cockatiel swollen toe
Hello.. I try not to write a long post.. So long story short..
Male cockatiel named Zarathustra had a fight, injured feet got swollen after a couple of weeks.
He took oral medication and three ointments and did show improvement. One of the ointments that vet gave us had gentamicin (it's my fault i know!). He had side effects as you may already know (polyuria, polydipsia), the vet thought he would die, he also had a lung accident while drinking water.. Also affected with chlamydia due to vet's fault..
After many miles to different cities and after 2 avian vets we consulted, the advice is to let him recover on his own and i totally agree with that.. But his toe the last 38 days is still a little bit swollen, he didn't get worse, he steps on the foot but he doesn't put pressure on the toe. He had recovered from everything else but gets a little watery droppings when he is anxious or eating a lot of greens, this is normal, right? Any advices would be much appreciated. Has anyone tried aloe vera gel? Is it natural straight form the plant?
