Re: tongue infection ?

Can't tell from photo. Your friends bird needs to see a avian vet. Birds die very quickly, so don't wait. Even if it turns out to be nothing, its a good idea for any new bird to have a "well check". Hope everything turns out well.

Re: tongue infection ?

Yeah that cage is nasty and rusty and this bird could have ingested some of that rust I see and if it did get the bird to the avian vet and get it seen .

Re: tongue infection ?

Looks like a yeast infection at the very least. OMG poor bird. What conditions to have to live in.

Re: tongue infection ?

Hi, I have only ever seen something like that once before & at a guess I would say they have abcesses on their tongues due to Vitamin A deficiency. If this is the case they will have to see a Vet ASAP to have urgent treatment, the abcess will have to be lanced & they will have to have a course of antibiotics. Please don't delay.

Re: tongue infection ?

Unfortunately both of the zons had passed away, one in the morning and the other one in the afternoon after given a medicine. When he bought these zons, he did notice the birds slept most of the time and eating very little as he tought were normall as the birds imported from time 3 to 4 days before he bought it. Will this kind of infection will spread along to other birds ? Thx for the infomation
