Swelling in neck area in a lovebird

by Veronica L.
(Houston, TX)

My lovebird is 18 years old and lately he has taken some falls from my shoulder. I noticed he has some swelling right above his breast bone in the neck area and he has lost a lot of weight. He has fallen from my shoulder because he'll lose his footing. Why is it swollen? What could be wrong with him and can it be cured?

Lovebird with swollen neck

Nobody can tell you why your bird is losing it's balance and has a swollen neck without the bird being physically examined. Please get your bird to an avian vet asap for an in person exam.
