Conure sudden death
(Ludlow, Mass. USA)
My 2 year old conure was happy and appeared normal and healthy, then suddenly went into her cage and started having respiratory distress. She died within 10 minutes. The only thing different in her environment was that I had bought and feed her a new kind of papaya (which she loved!!).
This food was purchased at a pet store and was for birds. She had had some on Saturday morning, then again Sunday morning and was dead by Sunday night. Could this have somehow been toxic for her? Should I notify the place where I bought it in case there is something wrong with this product? Is there any way I can find out for sure what happened to her?
