    ever since i got Happy, my female cockatiel, her tail was bobbing.
    i got her about a year and a half ago, took her to a vet who identified a bound egg and treated her. i was thankful she came through the ordeal alive and because the vet said she was back to peak health i did not seek further advice.

    a few months later i moved to a different city and took the birds to a new vet who gave them a check up and said they were in perfect health. i did not mention the tail bobbing.

    so now, a year after that check up i'm taking them in for another check up with a new vet. i was too embarrassed to ask about the tail bob after two vets told me my birds were healthy but this time i will press the issue.

    i feel very guilty about not addressing this sooner but i also didn't want to question the certified vet's opinion.
    however, with this new vet i made the appointment with this issue as first priority and general check up second. i hope everything goes well.

    I hope the visit goes well! One of my tiels has always had a slight tail bob, but two vets have said there is nothing wrong with her, so hopefully it’s the same with your little girl. It’s okay to question the advice of vets and doctors, and they shouldn’t get offended, so never worry about that.

    The most important thing is that you will be making the visit...you don't have to feel guilty about anything.

    Hoping everything goes well tomorrow...

    Hi everyone :)
    The vet visit went really well.
    I told the vet about the tail bobbing and he said that because she's had it for this long, and she doesn't show any other symptoms it should be fine.
    He felt her belly and didn't feel an egg.
    Looked at her vent to see that it's clean and not inflamed.
    Checked inside her mouth.
    He explained to me that because of all that and because she doesn't breath with her mouth open she should be fine.
    He will call for a check up in a few days and told me to just keep an eye on her to see that it doesn't get any worse.

    Also they fed each other while he was looking them over so I guess they really wanted to show him they were in peak health :rolleyes:

    I'm so happy she's healthy!
