Sun conure swollen neck

by Katie

Good afternoon. Today after coming back from work I checked on my parrots and notice that one of my sun conures (Summer) had the right side of her neck swollen. A portion of her troat actually does too. She looks puffy and nothing like herself. She is only 5 months old and I will really hate to see her go. I hand feed her so she does not starve and is looking somewhat ok but will she make it through? I am really extremely worry, can anyone please help me. I will take her to a vet but there are none that specialize on birds in my area. This morning before I left for work she was fine so what could have happend since??? Please anyone!

You do need to take your bird to an avian vet. Maybe there is one closer than you think. Please check our Find an Avian Vet page. If you don't see one listed there, then do a search on the sites at the links at the top of the page.

Also, call breeders in your area. If they are reputable breeders, then they will take their birds to avian vets, so they should have a vet to recommend.

Let us know what you find out.
