This first started happening last winter. Chili started bleeding in the early evening and there are no 24 hour or emergency avian vets where I live so I had to wait until morning. But by the time I got her to the vet she had splashed in the water dish and the blood was gone. The vet checked her out and said she was fine. He suggested getting a humidifier to help with her cere/beak/feet/etc from getting too dry.
The next time it happened was a holiday weekend and I had to wait three days to get her in to see the vet. This time he said it might simply be trauma from flying into something, but again he couldn't find anything wrong with her.
Last month I noticed her cere looked very dark and there was a dark spot under her beak and a lot of her nails had black spots. The vet was worried it might be a liver problem at first, but after doing tests he thought it was just bruises and again said it was more "crash trama." Eventually the black spot under her beak grew out and disappeared, but her nails still look black.
Tonight she started bleeding again and I don't know what to do for her. The vet gave me QuikStop, but it's not flowing blood and I'm not really sure where it's originating from. I'm also worried that if I start rubbing this powder all over her face she'll just freak out and it'll just raise her blood pressure and make it worse.
Has anyone had a bird go through this? Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated because I'm at a total loss and feeling helpless.
Edit: I also want to add that for the last two days her balance seems to be off. She's flying around ok, but when she hops from perch to perch or is even just climbing on the bars, she ... slips. I don't know if she's actually falling or if she's losing her balance or if she's having a hard time gripping. But whatever is going on, it's not normal for her.
