Enlarged Liver and Heart in a Blue and Gold Macaw
(Chesapeake, VA, USA)
My 8 year old Blue and Gold macaw started showing illness symptoms that we couldn't pinpoint.
Sneezing, runny nose, difficulty breathing and vomiting (NOT regurgitating).
We brought him to an avian vet and shortly afterwards, he passed away. The autopsy found an enlarged heart and liver.
I've researched any disease that might have caused this - I have an African Grey and want to prevent any problems like this in the future. Have you heard of anything like this in a bird?
Thank you in advance for any guidance.
