Omg i have NEVER heard of alkaseltzer on a bird! I think thats a huge NO NO... i raised lovebirds for sometime and when one of the chicks had slow crop all i did was WAIT until he emptied the crop on his own. Didnt needed to put a needle on his crop or anything like that.ok so, we had already tried not feeding him much and we noticed he not only didn't empty but he also stopped pooping and actually left a small blood stain where his butt was. We fed him after this then a while later found out about "sour/impacted crop". When we checked back on him he was back to pooping again, and we began to empty his crop with a tube attached to a syringe. We emptied about 95% of his crop then fed him cause he was going crazy for food before and after his crop was emptied. I've heard about giving him stuff like alka seltzer after emptying the crop which we found out about after we had fed him for the night. What should we do now that his crop was emptied / if he doesn't empty the new food from his crop over the night? Is there a risk of not having emptied the 5% or less of food that was still left in his crop?
Thanks all for the help.
