Quaker Parrot eye Injury
by Ken Munt
Please Help! We found a 2 month old Quaker parrot on the road. Apparently, it was hit by a car or something. The right side of the bird was injured. We nursed it back to health, and it is doing well. Its been 3 days since the injury and the right eye is "White" and "Cloudy". It is apparent that is cannot see out of this eye presently. Will it get better? I think it is the Nictitating Membrane. We have been putting an antibiotic cream that was suggested by someone for a Pet store.
Has anyone any experience with this situation? Will the membrane go away and sight be restored in the right eye?
Any help would be appreciated.
