What can be done for a cracked beak in a parkeet?


Answer by  mb (5482)

The vet can seal the crack with a special glue but given time the beak will heal itself. A beak is a constantly growing feautre, more like a fingernail than a tooth.

If the crack is not too large a fine engineers file can be used to file it out. Otherwise take the bird to a specialist avian vet.

This can be painful for a bird, so the animal should be taken immediately to a vet. The vet will evaluate and provide a treatment plan.

Take it to the vet. A cracked beak can give the parrot big trouble eating. The vet will probably cauterize it - don't worry, it won't hurt the bird.
