    Note: There is a TLDR at the bottom if you wish to skim or not read everything, but the details are important. Hello everyone. I am sad to say that Kiwi is not doing so great. I noticed on Sunday that she was not as active and as fluffed up as she normally would be. Birds really do act fine...

    Urgent What’s wrong with my lovebird

    Hi, I took my lovebird to the vet yesterday to check on her frequent regurgitation, they did a fecal gram stain and it was clean. They did blood work but I have yet to receive the results, I asked for a crop swab but the vet didn’t want to resort to that just yet out of fear of the risks. Last...

    Hello everyone. My lovebird is having some issues again. So previously my lovebird has a lot of bubbles and vomits whenever he wakes up. So we went to the vet, did all the tests and I gave him nystatin. Somehow, he just recovered while we are waiting for the crop and fiscal test. The crop test...

    Urgent Vomiting Cockatiel (Sad update post #8)

    Rhodie is a 4-month old normal grey and she's only been home for a month. (She has not been DNA tested, so she could be he.) She was fine Sunday, maybe just a little less vocal and active, but nothing major. I woke up Monday morning to see that she had thrown up throughout the night and there...

    Budgie looks like she wants to vomit, but doesn't?

    A few weeks ago, my budgie Tro vomited and the vet said it might just be a tummy upset, but to come back again in a week if she continues vomitting. Tro got prescribed some antibiotics and anti-vommiting medicine and she never vomitted again after that. But I noticed that what she'd do is she...

    Cockatiel vomiting

    My girl cockatiel has been vomiting on and off. I usually take her to a certified avian vet who is two hours away, but I was out of money and took her to a local vet who sees birds. He performed a gram stain and said she had a bacterial infection and put her on amoxicillin. I looked it up and...

    Urgent Vomiting

    I called the closest 24 hour avian vet and they said to monitor her overnight and bring her to the doctor in the morning. The 24hr clinic is over an hour away which is a stressful trip. Her regular doctor is down the street. We are staying up with her, but it's driving me crazy. Any advice or...

    My 9-month-old parrotlet, Porkchop, has been with me for 4 months. He sometimes stands on top of his cage, throws up at absolutely nothing, then briefly becomes aggressive and lunges at me if I go near him. I'm not certain if he is vomiting or regurgitating. He's not looking at a toy or at me...
