Old Parakeet Left Foot Problems.

by Angelie
(MA)

My 15+ year old parakeet has been laying on the bottom of the cage for a day now. He eats and drinks but seems to be having trouble with his left leg/foot. He is unable to land on perch with both feet, he is using just hs right leg/foot and his beak for postioning and balance. He still flys but is somewhat less active than usual. My other parakeets feed him and seem to take care of him. He does seem to have pain in his foot. What shoould I do?

It could be your bird is at the end of it's life. Dr. B can not help your bird with this over the Internet. You should take your bird to an avian vet to be examined to see if there is anything that can be done to help him.

I am sorry for you and your bird. It must be hard to see your bird like this.
