Green Cheek Conure Runny Droppings Sneezing
So basically, my precious green cheek conure named Marcus Junior whom I love more than anything in the world has been sneezing lately so I took him to the vet today. About a month ago, my dusky conure had a sinus infection and was sneezing but he is better now due to some antibiotics.
My green cheek was also put on precautionary antibiotics during this time though he showed absolutely no sings of illness or strange behavior.
Now it is about a month later and I noticed yesterday he started sneezing so I immediately took him to my vet this afternoon. The vet took a look at his sinuses, vital signs, etc. and said he seems to be fine and then took a throat culture to send in to the lab for testing. Then, my vet injected my green cheek with an intramuscular antibiotic. He also gave me a vial of oral antibiotics I have to syringe in Marcus Junior's mouth twice everyday for about two weeks.
My vet then took a look at the droppings in Marcus Junior's cage and said that they should not be staining his wood chips green and that maybe my baby has liver disease or a liver infection. Marcus Junior is about 2 and a half years old and has been on Harrisons pellets/seeds as well as fresh fruits and veggies as his diet. After his shot, he also was acting a little weird, tired, and somewhat disoriented. This was earlier today.
Now its about 2 in the morning and I just checked on Marcus Junior and he came out of his cage happy and chirpy and played with me :). Basically as I am anxiously awaiting the results of the culture I had a few questions. First, since he is sneezing more than often, can the runny droppings possibly be from the sinus infection, or do they absolutely point to liver disease? The droppings are a typical green color, and not really runny but tend to have a wetness to them that can be seen when the poop is excreted onto a paper towel. I hadn't really paid attention to his droppings before so I have no clue whether this is normal for him.
Also, was it normal for him to act so out of it after the vets office? He has been a little quieter and sleepy than usual in the past two days, hence the vet visit, but my dusky conure was the same way before he was treated with antibiotics for the sinus infection.
I am just really concerned, and cant sleep at all at this point. He is sleeping in my room with me tonight and I have the room very hot with a humidifier by his cage. Worst case scenario can my baby get liver surgery? I live in a small town and there is only one avian vet within driving distance, but I am willing to go anywhere and do anything for my baby to be ok. Thanks so much.
