Trip to the Avian Vet
by: Linda

I, and everyone else out here, agree with Traci. Please make an appointment with an Avian Vet as soon as is possible, so your bird can be examined, tested and given the proper medications to heal its body. Problem may also be due to an allergy either from incorrect feeding or something in the environment. An Avian Vet can help you with allergy problems too. They will want a complete history of your bird which includes foods, environment, caging and toys as well as other pets and children around them. Any other environmental questions can be asked and discussed at this time as well.

You cannot use any "under pressure canned" products around birds, chemicals of any kind including paint, nail polish and remover and/or hairspray. Cleaning products for the home need to be made from natural ingredients not harmful to you, bird or any other pet or children you have in the home. Birds can't eat table food off your plate as this kind of feeding leads to all manner of illness, poisoning and early death due to various ingredients, preservatives and fat in food humans eat. Processessed sugar is pure poison to birds, and too much of it at once or over a period of time will kill your bird.

Take a lesson from the bird world and give a hard look at what is used in your home environment making sure home is safe for them, other pets and your own children.

Now, you must get bird to Avian Vet without delay or risk the loss of your bird's life. Over the counter medicines including those sold at pet stores and supposedly made for birds are NEVER to be used. Until a qualified vet has made a diagnosis, you cannot be sure what is wrong with bird or how to treat.

Let us know what vet says, and we hope everything works out for the good of all concerned.

Rash and feather plucking
by: Tracie

The only way anyone can help your bird is for you to take the bird to an avian vet for an examination and tests. Please do this quickly, for your bird's sake.

If you try to treat an unknown problem, it is very likely your bird will continue to get worse and the over the counter remedies will cause more health problems in the process. Then when you finally take the bird to the vet, it is hard for them to determine treatment because your bird has so many problems from your administering the wrong treatments.
