I know one of the vets in the photos. She was studying veterinary medicine at the same time I was. She works at the animal hospital I phoned, but I didn't talk to her I talked to another one which is the most experienced one with birds.
Jacob's been sleeping since he drank the oatmeal broth this morning. He's lying on his toy shelf, with his head tucked under his wing. Which I didn't see him do yesterday, he would just stand with his eyes closed. So that's an improvement. I got aloe vera and slippery elm in the pharmacy. I mixed acv and aloe in his drinking water and made the apple sauce mix with harrisons, slippery elm and echinacea. I placed the bowls next to him but he wasn't interested and continued sleeping. So he hasn't drunk any of the acv yet. I will call the vet if Jacob takes a turn to the worse. Right now he seems to be on the mends. The vet told me yesterday that he would take a few days to recover and normally there is no need for antibiotics. If he is not doing better on monday then she felt we should start giving antibiotics.Hi, you will need to watch what he eats and drinks after the ACV. A few drops in oatmeal is good, 5 drops in 100ml of water to start. If he likes it you can do a few more drops. You can also mix 1 tsp per pint of water.
He needs to keep the food and water down for the ACV to work, have him drink small amounts at a time. The ACV will help should there be yeast or sour food in his crop and will also change the PH in his GI tract.
Please call the avian vet and discuss what we have been telling you. Ask the vet about Sub-Q fluids and antibiotics if needed. Is there a person where you live that breeds or rehabs birds?
