lovebird lethargic

My lovebird seems very lethargic after getting his beak trimmed down at the vets yesterday. What could be wrong?

If the avian vet cut the beak back too much, then your bird is hurting. This has happened to me with my Amazons, and your bird will be better in a few days. Do not allow the avian vet to cut more than a bit over a quarter inch at a time. If the beak is overgrown, then it will just take longer to get it back to normal. It cannot be done all at once, so do not allow it to happen again.

I had to ask my avian vet not too cut too much, and he wanted to know why. I told him Stella was in pain for almost a week and it hurt when she tried to eat her pellets. It's like cutting one of our toe or finger nails into the quick and then having to use them. Your bird does not need pain meds for this as it gets better every day. I just recommend telling the avian vet not to cut too much and why.

You need to contact your avian vet that treated your bird. If something is wrong, your bird may not be alive by the time Dr B would read this.
