Jardine digestion problem

My Jardine has been admitted to our local vet over the last four days, with some kind of digestion problem. He is eating constantly without getting full. When the problem arose, we noticed that his stools had changed in color from green to beige. He resorted to squawking constantly and was not himself. The vet has checked the stools for parasite infection, and all seems to be clear. Do you have any suggestions?

Jardine parrot with digestion problems
by: The Avian Vet

Parasites are very uncommon in parrots in fact I have never diagnosed a parrot with intestinal parasites. Have you had any blood work done, or x-rays or other diagnostics besides a fecal exam? The disease I would worry about most is Avian Bornavirus. However there are several other disease that can cause these symptoms. You should have some diagnostics done to determine the cause.
