Nose blood my Macaw

Recommended Posts

This morning my Macaw Holly’s cage contained a serious amount of blood. It looked as if she had caught her claw in a nostril,seems to be a slight tear at the bottom. She was a bit upset but eating and drinking ok. A few clots appeared through the morning during her sneezing. She has been very n my shoulder all day, to prevent her scratching. It seems to be bothering her a bit now and is oozing slightly. Am worried about putting her to bed this evening, when she is not being supervised. Any ideas very welcome. Many thanks.

Sorry only just seen this  & of course it's a Sunday . 

If it's stil oozing it will be irritating & may even be affecting her  breathing . If it was one of my birds I'd probably look to see if I could resolve the problem . But as your asking for advice I guess you need help & that would be best from a vet 

 Any blockage needs clearing , & the bleeding point(s) need cauterising which should settle her , but that's best done by the vet if your uncertain what to do
