I was clipping the wings and he was of course not being that

Customer Question

I was clipping the wings and he was of course not being that calm I think I cut the wings too short but it could just be I cut one wing shorter then the other... is there a possiblity of something happening? it wasn't even. he seems fine but still worried. no blood came out.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the bird bleeding a lot?
Customer: NO, not at all. i thought I had cut his blood feather too short, but I could just be paranoid with the fact I couldn't cut it evenly.
JA: Phew. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the bird?
Customer: i was wondering if cutting the wings unevenly would harm him.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.

If no blood was present, chances are you didn't cut into any area of major concern. It is quite difficult to get wings even when you have a pet who would prefer to not sit still for the procedure. If you don't already have some on hand, make sure you're prepared with Quikstop or cornstarch in case this happens in the future.

Let me know if I can help further.
