As i was cleaning my cage today, i noticed my Snow white begin very jittery, so i picked her up and noticed she was having trouble breathing, and then i turned her upsidedown and realized she has a bald spot on her stomache with some sort of growth on it. What can i do for her? We dont have the money to take her to a vet or anything like that, i wrapped her up to keep her warm, but im clueless as what to do about it and I am very scared:(

uhhhhh.. could it be that she fell and punctured her chest. its really hard to make out what that is due to the pic being blury.. but just this year i had couple of experiences with the grownth's on my pigeons.. turned out it was ingrown feather.. and with one that had a puncture wound . once it healed it just looked messed up.. guess their scabs look a lot differnt than ours do.. it freaked me out.. i pulled the scab right ut of his chest..
now a lot of people were suggestiong it might be temporary tumor..
do u have any antibiotics on hand.
have u tried cleaning the wound.
it might not be tumor.. think positive

That wound looks very nasty. You won't find any antibiotics at a pet store. The little dove really does need to be evaluated by a vet or you may loose her and undoubtedly she is in pain. Borrow the money or put it on a credit card if you need to. I think you'll regret it if you don't help her.

Don't feel pressured to take it to the vet if it is outside your means. Unfortunatly I don't have any advice apart from this but hopefully someone else has something constructive to say
