Hi I have a 9yr old, male black headed caique. About a week

Customer Question

Hi I have a 9yr old, male black headed caique. About a week a go I noticed a bulge, towards his bottom. He hasn't had a dna so could possibly be a female. On closer inspection I then noticed that he has a split down his tummy and you can see bright pink. It's not at his vent, so what could it be? He's acting totally normal, eating well etc I do have some pics if u need to see them. Hope u can help. Kindest regards Iona

Hello Iona,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Hi, yes I am happy for you to keep looking. I have tried to attach a few photos of it, but it won't allow me to send the message with them. Is there another way I could send them? perhaps by email? I think it would help you a lot more if you can see exactly what I mean. Thank you for taking the time.

Hi Dr Dan, obviously I'm concerned so have been doing my own research. I think it may be a lipomas on the ventral abdomen. He has pellets but mainly a parrot seed mix from the pet store & fruit. Could he be obese? If it is I hope I have caught it in time to change his diet. I look forward to hearing from you.


 


Kindest regards
