bird with swollen nare
by: Tracie

Dr B can not tell you what is wrong without examining your bird in person. He has answered this question before for other people. It is possible that the bird has something lodged in the nare, or it could be more serious. If something is lodged, then an avian vet will need to help clear it out and your bird will need antibiotics. If there is a growth, it will need to be biopsied.

Please take your bird to an avian vet right away. Do not take your bird to a regular dog/cat vet, your bird may not leave the office alive, because often they do not know how to treat small birds.
