Dusky Lory Disorientated and screaming after riding in car
by Charlene Juedes
I take my Dusky Lory to get his nails clipped every 6 months. I put him in a small animal carrier. After riding in the car for about 20 minutes, I bring him into the pet store and he becomes disorientated, starts shaking, and falls down and starts screaming. The same thing happened after I brought him home. After a few minutes, he was back to normal. This experience is very traumatic to me, I think he is going to die every time it happens. Is it possible that he is motion sick or dizzy from the car ride? Any suggestions on how to remedy this situation? Has anyone else had this happen when transporting a bird in the car?
