14 yr old parakeet no longer flies
Hi, my old 14 yr old best pal keety is in excellent health, but over the last year or two he began flying less and less--in distance and height, until he is unable to even fly arm's length-- and able to climb up on cage less, too. This was a gradual change...
I am wondering if it is old age arthritis..? as his wings look perfect, he has good appetite, same weight all his life...and a happy chirper but a bit quieter.. I am wondering if there is a supplement to aid his situation...
I'm having much trouble the last few years in finding much info about AGING parakeets! :)
Thank you so much for any insight and advice. I have taken Tweet to the vet a few times but there is no avian knowledge, really, and live hours away from a specialist --plus am not able to afford now. We grew old together, ha.
