Thanks all, we have him booked in on saturday as this is the earliest we can get there! Will keep you updated. Only saving grace is it doesn't seem to be bothering him, he doesn't try to get to it or seem less like himself, he's currently scoffing some millet quite happily so at least it's not impacting him too much - that we can tell! Hopefully if the vet can do anything it will help take anything he is feeling from this away!

Good luck!! One thing I do recommend before getting to the vet is to apply for care credit online. It's a medical credit card that vets, eye doctors, and dentists all accept. It will definitely help if there is an expensive procedure the Dr recommends. I always keep my card handy for any animal related emergencies.

Joey is home, and looking at us with great disdain! The vet managed to get hold of him in a towel - queue lots of screaming from Joey. Had a good look while an assistant held him. The lump was some type of clump of feathers and scab and crust which came away when she was looking, she said it could either be caused by a tumour or a feather cyst that have been growing a while but can't really tell. She cleaned the wound up - he has quite a big open fleshy wound on his back now where the lump was but he seems to have recovered from the vet quite well and is back to his normal self at the moment.

She gave us some antibiotics, pain relief and some vitamins as he possibly has a vitamin a deficiency - doesn't like any fruit of veg!

We are now working at getting them into him! He wont go near the syringe at all, so now trying to put it on some food to eat it, but have yet to find something he will eat with it on lol

Going back in 2 weeks time to check how it heals up which will be the key!

Thanks for the update. It looks like he will be fine, which is great news!

You might have to towel him to dose him. Did she show you how to give him the meds? I'm so glad they were able to see him and get a good look at it.

She didn't show us but the amount of stress he was in after he was finally back in his cage i'm not sure it's worth doing it to dose him. She said most birds bite on the syringe but Joey just runs away lol

But after trying to put the drugs on all his favorite foods and him not touching any we have found he eats it on the last thing we had to try - millet! So thankfully we can get some drugs into him at least!

Thanks for all your help you guys!
