Parrot with bubble under the skin

by Yvette
(Valdosta, GA )

We came home on Tuesday evening and saw blood all over in my parrots cage. We looked and could not see anywhere where he could have punctured his wing. We left him alone to see if it would heal. The next day it seemed fine.

Then on Friday he had some blood on his cage again. I told my husband we should take him to vet. He gave him a bath and when we could see better it looks like a big bubble under his wing. It is on his top shoulder area and he has picked the hair around wound off. What could this possibly be? Any help would be appreciated. Also can birds have neosporin on them for healing?

You need to get to an avian veterinarian that is board certified. Do NOT put neosporin on your bird.
