Open Sore on Underside near leg
by Melissa Michaud
(Cadiz, Kentucky USA)
My parrotlet has an open sore on her underside near her leg. She is approximately 13 years old and has never had any illness. She is still eating, drinking, alert and vivacious other than the pain from the sore which is causing her to favor the good leg.
In your experience are you familiar with any possible causes for this. She is on primarily a cockatiel food diet (3D pet products) with some dehydrated fruits, veggies and bread. I contacted an avian vet who said to treat the sore with neosporin and monitor her closely for any signs of healing or deterioration. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Kiwi is my baby and I cannot imagine life without her.
