Macaw who is losing weight

by Gina

Hello, I have a year and a half year old b&g macaw. He was falling from his cage so I had taken him out of his large cage and put him in a small dogs cage. So he would fall to far and brake something. Sky hurt his left leg at the joint and has started loosing weight. We have started him on anti boiotics and he eats all the time. But no weight gain. He is very active but still isn't gaining weght!! I love my bird and am so afraid of loosing her! Please help if you have any ideas. Please help me save my bird!! Thank you

Macaw losing weight and falling

You need to get your bird in to see your avian vet ASAP! Nobody, not even Dr B, can diagnose or prescribe treatment over the Internet without seeing your bird in person.

If you do not have an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page. You must find an avian vet, regular dog/cat vets often kill birds during routine visits because of their lack of training and experience with exotic birds.
