Ask a Bird Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Could you tell me how long ago the blood test for lead poisoning was performed? Were any other blood tests run at the same time? Any changes to droppings/appetite/water intake?
Ok. I would probably want to run a more comprehensive set of blood tests initially, especially to look at possible liver or kidney disease and evidence of infections. It is possible the lab may still have some of the blood left (they usually keep it a week or so) so may be able to request additional tests, otherwise a new sample would be required which could be combined with a full examination of your bird to look for other health concerns.
I hope that answers your question, please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
