My lovebird huge hole in left nare! Help
by Ivelisse Sanchez
This is what I removed
He was treated with topical medication for a fungus in his left nostril that had caused his nostril to grow huge. The doctor put inside his nostril some antifungal medicine and we were suppose to take him back a week later to remove it and we didn't.
It's been about a year now I was going to cut it out cause it's started growing bigger and I treated him with antifungal myself and it stopped but the thing he had inside his nostril was to big, it even overgrew his beak! And it was bothering him to much, he couldn't breath right and he was constantly scratching it.
Today, when I was finally removing it gently, all of a sudden it simply came all out, it didn't hurt him, he seemed relieved, but now he's got this huge hole left by the thing he had inside the nostril, it's looks gross and I can see even his other nostril from inside there and it worries me, cause now he has that so exposed!! I'm giving him antibiotics oral and topical, just in case but I wanna know, what's gonna happen?! Is that hole going to close eventually, it's too big and he's to exposed! What do I do now? Please somebody help me.........
I know the vet isn't going to do much,,,,,,it's already gone and he charged me $300 for putting a little of antifungal on my bird, so I'm not going back. I've treated him by the recommendations of a friend's friend who's a recently graduated vet. But I don't know what to do! I want that to heal and close eventually, how can I stimulate that? What can I do? What will stimulate his beak to grow & his "wound" to heal? Somebody who may know something.....please tell me.
Somebody with constructive advice is welcomed! Thank You!
