Brown Scab On Nostrils

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

My budgie has some scab over his/her nostrils half of it has fallen off.

 

But the half that still remains is covering the nostril hole and i am abit concerned that it could be something more serious.

 

I really would liike to know if anybody else has come across this before and what it is or whats causing it.

 

Here are some pictures i took

 

Thank You in Advance.

I'd be concerned that it's nasal discharge, and a sign of infection.

 

I just finished a round of antibiotics with Twitter. At his follow up vet check she said he was doing really good. He was tested for Chlamydiosis, results negative. She forgot to request the test for French Moult, but the lab still has the swabs, and should have the results tomorrow.

 

Good luck with your little one. I hope it's nothing serious.

pictures aren't helping as the bird is fuzzy. However it is normal for a hen losing breeding condition to shed her cere and it can fall off in patches. The cere underneath can be a pale blue to white colour. Some hens can have a lot of build up on there ceres others a thin layer.

 

Please provide clear pictures.

"However it is normal for a hen losing breeding condition to shed her cere and it can fall off in patches. The cere underneath can be a pale blue to white colour. Some hens can have a lot of build up on there ceres others a thin layer." that is what *Nerwen* posted.

 

i agree with most of it But from the picture showed a pink colour under the brown layer and as u said it is normally pale blue to a white colour. might be wrong but it would be easier if there were better pictures.

 

"I'd be concerned that it's nasal discharge, and a sign of infection." that is what ima.snowbird posted and i also agree with that.

 

have u check it with a vet after u do so tell us what happened.

 

best of luck.

Hi,

 

Thank you all so much for your replys.

 

The pictures aint that good quality as taken on my phone.

 

Here are some more pictures i have taken today with a camera just cant get the light in the room but hope you can make more of it from these pictures.

 

I have had my bird tweety for over 8 years never had one single problem with her/him but this scab has been there for months sometimes there will hardly be anything there and sometimes there's a lot or it looks like it has swollen.

 

This is the first time half of it as dropped off in the left side as you can see from the pictures it was pinky color yesterday when it dropped off but today its looking pretty normal but i am just concerned that there's one half there and one half gone.

 

She is very cheerful and can not spot any signs off ill health and every time i walk in to the room she jumps off her perch and on to the side of the cage bars for a kiss and hangs upside down for a kiss

 

Will take her/him to the vet on Friday just to be on the safe side.

 

Here are the new pictures i have uploaded

 

Again thank you in advance for your advice.
