Hi Lisa, I have a 14 year old Quaker parrot that somehow tore the skin under his left wing. I found him on our living room floor walking around and when I picked him up I noticed a bunch if dries blood under his wing.. After cleaning him up I saw to skin tear. It looks like it only tore through 1 layer of skin And it had stopped bleeding when I found him on Friday night. He is eating and moving his wing and acting as healthy as ever, however the the skin tear is in a spot where it cannot get air to it to dry it out and the area is moist. Should I be worried? Should I let it go and see how he does for another few days? Or should I take him to the vet? Is there anything I can put on it that toxin non-toxic to him? Or anything else I can do? He does not appear to be distressed or in pain. But he does keep picking at the area. Does not appear to be getting worse.
