Cockatiel sounds raspy

by Jasper

Hello, My white faced cockatiel sounds weird this morning. She is on some medicine we give her every 12 hours. She is on milk thistle, baytril, calcium, meta am and doxy. She usually gives a hard time to take the meds and ends up spitting it out or sneezing it out through her nose.

Usually after taking the medicine she is raspy for an hour. However, we woke up this morning and she was still raspy. Should I be concerned? Or chalk it up as her ingesting the medicine in the wrong pipe and she will be alright in 24hrs? Please advise!

You need to call your avian vet ASAP, and tell them what is going on. Dr B sometimes doesn't answer questions for weeks, due to his busy teaching and clinic schedule.
