    Burnt food

    Hey guys! Hope you all are well. I'm just a bit concerned because my roommate had burned some rice in a non-stick pan & it smoked up the entire kitchen. My room is right next to the kitchen & although the door is closed, it still smells a little bit in my room. Should I be concerned about my...

    Crackling sound while breathing? (Sad update #7)

    My cat got a hold of a sparrow. When I found it it had a single puncture wound on its back and blood on its nostrils. I believe it also has a broken wing. It makes a strange 'crackling' sound, kind of like gently scrunching a plastic bag, every couple seconds. It doesn't match the frequency of...

    Gasoline smell

    I just moved to a place next to a gas station, not even thinking about it. And I woke up to the smell of gasoline at 5am. The trucks come and refill the station everyday it seems. Most days I don't smell anything at all, and I've lived here for a couple of months. Today however it was so bad it...

    The Unusual Pet Vets - 'Gromits irritated sinuses

    I thought this was very interesting -- that a foreign object lodged in the choana was triggering respiratory issues. Hmm, sorry about that title, it was supposed to be, "The Unusual Pet Vets - Gromit's Irritated Sinuses".

    Recurring plaque in back of oral and nasal cavity. Anyone experiencing anything similar?

    Hi, my avian vet can not figure out why this whitish plaque keeps growing in the back of my sun conure's oral cavity bordering on the nasal cavity. As it builds up, her breathing becomes labored and I can hear it. The vet has sedated her now 4 or 5 times to clean it out and it keeps coming...

    I can't function, all i think about is our potentially sick budgie.

    I've been posting threads and forums the past couple of days about our parakeet with sudden tail bobbing and signs of respiratory illness. My parents are practically impossible to talk into going to the vet. But I'm so stressed out by the idea of him struggling and us doing nothing to help him...
