African Gray - stinky poop & sometimes diarrhea
My gray is 15, happy not stressed and on pretty bird pellets (Originally on Nupreem, which made me suspicious so I switched). Once a year over the last 2 years she gets smelly poop and occasional diarrhea. The first time after she started showing sign of illness in addition to these other symptoms, I took her to an avian vet. Blood and fecal tests came back normal. Still sickly I tried some over the counter liquid which claimed to have a mild antibiotic in it and she improved. I informed the vet and they gave me some antibotics which cleared everything up. The following year it started again, antibiotics cleared it up but she was not on it for as long.
Now it's happening again. I can't afford to spend $500 plus each time to take her to the vet just for antibiotics. Have you ever heard of this? What can I do? Please I need help.
