Puffy eye lid

Greetings,
Over the past couple of weeks, I've noticed that the right eye of my parrot has a "puffy" appearance compared to his left eye. I attached a picture of each eye for your thoughts. I know there is a vet an hour North of me, so I may end up heading that way once I can get some time off work.
Thanks,
Clarence

Re: Puffy eye lid

Hi! One of my birds had that happen a few years ago. It turned out to be conjunctivitis. Some antibiotic drops and good as new in a few days. A vet visit might be a good idea. Good luck.

WoW what a beauty you have there !!!! AWESOME
Riley's mom is quite correct, it could be conjunctivitis.
I would also advise a visit to a good avian vet.
Below is a link explaining the eye, conjunctivitis etc

Let us know how he is doing !!!!
Take care

Re: Puffy eye lid

Had the vet visit, and the news was not the best.
We went home with some eye drops in hoping this would clear up the inflammation in a week or so.
If not, then he suspects avian pox...

Re: Puffy eye lid

Sometimes it takes longer than a week to clear up inflammation. To be honest, we deal with avian pox in the wild birds, and it doesn't look like this. Wait and see what the meds do. Hang in there.

Re: Puffy eye lid

We will.
It's just part of the commitment to owning a parrot. Helps get rid of that "extra money" we have laying around the house....
