African Grey - swollen nare
I have had an African Grey for approximately 6 years, however the last 6 months he has his nostril swollen. Unfortunately, in Greece I am not able to find a vet for birds so I am asking for your help.
His diet is mostly a mix of seeds, he does not sneeze, eats well, speaks and looks ok.
After having send some photos to a person in the Athens that has knowledge on birds (but not a vet) he suggested me to do two things.
Firstly, give him an antibiotic treatment for a few days. (Which I did a month ago)
Secondly, clean his nose with warm chamomile by robbing gently a cloth. (Which I am doing for almost a month) to remove anything stack in his nostril as he told me.
I attach and a few photos
Please tell me your opinion, what it might be and what I can do. As I wrote there is no vet as far as I know in Greece and especially in my town Patras to have him examined, so your respond will be of great importance to me.
PS: as I read in the internet I am thinking to change his diet to Harrison?s pellets, what do you think for this also?
Thanks in advance
