My cockatoo has a lump on his right shoulder. I just noticed yesterday when I was hosing him. I took him to the vet he says that it is not a feather cyst but that it is a tumor and may require removal of my birds wing.
A sample was drawn of the fluid and the lump was aspirated and stitched. Robbie is happy, not in any pain and is eating, playing at voiding quite well.
When the syringe was expelled the fluid was like a tannish red. and there was blood.
I need to know what to do? I have had Robbie since 2004. He is a very big part of me and I have already lost a dog this year. My family thinks that I should have him put to sleep if there is needed amputation. Please help me out here
