    Hammy my Amazon is looking well, he is eating well, but every so often he has a clear discharge from one of his nostrils, what could be causing this?

    This discharge could be caused by a number of things, best to take him to an Avian Vet. If you don't know of one near(ish) you, pm me, and I'll look on the Vet List, as I don't know where (what county) you're in.

    Your nearest Avian Vet appears to be Bruce Maclean, Herp Vet Svcs, c/o Iffley Vets, OX4 1EA, 07754 125302. It could be just a minor infection, or lack of vitamin A or ... I'd take him to the vet asap. Good luck.

    That looks like good news! Can you let me have the details of your vet so I could see if suitable to add to the vet list, please. Harrisons pellets are ok, but there are lots of makes of pellet to try. Not all birds take to Harrisons. Come to that, not all birds take to pellets.

    I get meds into birds on a teaspoon, mixed with baby food, you know, the kind you would buy for a baby to begin weaning. I buy from Tesco, it comes in a pouch, all different flavours, is resealable, and lives in the fridge. Hold the handle of the teaspoon, and offer the bowl with your mixture in it. Only 1/4 or at most 1/2 a teaspoon. You could use Ambrosia Creamed Rice, or porage, or anything sloppy. My birds get a nut at bedtime. I've been known to put drops on a favourite nut. Most antibiotics for birds taste pleasant, so shouldn't be a huge problem. Good luck.
