Re: Blue and Gold Macaw Beak Problems

Serious fungus (like humans with toenailissues) should always be treated 'from the inside out' as well as just coating the outside with ointment. That means orally medicating your bird. (Get some -powdered- pills inside him/her, so the fungus gets destroyed from the base).

Re: Blue and Gold Macaw Beak Problems

Wellllllllllllllllll... since the thread has been bumped... I guess I'll add my usual links about vets...

Certified Avian Vets
https://abvp.com/animal-owners/find-an-abvp-specialist/
If none are near you...
Avian Veterinarians
http://www.aav.org/search/custom.asp?id=1803
In my opinion, any of the vets listed here should be better than a regular vet.

This is just what I was looking for the other day! Thanks for posting it! I'm so glad someone bumped an old thread! Lol!

Re: Blue and Gold Macaw Beak Problems

I know this is a old post but I am so grateful to see someone dealing with the same issue we are having with Mango. I could copy your post word for word but a few exceptions. Mango is 4 with no health problems. Mango plays outside in a enclosed area but no access to wild birds. Mango is gave a healthy diet. Any new insight on this? I do have pics.
