Very sick lorikeet
by: The Avian Vet

I am sorry but, as stated on the page where you typed your question, Dr B can not help with sick birds that need a vet. He sometimes doesn't answer for days and your bird might be dead by then.

You need to find a 24 hour clinic if your personal vet is closed. Your vet should have an emergency number for their patients to call even if it isn't their phone number.
