    My 2 year old cockatiel just sneezed and some blood came out. I immediately called my vet but they can't see her until a week from now.

I will make...

    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 ?
