I have a 6 months old cockatiel, her name is apricot and she is my life and my everything
Not long ago I noticed that her eyes were kinda swollen and were really teary?and her nostrils were red and flared up and has so dry discharge in it
I have been away bc I'm a medicine student and I was quarantined for like a month bc of my studies
When I came back I noticed her eyes were much more swollen and it was getting concerning
I used doxycycline and some eyes ointments
Nothing worked
We used to have a vet nearby but now it's closed
I would do anything for her
I cant bear to lose her please tell me what to do

I´m sorry to hear your bird is unwell.

Is there a vet maybe farther away? It could be a longer journey but if there are no other options...

Are there any online vets that you can consult?

I actually consulted two online vets and one recommended to use doxycycline and the other said to I think do saline flushes
I tried the saline flushes and one of her eyes is less swollen now and there's no visible mucus in that nostril side
