    I’m glad the vet visit went well, and I hope she gets better quickly!

    She's not limping that much anymore. The scab is still there but he the ver did mess with the scab a little so he said that's why she bled a little. But I'm seeing little Improvements :fairy2:

    Update. Hey guys. I'm sharing some pictures of my birds feet. Its going to be a long road to recovery. The vet said it might take of couple of months for it to fully heal. But on the.bright side, I'm seeing a difference. It's not huge but already its not spreading or getting worse.

    Oh, that looks bad, did he give her an antibiotic? Get rid of those sand perches, if you have them. Use some vet wrap and wrap, thickly all remaining perches, you can get it pretty cheap at Walmart ,also increase her protein, and ask your vet for this, its fabulous, put on twice a day till healed, it's about 30 to 50 dollars a tube, depending upon your vets prices.

    Yikes, that does look like a fairly bad case, but I can see the improvement already too!

    No its actually healing. The first picture is before and the other one was taken today. Yes he prescribed her gentamicin, and an antibacterial medicine and vetericyn. I got rid of all the bad perches. Ita a bad case of bumble foot but it will heal if I'm being consistent with the meds

    Omg this is good to know. I almost got one of those cement perches, and I did consider a sand perch. I didn't think they could bother his skin, but that makes sense! He's got a calcium perch he sleeps on, and a 1 1/2" dowel perch that I clean with bleach & hot water when I clean his cage. When he's out of his cage he has all soft places to sit. The lovebirds have all different things some hard some soft and never had problems with them. So concerned about their feet.
