Blood comes out of mouth and nose and it dies.

by Pooja

I have some parakeets. Today I saw one parakeet was sitting in its pot and not moving. Checking it closely, i found it dead. Blood was all over its mouth and was flowing down. It was all healthy till yesterday and I dont know what happened to it. Please tell me its reason if it is contagious and should i take some precautions for rest of my birds?

Sorry for your loss
by: Alex

I am sorry for your loss, but NO, DO NOT give your birds any type of medicine as you have no idea what is wrong. You should not give ANY medicines or supplements that have not been prescribed by an avian vet. You should not even give anything a pet shop suggests.

You need to get your birds seen to as soon as possible, as the same could happen to them.

The symptoms you found on your dead bird are concerning, so do not delay.

I hope your birds survive.

Thanks for your question.

You know, actually bird must have died a long time before because smell was coming from it due to which we had to bury it, as i have no other option, should i give some medicines to them? I have aa bottle of vitamin drops and an ointment for wounds.

Yes, you will need to take the rest of your birds to an Avian Vet because this was either a disease, infection or poisoning. The only way to tell for sure is to take the dead bird for a necropsy, and the bodies have to be taken in quickly before tissue deteriorates which begins immediately.Bodies can be stored in refrigerator but need to be taken to an avian vet within 24 hours of bird's death to get accurate answers to what killed the bird.

Find an Avian Vet for your birds and have them tested for both bacterial and viral infections and have some bloodwork done on each of them because virus' will be found in the blood as will some kind of poison.
