Nanday Conure broken toe
I purchased a Nanday Conure today and the pet store informed me his toe had been broken previously. I didn't really think to ask when this happened but it is pretty noticable. It doesn't look like a recent break to me.
Anyway, he was clinging to the side of his cage and I figured he was a little nervous. But, for several hours that is all he has done. I have gotten him out of the cage and he perches on my shoulder and acts fine.
He is eating well and doesn't seem to be in distress. However, I'm wondering if it hurts his foot to actually stand on his perches. I don't think it is something life threatening but I want him to be comfortable. Would this cause him to be hurting? He doesnt act as if it hurts him when he is out of the cage.
Also, I was wondering if there is anything an avian vet would be able to do to fix the proble with his broken toe? There is no blood or limping or anything like that. I just cant imagine why he would be hanging on to the sides of the cage instead of using the perches.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
