M.C Bird Rescue
HMM. now I question the salt. If the blood work came back fine..but would they check a sodium level? They check for heavy metal, but do they check for sodium regularly?I learned about salt many years ago when I had some problems with very aggressive cockatiel parents that were pluckers of the babies. And also adults that were plucking themselves so bad they were self-mutilating themselves. Adding a salt spool (the brown one with minerals for hamsters) Eliminated these problems. Some of my early prolase problems with tiels was a combination of a sodium defeciency and lack of proper lighting. When birds passed whole seed, and tests showed that it was not a bacterial or yeast problem, first I would give acidopholus (sp) and then boil rice in lightly salted water, and use this water, 50/50 mixed with their drinking water, and this resolved the passing of whole foods and seeds.
Also...PPD is not the only disease that can cause improperly dugested food. Megabactia can also cause this.
