wing bleeding

My parakeet has opened an on its wing until it has started bleeding. Its on the joint closest to its neck.
Its about the size of a large pencil eraser.

Can anything be done to stop it from doing that

Bird with wing bleeding

Yes, probably. Have it seen by an avian veterinarian to determine the cause.

Find an Avian Vet link if you don't have an avian vet.

Bleeding bird
by: Alex

Is is stll bleeding? If so, get some styptic powder or cornflour and try and stem the blood loss by clotting it at the source (wound).

Whether it has stopped or not, get your bird to an avian vet ASAP. Birds only have a few mls of blood, so a small cut worth of blood to us, is a large amount of blood loss for a bird which can prove fatal f not treated as an EMERGENCY.

If it has stopped it will most lkely keep bleedng everytme your bird disturbs the site.

How did the bird injure itself?

If the bird injured itself for example biting at the area etc... the avian vet wll be able to help advise you on any reasons that the bird is dong this and if there is irrtaton they can advise and treat your bird.

Thanks for your question.

Your bird needs to be examined by an Avian Vet ONLY right away. It is possible there is something on his skin causing him to pick at this area. Only an Avian Vet can examine, diagnose and treat birds because they are the only ones licensed and trained to do so.

You live in the land of bird breeding facilities and avian vets, so it will not be too hard to find one, and your bird will die either from blood loss or the infection/tumor that is causing him to bite at this area if you don't move quickly.
