Female conure suffering with clostridium and polyuria?
(Port St. Lucie,florida)
Concerned about my female conure suffering with clostridium and polyuria after laying soft shell egg. My female 11 year old ...Conure laid her first egg last week on June 8. It was agonizing for her and the egg was Large..SOFT SHELL!
She struggled FROm 11 am until 8 pm without pooping, lots os straining and Finally laid this soft shell egg!
The next day my little Sunshine turned 11 years old on June 9! The droppings changed ...it is called polyureia. She now also has clostridium.
My vet has prescribed flagyl to treat the clostridium, calcium orally, and we put pedialyte into her water.
I am keeping her in the sun room with the heat on. The temp ranges from 83 to 86"
Her weight starts in the am at 110 but is difficult to go up during the day to her normal weight of 119.
She hovers about 113.
Her appetite is just ok!
My question to you is this...should there be more done with the loss of fluids??? I am very concerned that there will be some kidney damage.
Her urea le el was normal taken on Wednesday of this week.....the vet is hoping the polyuria is from the clostridium.....but not certain.
