Ask a Bird Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks ever so much for your advice. It sounds spot on. I have an avian vet not too far away from me so i will book an appointment tomorrow and tell them what you have said. I gave Sebastian some steam therapy there and seemed to actually enjoy it. One of his buddys joined in to. He gaped a bit afterwards but no sqeaking with it so hopefully it helped unblock his sinuses a little, the poor soul. I have bought him rusk to mix with his egg food and vitamin/mineral drops for his water. I will order up the Healx booster asap. Fingers crossed my wee friend can be saved. I really appreciate your help and advice. Diana.
I took Sebastian to an avain vet and they checked him over and agreed it was upper respiratory although he wasn't as bad as over the weekend. I think the steam therapy worked a treat. He issued me antibiotics to put in his water every day for a week and he is in a seperate cage for a while.I asked if my other two birds should be given the antibiotic treatment just in case and he said no if they seem fine. My question to you is do you agree with this advice?
Hi Dr Dan, Sebastian much better, he is eating like a horse and i noticed today that his poops are bigger in size. i have not heard him make squeaky noise since Wednesday. I will keep an eye on my other two just in case they show any symtoms in coming weeks and whisk them off to avian vet if they do. Thanks ever so much for your diagnosis and advice, i am ever so grateful. Diana.
