The best advice anyone here can give you is to take your bird to the vet as soon as possible. Do you know if there are any avian (bird) vets in your area? If not, ANY vet would be better than leaving it be. It looks paralyzed (but I am not sure). Please keep the cat away from him, and keep him warm and calm. Look for a vet and bring him asap! Keep us posted.

Second that! An injury should be faced-on with a vet visit ASAP before any serious or permanent damage can be done. In your case, I would try get in an emergency visit because a cat's claw can seriously harm and possibly kill a bird.

Re: leg and feature of my parrot is not nornal

His leg looks dislocated to me, but regardless if it's dislocated or broken, the only hope of fixing the leg is a vet, preferably an avian one. And don't wait, he needs to go now. The longer these things have to heal wrong, the harder they re to fix without leaving the bird with some disability.

I would also strongly suggest never allowing the cat around the bird. If the bird is out, put the cat in another room and if the cat is in the room, keep the bird in it's cage. Obviously this in not one of those situations where they can coexist peacefully!

Hello Priyesh,

Even if there were a veterinarian here, there would be nothing they could do for your bird except possibly make recommendations, but if you have no veterinarian near you, those recommendations would be of little value.

What town and state are you in, maybe we could locate the name and contact for a veterinarian near you from here.....

And just so you know, even if there's nothing the vet can do to fix the leg, this is NOT something to euthanize him over! I bring this up because many vets do not see birds lives as important and would suggest killing them. My moms bird broke her foot some years back, and 2 vets suggested killing her over it. Needless to say, that did not happen and she is alive, healthy and happy today. She also has another bird with reduced mobility due to a stroke who also has a happy life, just needs some special accommodations to get around easier.

In fact, many people have disabled birds who lead happy, healthy full lives They have an amazing ability to overcome disabilities and there are a lot of people on this forum with birds who are disabled who can guide you into making a few accommodations in the cage/play area to help your bird get around better But that's saying a vet can't fix the leg problem. Hopefully, it can be re-set and your birdie heals completely
