She just jumped from her cage and is bleeding from her

Customer Question
She just jumped from...

She just jumped from her cage and is bleeding from her mouth. The blood is bright red and has a cut on her tongue that my husband can see. All vets are closed. What can I do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the bird?

No she seems fine otherwise.

Hi, I'm Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I'd like to help with your concerns regarding your bird.

What kind of bird is she?

How long ago did this happen?

How is she acting? Normal? Lethargic? Stumbling?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
She is a Goffin. She is acting normal and jumping around her cage. It happened about 10-15 minutes ago. My husband thinks he saw a cut on her tongue.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The bleeding seems to be slowing down.
Bird Specialist: Dr. Denise, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

O​k, I'm glad she is acting normally.

It sounds like she may have bit her tongue in the fall. The good news is that oral injuries heal very quickly.

I recommend keeping her confined and as calm as possible. As he heartrate and blood pressure return to normal, the cut should clot and heal.

What Customers are Saying:

Thank you so much!!! I love this service. It has given me peace of mind and extremely valuable information at an affordable price 24/7 to care for my beloved pets. THANK YOU

LindaCenterreach, NY

I found my experience with you to be very positive. Not only did the vet answer my question thoroughly, he left me with a better knowledge to follow up with my vet.

MarilouEast Taunton, MA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!

AlexLos Angeles, CA
