Self inflicted wounds

by Paola

My sun conure has apparently bit her foot to the point of bleeding. I've bern putting a combination olive oil/ground cayenne pepper on the wound to deter her from further biting herself. Do I need to have a vet look at her?

Bird picks until bleeding

Yes, you need to Find an Avian Vet for your bird. You need to find out what is bothering the bird that it picks on it's foot and now make sure it doesn't a have an infection.

Thanks for asking! Don't take the bird to a dog/cat vet, they often hurt, or even kill birds due to lack of experience and training.
