A bruise is caused by internal bleeding and although bruises cause pain because they are sore, bruises heal without the use of an external medication being applied.


Yes it is something the vet instructed. She has a bruise on her left feet.




The vet also instructed a cream for Bebito, he has a little wound under his feet. The vet asked how did he use to sleep and I answer that he usually sleeps holding on the bars of the cage.

I feel pretty uncomfortable with this situation. I wish the vet hadn't drop ibi from the cage. Anyway it's done. Ibi is like a crystal princess and she hates to be touched in a vets check . She gets incredibly stressed . She was falling on her beak when she was jumping and getting excited so I stopped playing with her. On daylight I think I saw a bruise on her left feet and the vet by checking the photographs confirmed a bruise and suggest me to put her a cream but ibi gets scared and flies constantly till she opens her wings and start gasping. And I just tell her "ok baby let's forget about the cream".

So now I'm not sure about the cream cause it creates so much stress to her
Bebito is not a problem. He is so calm.
He has a wound. I will attach a picture.

Thanks for asking.
I'm giving some time to both of them.
Hate that this happened to me. Whatever happen to them really affect me because they are my babies and my happiness

This is Bebito feet



This is Ibi wound


Sometimes I think I'm exaggerating
People think I'm too intense and that I overworry too much
I just want them to be fine and happy

Ibi's leg should heal on its own if it stresses her out too much to put the cream on.

To help reduce inflammation, you can have her stand in room temperature chamomile tea as it will reduce the pain and swelling. If she won't, though, it's not a big deal and she should be fine.

As for Bebito, to me that looks like the beginnings of bumble foot. Do you have lots of different natural wood perches in his cage to ensure his feet are getting enough variety?

I hope the cream on his wound makes him feel better soon!

I can imagine it's very stressful trying to ensure your babies are healthy and happy, but keep up the good work!

You do not need to use a cream on the bruise on Ibi's foot.
Her foot is simply bruised and will heal just fine on it's own.
You don't need to be stressing her (and yourself) out trying to put cream on her as it isn't going to make a difference anyway.

I agree with Star - the wound on Bebito's foot looks like the beginning of bumblefoot.

It is important you have perches of varying diameters in the cage.

Make sure you read the information in the links below.
