Customer Question
My bird is 4...

My bird is 4 months old and she aciddentily flew in hot wax

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with your bird?

What do I do

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does your bird seem to hurt?

She plays she eats but I don't know if she can go to the bathroom

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the bird's name?

Kiwi

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kiwi?

No but I have a question is there any medicine she can take

How long ago did this happen and which areas of the body were covered? What have you done, if anything, to remove the wax?

What kind of bird?

What Customers are Saying:

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.
