my lovebird has been keeping one of her eyes closed off and on for awhile, slowly it began to start becoming bald, now it is bald under her eye, and it is swollen,,no loss of appetite, drinking just fine, only sign that anything is wrong with her is her being bald and swollen under her eye, and no she has no discharge or anything.

Bird with swollen eye
by: The Vet

This could be a nutritional problem or something more serious. Your bird should be eating 80% pellets, if not, then you should switch her. I recommend having her seen by an avian veterinarian for the eye problem. Don?t wait, it could become serious quickly.

her eye, and now it is swollen
by: Linda

Your bird needs to be seen by an Avian Vet in your driving area.

There is something very badly wrong here, and the only way to find out what is wrong is by taking her into the vet as we cannot diagnose or treat infections.

Hopefully, she just has a mild infection, and in order to find out what kind of infection it is, tests must be run by a licensed professional.

It could also have been injured which still means a trip to the Avian Vet.

Let us know what vet has to say, and thanks very much for writing,
Linda
