My African Grey is limping

by Julie H.

My African Grey is about 10 years old, and he's never had any health problems. Yesterday we noticed that he is limping with his right leg, and we don't know why- we didn't see anything happen to him. He can still climb up and down and in and out of his cage, and walk around. It looks like he struggles, though, and I didn't know if this is something that will pass because he is still so mobile or if it needs to be looked at by a professional. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!

Lew is correct, the only way you can find out what is wrong is to take your bird to an avian vet. Dr. B can not determine what is wrong or help your bird without seeing the bird and running tests.

Bring your bird to the vet right away.
