    bleeding

    It looks like 3 open wounds. I'm thinking of going to the animal hospital. It looks like it's scabbing up now but I don't know what to do,I feel bad for him. He's not acting like he's hurt. I just don't know.

    Re: bleeding

    Any idea how it got the wounds? any sharp bits in the cage or recents incidences?

    A visit to an Avian vet would be a good idea just to check it out and make sure the wounds are clean.

    Yes, definetly have the avian vet check it out. They may have some insight to what cut him, as well, if you can't tell for sure. Bleeding is VERY serious in budgies- they have very little blood, and even a few drops is a lot!
    If the bleeding will not stop, use cornstarch or flour to help it clot until you can get to the vet.

    I would take him to the animal doctor soon because even though it may seem like it doesn't hurt, he can be hiding the pain. That is what most budgies do.:|
