So my lovebird was out flying around and landed on my Quaker’s cage and one of my quakers immediately bit him and latched on, he let go before it got to bad and cut my LB a bird. He’s overall ok and acting normal, and we cleaned up the cut immediately with salt water and we’re on our way to the store to get some neosporin (however you spell that) and most likely something else they might have at pet smart. But I wanted to ask what I should do and if I should take him to the vet once they open since it’s Easter and they’re closed today. Is there anything I can do at home or should I take him to the vet asap for antibiotics? The toe affected is only and barely swollen, most likely from the actual initial trauma from the bite as that happens to about any living being. I’m not sure what else to do at home or if I need to take him to the vet and what signs they’re might be that are signs he needs to go to the vet.

Just keep an eye on it. As long as he is not picking at it and it doesn’t seem infected, foot injuries usually heal fine on their own 🙂
