Gcconure injury


Head got scraped on door, removed scalp features,head ok,,apart from pin hole size blood(didn’t bleed),seems absolutely fine 2hrs later he’s chatting away from the darkness of his cage now..ty


Answer:

Hi William,

I would still contact your Avian Vet. Head injuries can be tricky with birds, and infection can set in quickly even if it doesn’t look serious. He could go from normal to very bad with no warning. It’s better to be sure he is OK.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
