Hello there,

You are through to Dr Coles, I am a UK based vet.

I am really sorry to hear about your parrot. You must take your parrot to an emergency vet now, if he has any chance of surviving. Parrots are very good at hiding symptoms of illness. They do not show any signs of sickness until they are critically ill. There are many different things which could be going on including infection, kidney problems, liver problems. You need to put him somewhere warm, quiet and padded (with towels/blankets) and offer him small amounts of some of his favourite foods. I would also put some water close by to him and try and get him to take some in by placing this on your fingers. It is crucial that you take him to a vet tonight. He has been sick all day.

Kind regards

Dr Coles
