Post: PLEASE HELP! My Conure is ILL.
Posted by Armando on 4/23/09
This is my first parrot. I've had him for just under a
year. His name is Sunshine. He has quite a personality. He
would step-up, and sit on your shoulder forever, but never
let you touch him (he would scream). He was very loud, but
I love him, and don't care much about the noise level.
Today I woke up, and he wasn't the same. He let me touch
him on his back, and continues to close his eyes and try
to fall asleep. He leaned back and I thought he was going
to die in my hands, but he quickly julted before his head
reached my fingers. The closest avian vet is over three
hours away, and very expensive, I believe he is closed for
the day, anyway.
Does anyone have some sort of advise at least to keep him
OK until tomorrow. I have other birds, and he is now in a
hospital cage with a heat lamp. I am stepping out now to
buy an anti-biotic.
Any advise would be much appreciated.
