Does my Indian Ringneck have a sore throat?
I have a Indian Ring neck she is about 8 or 9 years old. her voice is raspy, she doesn't whistle anymore, all she does is be at the bottom of her cage and sleep all fluffed up. I went to the vet but all they want to do is blood work and run her through a lot of tests and I just recently lost my job and I cant afford this one test is 700 dollars. she loves getting out of her cage and riding around with me, she will be ok for a bit but then she will go back to sleep or be fluffed. she doesn't have anything in her pouch of food, but she will eat some and will drink her water or pedialyte. she has lost weight I feel her lighter. what do you recommend? what can I give her meanwhile I get some money to take her to the vet?
