Thank you for thisYes @faislaq, many times a change in voice can indicate Aspergillosis, but there are other things as well. The last time Hank had a change in voice, it wasn't Asper at all it was a MRSA infection in his throat. Took four months to cure that one and it is a serious infection. The thing with Asper is that the spores are around everywhere all of the time and i's only when there is a great increase in them or your bird's immune system is suppressed ha it can take hold. So it doesn't have to be something from years ago, but it could be.
Just make sure that your vet checks for Asper - I will guarantee that you don't want to deal with a serious case. Many times it is deadly, but there are much better medications than the times Hank and Jasper had it.
Please read this, so you will have some understanding and know what questions to aske.
Aspergillosis is a fungal infection that commonly causes respiratory disease in pet birds. It can cause both upper (nose, sinuses, eye, and trachea) and lower (lungs and air sacs – a specialized part of the respiratory tract that birds have) respiratory problems or more broadly distributed...vcahospitals.com
Be aware that it is HARD to diagnose, so don't let your vet stop at the first step, unless he is very, very sure.
One of our vaporizers is in the room with their day cage & another is in our bedroom with the night cages. We run them 24/7. The display says 28% right now, but the weather station we have inside always reads much higher. It's predicting rain right now.Awww, Puffin! I hope everything will be OK! How is the humidity in your home? Is it very dry right now?
My hygrometers aren't what I would consider precise either, lol! But I have noticed that if they read below 30%, then Jelly Bean starts bobbing his tail and squeaks when he lands.One of our vaporizers is in the room with their day cage & another is in our bedroom with the night cages.

I'd like to add some F10 to them but I have no idea where to find it.
