Open Chest Wound.

by Mike
(Bullhead City, AZ, U.S.)

My African Grey, Female, 6 years old fell from her perch onto the tile floor and a small cut was observed on her chest. She stopped bleeding however never healed. A week later she fell off the perch onto the tile floor and reopen the same cut, now it is larger. I used AviVera spray by Avitec, will this cut self heel itself or will I need to see a avian vet.

Yes, you really need to get your bird to an avian vet ASAP. It could die of an infection very quickly. Their bones are hollow, it may even have broken bones or internal injuries.
