22 y/o goose - bleeding internally?
I heard my 22 y/o male goose make a couple of high-pitched honks this morning, so I went out to look. He was sitting and fairly passive (not usual for him), and while I was petting him, he shook his head and a few drops of watered-down blood came out of the inside of his beak. I tried to open his beak to see what was going on inside his mouth, but his muscles are still too strong.
As I kept petting him, I noticed that the edges of his beak would get water there, like he was over-salivating.
About a month ago, I saw that the top of his beak had "old age" spots on them (for lack of a better phrase).
Otherwise, he seemed fine... hasn't changed a bit in 22 yrs. We should all age so well.
I'm thinking that there's something going on internally. Anyone have a similar experience?
