Customer Question

She has what appears to be a tiny growth above her beak and discoloring surrounding it.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the bird's name and age?
Customer: Francis and she is 7.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Francis?
Customer: She has had 3 sets of babies in the past and after the dad died we added a juvenile male last year.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
