Default Bleeding under wing

It's been a long time since I was here, but I hope it's still okay to reach out for help.

My budgie, Jakob, was bleeding under the wing this evening. I don't know why, and never saw blood actually drip. The avian vet is a 2- hour drive away, so I contacted a local vet and she agreed to see her. She examined her and said the wound looked closed. She put a tiny bit of ointment on it and gave her an injection of pain killer/ anti inflammatory.

She gave me manuka lind ointment in case it starts bleeding again. She got me to grab hold of her, so I know I can, if needed.

I opted to put her to "bed" shortly after we got home, as it was only an hour before her normal bed time, as I'm hoping she'll sleep and not think about this.

Is there any more I can or should do? Any suggestions as to how this could have happened?

Thanks in advance for any advice or reassurance.

My first thought is perhaps a broken blood feather, when new feathers are growing in there is a blood source and if the feather breaks it will bleed. The bleeding needs to be stopped right away but it sounds like whatever caused the bleeding in your bird is under control. Keep a close eye on it to make sure it does not start to bleed again, if it does you have to take action immediately to stop the bleeding. If there was any type of a small growth that the bird may have picked at that could also cause bleeding. I would keep Jakob quiet beyond this evening until you are sure that there will not be any further bleeding.

Dear Cody
Thank you very much for your reply and possible reasons. We got through the night and as you've suggested I'll keep her in the cage for now. She must have forgiven me for being the one to grab hold of her yesterday, as she came to the door wanting her belly rubbed this morning, and she's been singing too. She is changing feathers, so I'm hoping it could be related to that. It's been almost a year since she last changed feathers - it has always happened twice a year, or even a little bit more frequent, and she did seem really annoyed when the long tail feathers fell out recently. I'll keep a very close eye on her. And I'll action it immediately if I see bleeding.
Thank you again.
Dorte

Hi, Dorte

Please be sure to update us in a few days to let us know how little Jakob is doing.

I'm moving your thread over to the "Follow Up" section of the forum.

Best wishes!
