Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
I hope this comes through ok. I have looked on the web and everything seems to be pointing towards something called scaly face ? When I say off colour I mean he isnt himself, very quiet and breathing doesnt seem right.
It wont let me send with the photo I have so ill try again later as I have to go to work.
Hi, every time I attach a photo it denies me access and wont send. Is there any other address that I could send it to?
I have tried coverting the file but it isnt working. The growth looks like a dark scab above his right nostril, it started red and has turned a grey colour.
He has gone very quiet when he is normally very chirpy and chatty and he is sleeping alot. Please help very worried ?
I will try that thanks.His tail feathers do lift when he's quiet and dropping off to sleep yes?
Hi again.Iv'e never used flikr before so I hope it works?
The picture was perfect! That looks like a sinus granuloma. Right behind the cere is a large air filled sinus that causes a lot of the difficulties when birds have respiratory infections. Granulomas are basically pus pockets that have little or no moisture so they are very firm and can look like a mass. What this vet needs to do is to remove as much of this as possible and culture it. (The same way they would an infection from a dog or a cat.) That way we know for sure what antibiotic is best and most effective. Until we use the correct antibiotic and remove as much of the mass as possible he'll not return to full "color." Dr. Dan
