    Cockatiel swollen foot and leg

    Hello, my cockatiel Rudy broke his wing and while it was taped up he was on the bottom of his cage and during this time, his right foot that had been sprained previously began swelling out of control. His left foot appears fine but now his left leg appears to be swollen and hes actually putting all of his weight on his right foot, the swollen foot. The vet called it bumble foot. Anyone have any ideas? Hes already on metacam and dmso for inflammation.

    Hi, and welcome to the community. Since both feet are now swelling, in my view, I suggest calling the vet and take him back in to see those feet. It could be something neurological. Even though he is taking meds, it could be something that requires another medication.
