My bird has a runny nose, should I wait for it to pass?
by Andrea Charais
I've looked up other symptoms of being sick and she only has a runny nose (plus a few pulled feathers around her eye). I think otherwise she'll by fine. But 1) Should I keep her away from her playmate? and 2) Is it okay if I try and remove some of the mucus with a Q-tip? 'Cause it crusts over and is making it hard for her to preen (plus some seed got stuck in it, yuck)?
Would it be wiser to just take her over to the vet?
