Please help! My 2 year old Macaw has 2 red bumps on the face, one on each side. A while ago the same red, pimple like bump was there and went away. I am concerned more this time because there is 2 and one is larger (it's still a small bump, just larger then the one on the other side)
My bird is eating and drinking and behaving fine otherwise.
Possible sweat gland or just a pimple or should I be more concerned?

Red bumps on Macaw
by: The Vet

Macaws commonly have allergies and they sometimes present with these red bumps. It can be other things to so it is something that needs to be looked at by an avian veterinarian.
