    While I was trimming my pet doves beak, I accidentally made it bleed. There was a lot of blood, but I got it to clot with a tissue. I trimmed the tip of his lower beak. Apparently, it was enough to make it bleed. He seems fine now, and I think it's clotted, but is there anything else I should...

    Update- We were able to get the little one to a rehab vet this morning. I think his poor eye may have burst on impact (it didn't look like a globe anymore, just flat). He was MUCH more alert this morning and he was taken to the rehab vet along with a donation for it's care. Thanks so much for...

  4. Illnesses & Health Issues - Identify & Treat
    Hi! I recently got my first ringneck dove, I've had her for about two weeks. In that time, she's been a little bit sneezy. They're very dry sneezes, no discharge, and she hasn't been showing any other symptoms of illness. She tends to puff up when she's perched and preening, but whenever she's...

    Hi friends. Last night I let my dove out when I got home. He was in the kitchen for 1 minute before I shoo'd him out (I don't let him in there.) I'm not sure if this happened before or when he was in the kitchen -but he has a "wet" spot or stain on his head. I've tried to wipe it off multiple...

    Hi Birdists, I've been searching the web everywhere, and possibly asking the wrong questions. Cosmo has a band on his right leg and I can't figure out how to interpret it. All this time I've been assuming he is a ring-necked dove, but all I know for sure is that he is a dove. Here is a...

    Hello all, hate to be back to the sick/injured section, but here I am. My dove, Tofu, had a prolapsed cloaca back in mid-late July of this year, which she recovered from. At that time the vet took an x-ray and shows she had possible enlarged uterus. Then back around Sept 10th, I took her to...
  8. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all, I'm still having trouble with Cosmo's diet after about four years. He has always eaten seeds that I found have a good price (for my feeble budget,) have a good mix of what I've read here, and are the right size for him. It's a cockatiel mix but I assume there's flexibility there. {I...

    she's even afraid of them and starts panicking I've heard here on the forum they make great treats for doves so i thought she would like them but i was wrong. Any other treats i can give her that she might like? Here's a video of her before she broke her wing and leg due to being very weak...

    I got a pair of diamond doves about a week ago and they've been settling in well. However, they've been making an odd sound, almost like a frog croak. This is my first time keeping birds so I thought it was just a noise they make, but I'm starting to get concerned. Usually their coos sound...

    Hello, A little over a week ago, I found this injured dove in my backyard. Completely unable to fly. I brought him in my house and kept him in a cardboard box with food and water for a few days. He looked to be healing as he was trying to fly around my house. The other day I attempted to...

    My dove broke its wing and leg last year, she was rehabilitated at the vet, and survived. She doesn't fly but walks slowly and sometimes flaps her wings to go where she wants to go. Some days ago i noticed something on her back and above the leg she broke, its like a malformation, or maybe a...

    About one-and-a-half week ago my now 35 day old Eurasian collared dove enthusiastically broke one of her joints on her 2nd flight. To us humans it looks like the knee but it's actually her ankle. It was a Saturday so only very few vets were open, and I quickly went to the vet who was. He put me...

    I have a sweet 21 day old collared dove fledgling and it's chest looks like its crop has a parting of some kind. I don't think I've overfed it. It kind of looks like a split or long dimple, like it has boobs or a front bum :) I have not found anything about this online. The bird behaves...
  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there, My cousin accidently hit a bird with a frisbee yesterday and asked for help releasing it. It was struck by a frisbee from the air and crows started trying to attack, so my cousin decided to take it home before deciding what to do. Upon attempted release it could not fly more than a...

My 5 month old Ringneck, Baby, sometimes has lots of clear liquid in her poops, with the solid part being a normal brown. this mostly happens in the mornings, when we are both starting...

    My diamond dove regurgitated his seed last week (whole) and has been trying to do the same today. However, he is having trouble actually regurgitating it seems? He will do the motions but nothing will come out. I called the vet a few minutes when he started doing it, right before they closed...

    My female dove Afonso is 10 years old, she has been with me since i bought her when she was still a little baby. She doesn't have a male and yes she is a female (laid eggs multiple times). She is very attached to me but she doesn't like my brother. She bites him hard in the eyes, nose and ears...

    Hi, On saturday late evening I was taking my dog for a small walk (Italy here, total lockdown, only essential movements allowed). In the middle of the street I found a Collared Dove with an injured wing, she could not fly, did not have bleeding injuries but a well visible calcification on the...
