    911 Injured cockatiel. Help

    Old wound opened up after he fell from his quarantine cage. It’s a pyrostyle injury. I’m worried about the recovery. He’s taking antibiotics since Friday and I’ve started topical ointment today which is why it’s wet. Does it look very concerning ?

    Peeled foot?

    Hi guys, so I kinda tripped and fell against my bird’s cage and he yelped (he was climbing the bars) and was lifting his foot up for a bit but there’s no bleeding, and this is how his foot looks like. Should I put anything on it or does it warrant a vet visit? thank you!
