I have a poorly freddie:(

My budgie has a blood and very loose feathers right at the tip of his wing...a couple of the feathers can appear to be at 90 at times and looks like its causing him some bother.

Is this something I can sort myself by pulling the loose and blood covered feathers off or am I gonna have to take him to the vet.

I have researched my local vet but they don't deal with birds for some reason :mad:

He also has a bit of a pant on him pretty constantly which is a slight concern

If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

Attached is a couple of pics but cant really get a good angle but you get the gist

Many thanks in advance

Please take Freddie to an Avian vet. It sounds like infection is already setting in with how you described his breathing and you don't want to cause more trauma to his wings by pulling at the feathers. If you cannot locate an avian vet call the pet store or breeder where you got him and ask where they get their birds treated.
I hope Freddie finds the help he needs asap.

Agree with Niamhf, please take him to the Vet. Do not pull any feathers as you may escalate the situation. I hope he's alright. :(
Try and post your photos again because I can't see them. Is there anywhere he could have hurt himself in his cage or out of his cage?
