Has he been eating more vegetables than usual? That can add extra liquid to their stools.

Stress is also a big cause of polyurea. So is bathing. One of my budgies has had it since he was 4 months old, yet he's completely healthy.
So sickness is not always the cause but if you can't pinpoint a cause and you're worried it'll be good to get a vet's opinion.

Nothing had changed that would make this happen I’m not sure what the vet can do I won’t allow a blood draw he had a clear gram stain maybe a urine analysis you said your bird has had this Sind 4 months ? Isn’t dangerous to poop out so much liquid.

Considering giving mil thistle/ dandelion root incase it’s the liver. But I believe the. Dandelion root is a. Fire tic and will make him pee more considering starting a course. Of probiotics

That is the cause. You are giving him a diuretic.

Of course the extra work for his kidneys can have some long-term effect, but the vet can't find any reason for it. I can't restrict his water, thet would be unkind to him and the rest of the flick. There is a medication he can have, but that would have other more serious side effects used long-term. Lesser of two evils.

Of course you can’t. Restrict it unless you jo what’s. Causing. It , since. I refused to take blood froom my guy we are trying to do a urine analysis. But when I brought him in of course he was not having any increased urine, so they gave me a syringe and a. Collection tube with hopes I can collect. A sample, if I cann the only option would. Be. To give. Sub q. Fluids so it’s easier to collect, but that. May dilute. The sample
