Society Finch with small bumps on upper eye lid
I have a disabled society finch. He's in great health. Has a diet of whole foods, organic seed and pellet. He has one leg due to an injury he got at a pet store. He has always has medical care, since the day we got him.
I noticed he had a very small bump on an upper eye lid. It wasn't going away and another came up. We took him to his avian vet. He loves her, she got a sample and took a look a closer look. No bacteria was present. She looked for air sac mites and anything else. Nothing. She said we may of caught it early.
He was put on antibiotic eye drops for 7 days. It got a lot better. The 7 days were completed. He did improve quite a bit. However the bumps have come back just a little bit. He is not closing his eye like he first was.
The vet called yesterday to check on him. I'm waiting to hear back. So I started to look online just to see what I could find out.
Little bit stumped on what it may be. Ever hear of small bumps on an eyelid of a finch before?
I have four birds total. The others are perfectly fine. Nothing has spread to them. Everyone eats, plays sings and takes baths.
Could the bumps be the result of a small fight? I wonder....Squabbles can happen. There is another finch he puts up with up to a point. We have plans to change the cage situation so that will be resolved.
I have time to wait for an answer as he's already under medical care.
