sore on parrotlets toe
(Concord, NH, USA)
Yesterday I was gone for about 2 hours and when I returned I took my parrotlet out of his cage and noticed that on his left foot he has a red mark. It looks like a blood blister.
His toe is not swollen and he is still standing and using it but I am curious to know what is wrong with his toe. I checked all of his toys and perches and didn't happen to see anything that would cause the injury.
In his cage he has manzita perches, rope perches, dragon wood perches, and grape wood perches.
The rope perches do not have any frayed parts so I do not know what would have caused the mark. We use filtered water, he gets a mixture of seed, pellets, fruits and veggies. His food and water as well as his cage are cleaned on a daily basis. I have attached a picture to show what it looks like so hopefully that will help.
If he needs to go to the vets I will bring him tomorrow when my avian vet is open.
