Diet for a lory with high blood sugar

by Carol Hodges
(Kitchener, Ontario, Canada)

My Rainbow Lorikeet just had blood work that showed him as having very high blood sugar.

I'm looking for an alternative nectar with less sugar. He's on Quiko at the moment.
Do you have a recommendation?
Which would be the best to use or would I increase the amount of water I mix it with?

Thanks

What does your vet say?

Please help The Vet by letting him know what your vet suggests and let him know if you took him to an Avian Vet.

Since your vet did the tests and knows your bird, he probably has a good idea of what is best for your bird. Dr. B does not mind giving you a second opinion though.
