    So I don't know what he was doing but Tyrion screamed and then was pacing his cage ...I went to his cage and asked him what was wrong and found that he had tore off one of his nails right to the skin ...I washed it and put flour on it and have stoped the bleeding for the most part but he keeps bugging at it ....right now it looks like its dried blood clotted with a tiny bit of fresh blood on it ....do I watch overnight or go to the vet who doesn't have an avian vet on tonight but he will be seen in the morning ....HELP!!!! :sad10::sad10::sad10:

    If it's not actively bleeding, I'd watch overnight. Can you do anything to distract him?

    Poor Tyrion. Good thing he has you to take care of him. Do you know how he hurt his foot? Is there something that needs to be removed from his cage?

    He should be fine as long as the bleeding has stopped. Tuchis TAG has lost two of his nails at about the same place because he has to pick on other birds and I’ve just let them heal on their own. A vet isn’t going to be able to do a whole lot anyway. They might be able to get stitches in there but it probably isn’t worth the hassle or pain.

    Sure glad to hear he's doing okay... must have hurt, I know when I get paper cuts, or have a fingernail too short, I'm a baby! He probably enjoyed Mommy sleeping near him. :heart:
