no treatment?
by: Anonymous

What about subcutaneous fluids, fatty acids, vit A, colchicine, allopurinol? Euthanize without attempting treatment?

Bird with gout
by: The Avian Vet

The images you show are consistent with articular gout. This is frequently related to kidney failure. Gout is one of the most painful conditions and she is certainly suffering. Unfortunately this has no cure and euthanasia is the recommended treatment. I am sorry.
