Post: Need Help / Prozac for Brids?

    Hi Everyone,

    I took my Quaker Willow to the Vet this week because she’s
    been plucking herself, her legs are totally bare. At first
    I thought she was molting but this has been going on for a
    long time. She does it at night after I cover her up, in
    the morning I pick up like a half cup of small feathers.

    I have done the chamomile and aloe vera and it was helping
    at the beginning but she continues to pluck.

    I need some advice, the Vet wants to put Willow on Prozac.
    I have never seen this topic discussed on this board and
    I’m concerned because I don’t want to see her change in any
    way.
    She’s a lively, active fun bird and I have this picture of
    her becoming distraught and zombie like if I allowed the
    treatment.
    The vet says is for four months and there are no side
    effects, but then he said he will wean her off of it. Does
    that means she can become addicted? Please help me on
    this, has anyone’s bird ever been on Prozac. Thank you all.
