Cockatto's left foot seems to go limp at times
We have a 10 year old male Goffins Cockatoo, Iggy, who has always been very healthy and boisterous. Recently, there are times when, for no apparent reason, he loses his balance and will fall off of his cage or wherever he is perched. When this happens, his left foot goes limp or he curls his toes completely together so he is just perching on the one right foot. Also, his left wing seems to involuntarily stretch all the way out. These episodes only last about 10 seconds, and they happen maybe two or three times per day. Sometimes when he is having an episode, he seems to not be able to see out of his left eye.
I am worried that he might be having seizures, however, I am not sure that there is anything that a vet can do, since birds are so delicate they are often not medicated unless it is for an infection or some such thing. I hesitate to bring him to a vet since the last time I took him to see a vet several years ago, the experience stresses him out so much.
Please advise. Thank you,
