Parakeet, Eye a little pink and swollen

by Karina
(Brooklyn, NY)

I have a parakeet who is between 2-3 years old. I just noticed that one of it's eyes is a bit pink and swollen. He tries to close that eye very often, so it seems he is pretty uncomfortable with it. What could it be and how do I treat it?

Pink and swollen eye on bird
by: Tracie

I am sorry, but Dr B can not tell you what is wrong without examining your bird. It is possible it is an infection and it is possible that the bird has something in it's eye.

If your bird takes baths and that hasn't helped, then you need to get the bird to an avian vet asap for an examination.

I hope all turns out okay.
