The quaker parrot 3 y.o. removes a lot of feathers from legs belly and chest. He is itching really bad. We drove him to the vet and had bloodwork done. Here are the results: AST 319 // BA 35 // CK 2024 // UA 9.8 // GLU 436 // CA 7.8 // PHOS 0.2 // TP 3.4 // ALD 2.9 // GLOB 0.5 // K+ 3.9 // NA+ 146 // QC Ok // HEM 2+ Lip 0 ICT 0 and his weight is 115g. The vet did not tell us anything meaningful, he told us to change the diet. Can you give us any advice concerning this problem?
