Help...Injured Sun Conure

This is a discussion thread · 3 replies
Roni:
My 7 year old sun conure recently wounded herself in the upper chest area & started bleeding. We rushed her to a vet (not Avian...it was a Saturday morning...closest one is over an hour away) and they patched her up with tissue glue. She was healing nicely, but just couldn't leave the scab alone...so, of course being a parrot just had to pluck it off. We tried putting a collar on her (both tube and e-collar), but that was a no-go. She thrashed around so much that I feared she might hurt herslf further...so I ended up having to take it off. The wound is not bleeding, but is raw...I was wondering if anyone out there has any ideas as to how to proceed...is using liquid band-aid a possibility? I would appreciate any ideas.

You obviously need an Avain vetranarian. They know all the tricks to aiding an injured bird.
If there is not one in your area, i'd call one and ask about how to treat the injury.
A good one in the Los Angeles area is Dr. Rosskopf (310) 679-0693.

I have taken my Sun conure there for a similar injury years ago and he healed very quickly.

Kiwi'sMama:
It's obvious that your sun conure is picking due to stress and discomfort from the wound. When you see her doing it distract her with one of her toys instead or a favie treat she likes. Try to discourage the picking as much as possible. I would take the sound advice that has already been given as well, call an avian vet and ask for advice as well as set an appointment for your little feather-baby. She needs an avian vet, not a mamalian one.
