Sore under wing

Put absolutely nothing on it. Your bird has to be examined by an Avian Vet in your driving area so they can find out what is wrong. Until you know what is wrong, it cannot be treated.

This does not mean to just leave your bird in pain. It means to find an Avian Vet in your driving area and have him examined. There is something that is either itching him or is hurting, so do not delay any longer getting him to an Avian Vet only. Dog and cat vets cannot treat birds as they are not licensed or trained to do so and end up doing nothing if you're lucky and killing your bird if you and he are not lucky.

Thanks for writing and let us know what avian vet has to say and what he does. In the meantime use no over the counter meds including any found at pet stores. Until you know what is wrong, it cannot be treated.
