cockatiel not eating
by: Alex

This is an EMERGENCY. Your bird will starve by not eating or the illness may kill it first.

Birds die a lot quicker than larger animals (24 - 48 hours) and humans without sufficient nutrients as they are small and have fast metabolisms.

Due to their size they do not have a strong enougn immune system to fight most infections without medical treatment.

Very sick cockatiel
by: Tracie

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be. Your bird is very sick and nobody can help over the Internet.
