Allergic to Harrison's?
Hello, I have written a few times in regards to problems I have been having with my Sun Conure (itching all over, constant stretching, sneezing, constantly tired during the day/not sleeping at night, wheezing after short flights, gas & bubbles in droppings) and my vet now suspects she may be allergic to Harrison's. I have been feeding it to her since early February and this is when these symptoms started. Could an allergy cause these symptoms and what could it be that she is allergic to? Should I stop feeding it to her and put her back on seeds? I don't know what to do. I was planning on taking her 8 hours away to a board certified vet in another province but now that we suspect it could be an allergy to the Harrison's I am thinking of putting the trip off.
Would it be safe to take her off the Harrison's for a couple weeks and see how she is doing before proceeding with taking her to the vet 8 hours away? Also in the Harrison's Handbook for a healthier pet they list the "adult lifetime mash" as a diet for bird potentially allergic to other ingredients. Do you think this is something worth trying? And if so what is the best way to feed it. If the mash doesn't seem to help what would you recommend I feed her as I don't want to feed her exclusively seeds. Thank you for any advice!
