I have a Goffin's Cockatoo that has had a sore under her

Customer Question

I have a Goffin's Cockatoo that has had a sore under her wing for well over a year. She saw a Vet and was prescribed meds that proved ineffective at healing her wounds. She also was tested for two rare viral infections that came back negative(almost 1000 dollars later).
I use Prime power supplement daily --- no other special diet or medications. Any suggestions?

Hi, I'm sorry to hear you're dealing with a frustrating wound on your bird. Sometimes the first treatment that we try for a problem doesn't work like we'd hoped. I recommend having your veterinarian recheck your bird and try a different course of treatment. If your veterinarian does not usually care for many birds, you could also ask them for a referral to someone that has more bird experience, if available in your area. Good luck!

I hope you're able to find someone to help get your bird healed up. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reply! Good luck!
