blood in droppings?

Sponsored Links
this morning I noticed a tiny drop of blood in Aba's droppings.

it was clearly blood and not something red that she ate.
it was about quarter the size of a grain of rice.
it was likely the first one she made this morning
it was basically watery gruel.

the second one she made was well formed with no blood.



Aba is thirty-five, great diet and feather and spoiled with love and affection.

she my life.
please advise.
is this trip to CAV?

thank you.

Re: blood in droppings?

Agreed with above, its always better to be safe than sorry. Blood in droppings is abnormal.

Re: blood in droppings?

I agree, automatic vet visit. Best of luck to Aba, please keep us updated.

Re: blood in droppings?

another vote for a CAV visit, and make sure to bring the offending poo. And make sure tey are Avian certified.

yes definitely hope for this

If it's pure red it's less likely internal and more likely to be a cut around the butt, it's almost black blood in poo that is the warning for internal bleeding as far as humans are concerned. found this out after a cancer scare I had when I was 19 from the doctor I went to. I'm about 99% sure I saw a thing for parrots that was essentially the same

Re: blood in droppings?

Just before you go, it is blood and not the result of feeding Beetroot or similar is it? Pooped my pants once or twice over this!

Re: blood in droppings?

Yes, fully agree with everyone regarding the CAV trip.

Blood clearly warrants a trip to the CAV's clinic.

That said, a couple of other points, when included with the noted blood in your statements supports the trip:

"- it was likely the first one she made this morning.
- it was basically watery gruel."

Generally, the first morning moment is the largest of the day, but tends to be a bit more dry than other moments and also well formed across the coloration and formation scale.

The fact that the second moment was well formed and drier than the first is a bit odd, since one would expect that a repeat of the first, if a health problem is the underling driver. On rare cases a shell 'may' cut an interliner, which may explain the spot of blood, but not the watery gruel you saw.

So as stated, if you still have those two moments, please take with!
