    URGENT: Pepper threw up. He appears to be doing fine, but it wasn't regurgitation. He is active. I've given him the electrolyte solution, I'm going to post in Parrot First Aid Facebook group. There isn't a certified Avian veterinarian within four hours of us, and the conditions are too dangerous for us to drive there. I've given him a heating pad, and I'm trying to remain calm. I'm so scared, please help. This is him now.

    He's only vomited once so far so try not to stress out or be scared. How is he acting otherwise? Keep his cage covered on 3 sides and only put the heating pad over or under 1/2 - 3/4 of the cage. He looks a bit fluffed in the photo but that could be due to his being upset from the vomiting. Did he vomit food or just liquid? Is he perching? Is he interacting with you? Hope he will be OK.

    Okay, will do. His vomit had whole seeds in it, yeas he is perching, but he isn't tame so he expectedly isn't interacting with me. His poops are healthy as well.

    Monitor him closely and make sure he is eating and drinking enough. You can always bring him to a regular vet who is knowledgeable about birds or call an avian vet to see what recommendations he/she might have.
