Guys please I am need of help!
I have a lil budgie boy. Today morning i discovered he holds his left feet funny. I took him out observed it and discovered a lil bruise like reddish area (its not big barely diff than the orher leg) inside of his leg curve (dunno how to discribe it better). He doesn't put weight on it and tries to lift it as much as possible. His grip is lighter with that foot and doesn't fully strech it. He moves it and use it but spare it a lot.
He eat chirps and fly. Yesterday when Ive put my hand near him to pet him he didn't see my hand in time and he got frigthened and flew off in a panic. Maybe thats where it happened? </3 He is very skittish but hand tame. He sits on my glasses all the time, on my shoulder and finger, and he allowes only me to touch him. But he is still skittish, dispite that he is with me for 3 years now and we are bonded as much i think he is able to.
I went down to a vet (without him and not avian vet) and asked what to do. Do you work with birds at all? He said they can't do much as they are not avian vet, but asked me to observe him and if it gets worse there's a good avian vet where i can take him.
That avain vet i know well and have taken him 2-3 times already but they have moved. Very far away. We don't have a car and its 0 Celcius out there and its at least 1hour of public transport of which i don't want to expose him if it's avoidable. Of course if i have to i will.
But I need suggestions. He is my life Im worried beyond belief.
Sorry for the long post! waiting for suggestions!
thank you Nashisa
