Post: Cockatiel w/seizure or convulsions ?
Posted by Beth on 8/18/07
A friend of mine brought a 2 yr. old cockatiel to me. When
she arrived with the bird, it was in some sort of seizure,
fit or convulsion. It's body would jerk at regular
My friend supposed that the bird had injured a leg on the
trip. (She said it had flapped around and screamed during
the transport.) It occurred to me that it may have been
having a panic attach, heart attack, heat stroke or
After about 1 1/2 hours, the fits stopped, but the bird was
very quiet and seemed quite listless. At one time I
thought it was dead. My friend decided that she couldn't
part with the bird, so she took it back home. I never
thought it would never live through the night, but it did.
Anyway, it seems to be recovering from whatever the attack
was. I am just trying to figure out what on earth
happened! Anyone experience something like this?
