35 year old Yellow Nape Amazon Parrot
(Fort Lauderdale, FL USA)
My 35 year old Yellow Nape passed away today.
Just recently within the past 5-8 months he seen the vet for upper infection, told the vet he was throwing up all the time but she said he lived his life expectancy and then some as he lost weight and now when she was not here was away I rushed him to a new vet as i cound him on the bottome of his cage just laying there, gasping.
I fed him everyday, even today, he had scrambled eggs etc. plus his food, he always ate everything but while eating he would regurgatate his food.
The vet today said that he died because of not eating. However he was eating but would just jerk his head and it would come out all the time.
Can you tell me what you think caused his throwing up? Or is that part of being his age and possible complications with some other issue?
