Hello.
i have a Mexican double yellow parrot. he's 18 years old, he got his foot caught in his cage yesterday, November 14th 08, and it is now black. i was just wondering is it possible for him to lose his toe? and could this be a big danger to him?

thank you for your help

Parrot with toe problem

Yes there is a danger of infection and other serious problems; and yes he will probably lose his toe. You need to get him to an avian veterinarian immediately.
