    My 5 yr old female sun conure has been sick since 12/07
    she was originally diagnosed with an apparent heart attack
    and then a low grade infection since birth. She was given
    metacm, baytril, chloramphenical and recovered to about
    80% she then got pnuemonia in May 2008 and was given
    vibramycin. In Feb 2009 she was given baytril for possible
    respiratory problems. Now she has stopped eating and I
    feed her with a syringe and baby food. Her feathers are
    matted even after spraying her with bird spray. She doesnt
    retain her weight and wobbles when she walks and hides her
    head whenever possible. She has been given metacam, and
    other antiinflammatory injections plus antibiotics. She
    responds very slightly after the steroid injection.

    Does anyone have any advice or suggestions or know of a
    bird vet specialist in the Nrth NJ area. Please send any
    suggestions possible
