My conure has just pooped and her urates are yellow
The vet suspects she has liver disease but this has not happened in the past in fact this is the first time
Does this warrant a visit to the vet??

@Mizzely is the poop expert. Hopefully she can help you.
Have you changed your birds diet and are they eating okay?

Why does the vet think she has liver disease? Did he give you anything for it? I would call your vet and tell him/her about the yellow urates or see if you can send him a picture. There are avian milk thistle supplements that can be helpful for liver disease.

If your vet is already suspecting liver issues, I would be calling them. download.png 01bb64_e596cb3aa4ee48d19b07166c1bc9de87_mv2.jpg
