Thanks for assuring me!Awww Roy really likes apples, then!
You should be ok without seeing a doctor
Parrots don't have saliva, so they don't have much in their mouths to cause infection in a bite wound.
I had a very deep bite from a large cockatoo last summer and it healed well by just keeping it clean and covered
Gotchu i already knew about the biting being apart of owning a parrot, although i used to own lovebirds and budgies for years. And honestly, over time i've gotten bitten multiple times but i never bled personally. Although, my dad was playing with my old lovebirds a couple years ago and he was bitten in the forehead, it bled hehBites happen! As covered above, as long as you keep it clean, it will quickly heal.
It's part of being owned by a Parrot!
You have likely learned an important point: After the first big bite of an Apple its better to let them position the final bite, some place other than you fingers.
As with any wound, there is always a possibility of infectionhey i wish u and ur birds a grea day!
I was giving my parrot, roy some apples and he seemed so excited to eat it he accidentally bit my thumb and it bled a little i put on 2 bandages and some ice and it stopped hurting should i visit a doctor or smth ? View attachment 47921
thanks for the information about infections I am fine it was a minor bite and caused little to no harm. Also yes he seemed very upset after he accidentally bit me i petted him to let him know its absolutely fine!As with any wound, there is always a possibility of infection
If, after several days, you have redness, swelling and increased pain you should a doctor. Has your "friend" apologized yet?
