    Tiels Nasal block

    Pecan, my female cockatiel has been sneezing a lot. Most of of them time when she had just woken up. Her nostrils seems to be blocked, and when she breathes you can hear sort of a rumble from her along with her body sort of swaying. Not sure wether this is normal or not. Should I bring her to a vet?

    Blood in stool

    My meyer parrot got stuck to the vacuum cleaner by her chest and right after that she dropped a normal poop with drops of blood on the side? It seemed like too much of a coincidence for her to suddenly poop blood right after that accident. She is acting the same as usual, but the last 2 poops...

    Can birds get covid?

    I tested positive for Covid-19 this morning. I been seeing mixed answers if birds can get COVID-19 or not. Does anyone know if I can spend COVID-19 to my cockatiel? If birds can’t get COVID-19, can some people give me tips how to entertain my bird while we quarantine in a room?

    Tido's bald spot

    Our Alexandrine parrot has developed a bald spot near the left eye which has been growing rapidly. Same type of bald spot has shown near his right eye as well. His beak is shedding too. We tried applying anti bacterial and anti fungal creams but they did not show much effect. Could it be mites?

    My Baby Conure Squints his Eyes. Is he sick or tired??

    I noticed that sometimes when he eats his food he looks like he’s squinting or slowly closing his eyes. I don’t believe he is sick because there are no other signs.
