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 of this with your bird. Do you have a copy of the xrays? Open fractures certainly have a higher incidence of complications with healing such as infection which can lead to none healing.
How long since the original surgery?
Ah ok, so not really that long in terms of bone healing. I would not give up on the leg at this stage then, there is is a reasonable prospect of healing. If there was still no progress in say another 4 weeks time then I would be concerned that it wouldn't heal. Really the vet that performed the surgery and has the xray information is going to be best placed to offer you advise on this.
I hope that helps? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
You're welcome. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your feathered friend!
