Ask a Bird Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Sorry to hear about Boris' leg. Is he placing any weight on it at all? Does he seem to be eating/drinking?
Hmm ok. It does sound like he is in discomfort. This may just be a soft tissue injury (sprain) but there is also the possibility of a fracture as their bones are very delicate. It may be best to get him checked by a vet (ideally with avian experience) to make sure that is not the case and possibly get some pain relief for him.
I hope that helps? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice. Chris
Do you have any prescribed pain relief such as metacam?
Yes but they would need to examine the bird first
Sorry to hear that. If it is a sprain then it may well right itself with rest, but if he is struggling to perch then that is slightly more concerning.
