Take him to the avian vet NOW!!!
by: Christina

Hello. My bird had that and then he was dead within a few days. You need to take your bird to an avain vet right now. What my bird had was a bacterial infection that went to his kidneys and that made his feet not work. If I had taken him to the avian vet right away he could have given him antibiotics and saved him

Same issue
by: Linda

Hi, recently had the same thing happen to my Amazon - he has severe gout it causes the feet to freeze plus it attacks the kidneys - very serious. There are other posts on this website about a variety things to do for the bird. But see the vet first to diagnosis - a
blood test really tells what's going on with your bird and its cheap. I also just asked about any suggestions about what to do now that I know its gout - plus my bird lost a lot of weight (but he didn't look any different to me) but underneath the feathers he's skin and bones the doctor says. Good luck.

Meyers Parrot foot problems
by: Tracie

Please take your bird to an avian vet ASAP. Your bird needs medical attention quick. If you don't have an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page. There are some listed on the page that were suggested by readers and there are links at the top of the page too.
