question about a Senegal

I have noticed a bald spot on the frontside neck of my 18 year old Senegal. I am also concerned about possible weight loss. Otherwise, he is active and has a good appetite. No personality changes either.

Senegal w/feather and weight loss
by: Tracie

Dr B suggests that you take your bird to see an avian vet soon. Bald spots are never normal and weight loss is dangerous for birds.

Dr B can not help you over the Internet because your bird needs to be examined and tests run in order to know what treatment to administer. You don't want to "play around" with treatments trying to find the right one while your bird just gets worse.

I hope your vet will be able to quickly tell what is wrong and help your bird.
