parakeet has overgrown beak
(Wonder lake, Illinois)
My parakeet has an overgrown beak and everytime she grooms herself or picks her feathers she bleeds. She has blood and dried blood on her wings and under her wings. I gave her a sandpaper cover on one of her perches and her beak has gotten a little smaller but she still bleeds when she picks her feathers.
Can a vet do anything or will it eventually heal on its own? She is acting normal, eating and drinking fine and chirping normally. She been scratching the top of her beak on things by her nose in her cage but I think shes just trying to make it shrink?
