wing is hurt
by: Anonymous

Editor's note: If you want people to see and answer, you need to post a question, not an answer here to another question, at Parrot Questions
You will need to Find an Avian Vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be. If you used an avian vet before, then you either need to return to this vet or find another one that will do more testing.

Rays hurt wing
by: brookie

Hi im Brooke. My bird Ray has hurt his wing and i just notised it today when i got home from school.I know how he hurt it but i did not think he was going to get hurt by that. It may not seem that harmful but i kind of think it was to me. This is what happend,i took him out of his cage and brought him down stairs into the living room and i set him down on the floor and his foot got stuck in the carpet and when he pulled it up it got stuck in his wing.How do i cure it if my mom wont let me take it to the vet? Please write back, Brooke

Cockatiel with hurt wing
by: The Vet

You should take this bird to see an avian veterinarian now. Your sister (who is probably a good Dr.) is a bit pessimistic, and may not realize the advances we have achieved in avian medicine. It is not a guarantee that your bird will be put to sleep. There is something that could be done to help your bird, even if it is only antibiotics and pain management. And yes I do think she is in pain.

Benny the Cockatiel

I am so sorry to hear about Benny!
If I were you, (I know you respect your sister), but I would go and get a second opinion from another vet.
Don't throw in the towel until you have wagered ALL your options ok?
