Please help!
I am unsure if am emergency vet trip is needed.
My cockatiel seems to be straining to poop and urates look off. Vent looks swollen and winks after pooping. On a diet of pellets, avian cakes, dried Karen veggies ans fresh veggies. I have pictures attached of poo and vent area. Acting perfectly normal happy singing cuddling eating drinking.

Baylee had a similar case when she was egg bound turned out the egg she had was broken and her poop had lots of bubbles in it due to an infection caused by the broken egg.
So yes I would take the Tiel to the vet right away.

I was thinking maybe an egg too, but whatever is going on it seems a vet visit would be in order. I hope your bird will be okay!

Girl? Young, I know, but could be Eggies in there,..can you feel the area? A couple days before the eggie, itll be soft and swollen... If you feel a hard bump, then theres an egg coming soon..may take a day or two to come out, but,,I always say, when in doubt, call your vet.. keep baby warm and hydrated..hoping for the best!
