Quaker Parrot has pink growth on beak
Quaker Parrot with pink growth on cere
Hi. My mom's 6 year old Quaker Parrot has a small, pink growth on the top-side of her beak. It's a recent development, hasn't been there for long. She doesn't seem in distress. Eats normal, climbs around and outside the cage like normal and does her usual bird talk.
I've looked for Avian vets around her area and there are none. I even clicked on the "Find an Avian Vet" to the left hand side on this site but still nothing. She's checked with her dog's vet and they told her they don't treat birds.
I was searching online but didn't find anything resembling the growth. She doesn't know what to do without a vet around her. She's a Senior and doesn't travel far from home. I don't live near her so can't take the bird to a far away vet. Was hoping it's not something serious.
