I'm new to the group. I'm in Greensboro, NC and have a question aboout my pet Tiel.
Thursday night he flew off of my husband and started limping. I immediatley called the only Avian vet
near us, an hour and half away to see what to do. They said to keep him calm, watch for shock and call our regular Vet
on Friday. Our reg. Vet sees birds, but is not an avian specialist. We called him Friday and he said to watch him til Monday,which we are, but now I'm not so sure.
My Tiel, Perch acts normal except for the limp. He's eating, his eyes are bright, droppings normal, he's not fluffed up and still trys to climb so I guess it's not too bad, but I don't want him to be in pain or have permanant damage because I didn't go to the Vet sooner. He's curling his toes so, I'm pretty sure it's not broken, but he won't put any weight on and when he sits he leans to the other side that's not hurt.
