    I've been posting threads and forums the past couple of days about our parakeet with sudden tail bobbing and signs of respiratory illness.

    Because she's one of the dustiest species on earth, I try to give Kamara a good misting at least daily to help keep her dander in check. Until recently she's tolerated her gentle showers, but as of a couple days ago, she has decided that the spray bottle is Satan incarnate. She has also...

    Urgent Wholistic Advice Wanted for Sick Budgie

    I have an all-white female budgie named Snowy who has been very sick for about two weeks now. We took her to the vet as soon as we noticed something was not right. She was fluffed up and kept nodding off even upon getting her out of the cage. Her poop had been looking a bit yellow for the...
