    Help! My conure was on my moms shoulder and picked off four of these metal thingies like little tin bling things while she was doing dishes I realized it and quickly found three, two of them were in the sink going down the drain so I think the missing fourth is down there too but I’m so scared he swallowed it!! What would you do?! He seems fine right now it’s only been a few minutes though! I’m so worried!!

    He probably didn't swallow it but monitor carefully. If you see any significant changes in behavior/activity level, changes in droppings or decreased appetite then take to the vet.

    @iamwhoiam thank you so much I really don’t think he ate one but on the off chance he did I’m so scared, I think I’m going to have to sleep in the living room to keep an eye on him tonight
