Bleeding conure
by: Alex

I understand that you and the girl need desperate help.

There is absolutely nothing we can do.

I understand she cannot drive, but someone like a parent must be able to get her t a vet. If someone can't, then can someone lend her some money to do so.

She will also need money for vet treatment.

We cannot advise on what to do as we cannot examine the bird.

This bird needs to be seen IMMEDIATELY.

She will at least need to phone an avian vet and at least have a phone consult, although they will need to see the bird, but may be able to give some advice urgently.

I do not blame the girl, but rather the parents. They allowed her to have a pet, but they don't seem to be able to take the pet to the vet when the pet is seriously injured. This is called IRRESPONSIBLE ownership as the parents are the responsible carers.

This bird IS SERIOUSLY INJURED and in a lot of pain.

No medication should be given apart from when prescribed by an avian vet. So DO NOT give anything in the meantime.

Birds die from small amounts of blood loss due to the fact that their small bodies only hold a few millilitres of blood. This makes any bleeding serious and life threatening.

Angelica, if I've read correctly, you said that the girl's conure's eye is swollen, also bleeding from its left nostril. She's underage so she can not drive, meaning she can't reach the vet until Tuesday.
Where on earth do you live? Is there anything at all that people call a taxi or a cab, a bus or even train where you both live?.
This poor bird is in this condition and he has to wait until TUESDAY? Why Tuesday? Can't you help these two in need?
I don't know anything about you, where you live or your situation but "if you can" would you take the bird ASAP to an Avian vet or any other vet for this girl?
This is an emergency and I pray that this poor little bird doesn't pass before the morning because birds have very little blood. Being here Angelica really isn't helping at this time. Take care and God bless.
Angelica, now is the time for action and not talking or giving advice! Please show how much you really care and your love for animals and humans.
In a situation like this, I will even spend my OWN money and hire a taxi to help these two. God bless.

This an emergency and the bird might not live until it's vet visit on Tuesday. When the appointment was made it should have been stressed that it is an emergency and the proper vet wouldn't make an appointment for five days later, they would have said to bring the bird in right away. Birds do not have a lot of blood and any blood loss is critical. Please do not wait.

Start calling local VET places and ask for over the phone help. The best thing to do is to get AVIAN assistance. You will be surprised sometimes someone kind will offer advise. The info was too vague, can you explain how the Conure got like this? A neighbor or family friend can sometimes help or offer a ride but money Is needed for sure.

bleeding conure must see avian vet
by: Tracie

There is nothing anyone can do over the Internet. The bird MUST see an avian vet right away. She needs to find a different avian vet if the one she has will not fit the bird in the schedule when it is an emergency.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird.
