I have an old cockatiel. About 15 years old I think. He's blind now too. Sad little guy.
His beak has been growing. It's really long now. The center part is curling around. I'm concerned that it may grow too far around. Scary.
I'll try to post a pic sometime.
But is it possible to clip his beak? I was thinking maybe with dog toe nail clippers. I don't really want to go to the vet, but I don't want to mess his beak up.
He is able to eat ok. I have a parakeet that looks after him too. A nurse keet. : It's good that this old guy has the keet though.
What do I do?
This guy has got to be in his last days. He just sits around on the bottom of the cage all day. I didn't want to do anything before because I thought it would traumatize him. Now I'm worried what will happen if the beak continues curling around. The middle part is grown so far that I think I could snip it myself probably. But I'm not sure. I've done toenails before, but this is a little more serious.
