Hello. I have a 12 week old cockatiel that broke a leg two days ago. The vet raped it but didn't prescribe any pain meds. Should I give my cockatiel junior ibuprofen and if so, how much and how often?

I would call your vet for that information.

Aspirin and ibuprophen re not prescribed for birds. There has been no dosage established for a bird. Call your vet and ask for Metacam.
