Lovebird having trouble pooping.

by Mary
(Lancaster, CA)

My little guy is 19 years old and has been pretty healthy until just recently. I have been noticing that he has been having trouble pooping - sometimes. He paces back and forth on his perch and squats but nothing comes out. He will do this 4 to 5 times before he can poop, but this is not all the time. He has also been slowing down a bit more recently and is not as active as he used to be.

Your bird may have a tumor causing problems, an avian vet can not help over the Internet. Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
