However, I can't help but feel we have gotten lucky too many times and that one day we are going to cut into the quick. I don't want her to be uncomfortable after the trimming of that nail, or if it prods into her foot.
Anyone have any idea how much this would cost at an avian vet? I would just like an estimate just so I have an idea of what I'm going into. I could continue the frequent trimmings, she doesn't seem to mind them.. but since I have started to trim and file her other nails, I would just be making that special trip for that one nail.
Would it throw her off balance? Does it seem excessive? Is there a greater risk than potential benefit?

Of course, consulting with an avian vet could give you better information as I am just an owner and previously worked in a pet store. There are also other more experienced and knowledgeable owners on the forum, and I'd be interested to hear their replies as well.

An in office Vet consultation could be pricey. A phone call, and/or Email w/pics are free.
