    This morning I noticed Wally has what looks to be a chip or puncture in her beak, near her nares :( She is eating, drinking, and playing with her toys as usual but I'm taking her to the vet to have it checked out. Anyone have had this happen?

    I've had a few with trauma to their beak...usual route is antibiotics in case and a bit of manuka honey. The last one was Rocco jumping Zia and she really gouged the side of his beak. The vet even thought it would grow with a bit of an issue but it didn't. Healed up well. Hugs to both of you.

    @Mizzely ...Jingo had a bite at one time and she can update you.

    We are back from the vet; she gave us some silvadene and said to basically put some on the area 2x daily. With the location, the vet was reluctant to prescribe an oral antibiotic at this time but we have a check up next week to see how it goes.

    @webchirp I forgot to ask about the manuka honey. What did you do for Roccoco and Zia?

    Zia was okay as she inflicted the injury...but the vet did prescribe antibiotics and I have a bottle of manuka honey that I put on things right away. It's really good stuff. His beak was very gouged at the edge and bleeding though.

    Silvadene is antibacterial, so that should be good coverage.

    Thanks everyone! I'm not going to let Wally and Luna have playtime together anymore, which really bums me out but its for the best as Wally can be such a bully without any sense of fear in her :(

    Sorry that Wally got hurt. Good that you got her to the vet and you have medication to treat the injury. Hope all will be well.
