Lovebird has weak legs (Sad update #6)

My Sunny is a 9 years old love bird. On Monday night I noticed she was quieter than usual. She was unable to stand on her legs. They won’t hold her up. Her legs go out to the side. I took her to the vet on Tuesday morning. She said that she isn’t egg bound and that she thought she may have fallen and hurt herself. Both legs move when she pulls herself along by her beak. One claw will open up more than the other. She is eating, drinking, and wants to play. So she isn’t acting sick. The doctor gave her Eloxioral and a antibiotic shot. She really didn’t give me much info as she said that maybe giving her a few days it will get better. Any ideas?

I hope things start to get better soon. Was the vet an AV or a furry critter vet?

It looks like that's another brand name for Metacam, which I agree is the treatment of choice in this case. Does she have any other symptoms? Is she eating/drinking okay? I would make sure you have a scale and are monitoring weight. I would probably consider xrays as the next diagnostic.

She passed away last night at 11:38. Leaves a big hole in my heart. I definitely will be getting another bird as she was so much company to me.
thanks!
