My Rose Breasted Cockatoo is swollen on her left side of the body under her left wing. My father took her to the vet and said "they deflated her" but the swelling has returned. She seems to be sleeping more than usual . What could be the cause ?

Cockatoo with swollen spot

Ouch, poor thing. It doesn't sound like you took your bird to an avian vet. The fluid in the lump needs to be tested so that you know what you are treating.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link 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.
