baby tiel with stretched crop
(Bear Creek, PA. USA)
I have a 18 day old baby tiel, that I pulled the night before last to handfeed. When I went to feed him yesterday morning, his crop was still full, so I gave him just some water with acv in it, and waited for a few hours. He was pooping normally BTW. His crop wasn't hard, it felt soft, but full. by late yesterday afternoon, he still wasn't emptying, so I called our local vet and took him over.He did some tests.. No yeast or no bacteria..
He said his crop was stretched, and emptied him out, and put a crop bra on him. He also told me only pedialyte until this am, and then only 5 cc's of very thin formula, and to wait for him to empty again before feeding a second feeding.. well now his poops are black, with very little urates and pretty solid looking. I tried to contact the vet, but he is out of the office until Tuesday, and hes the only vet that does birds within 50 miles of us. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
