I understand your concern, and your bird could have a tumor that needs to be examined.

You will have to take him to an Avian Vet in your driving area, and the phone book is a good place to start looking. Sometimes dog and cat vets can also tell you where to find an avian vet, so get busy and find one.

All vets can be expensive, so make sure this bird is seen by only an Avian Vet as dog and cat vets will charge you a lot of money for nothing as they are not licensed or trained in bird care.

Some vets will work with you and allow you to pay your bill off with so much money paid each month. You would have to pay up to half up front and then pay out the rest as you can if they agree. If they agree, do not miss even one payment, and you will have an avian vet for your bird for life or another bird.

Anyone owning birds has to also know where an avian vet is because birds get sick or injured just like other pets and humans.

Thanks for writing and let us know what avian vet has to say.
