    Please help! Respiratory and sinus confusion

    I have been sick all week with a sinus infection/ or respiratory infection. I'm not sure, the doctor mentioned both so I think I have it all.

    Possibly sick?

    My parakeet has been having poop stuck to his vent for almost a week. It started off as diharrea, which was a one night only thing. He started to lose more feathers since yesterday (2/7) and I have to bribe him with millet now to get on my hand, which never happened when I initially got him. My...

    Budgie not eating- Sad Update Post #19

    My budgie Doug is about 1 year old. He has scissor beak but it has never hindered his eating, he's always been a pretty healthy weight, and active. He is on a seed diet, I know it isn't ideal but I got him from a pet shop where that's all they fed him and he absolutely refuses to change to...

    Weakness and Baytril

    Hello, All! One of my parakeets has been sick for months. When I took him to the vet back in March he was almost as good as dead. I kept him there hospitalized for 5 days, then took him home. From there I kept him warm in the cage with his companion. He eventually got better! He was strong, he...

    My new 3 month old cockatiel which I got yesterday is puffed up on a perch not doing much of anything. My room is 75F and she seems pretty sleepy. I haven't seen her drink or eat any of the millet or bird seed in her cage. Her droppings seem a little liquidy though otherwise normal. The only...

    Urgent Parrotlet symptoms

    I have a 3 year old parrotlet and yesterday I noticed his poop was a clear liquid. Today I had him out and he pooped again, and it was pure liquid. Then I put him on me about 2 minutes later and he pooped again. This worries me for a few reasons. One, the consistency of his poop. Also the volume...

    Sunflower (a 3mo GCC) had been a little off today. She seems a extra clumsy this afternoon (she is normally an adorable klutz). Her poos have also been extra watery. They look normal except for the excess water. She also seems to be angry with my husband. He went to work today for the first time...
