Hi, this is Dr Jeanne Smith.  I'll do my best to help you with home care suggestions and advice for the best course of action.  Does it appear he opens his beak to breathe? Is his chest moving more with each breath or tail dipping down with each breath?
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
No the opening his mouth it is as if there is something in his mouth that he is trying to get out.

Sorry I was with a client when you requested the phone call.  Do you want to try now?
