hi all, sorry to post here but I've literally just signed up and have no idea how to post my own forum. My sun conure got grabbed by my dog on Tuesday and it left his skull exposed, we went to the vet and he stitched it up and gave him antibiotics and told us to put solosite (soothing, hydrating, healing gel) on it every few hours to keep it moist, which I've been doing. now my problem is, I don't think the skin is healing, I'm scared its breaking down and dying? and the skin grew over the stitches? is that a problem? I have no idea how the skin is supposed to look and I can't get into the vet until Tuesday because my vet only works some days. I'm just really scared and have no idea what to do.

Hello Jayde, Have you checked in case there is an emergency clinic in your area? Or even in the next city over?

@Macawnutz Please can we make Jaydes comment her own thread to get her some help in the health/emergency forum?

In a case like this it would have been best for the vet to have a follow up exam of the wound. Can you get another appointment?

It is frustration for us to help someone who has a medical bird issue and then we don't have any follow up. I hope your bird's wound heals without complication.
