my baby macaw can't squak
Mo Jo was given to us out of a neglectful home. He has shown lots of progress over the last week as far as walking and talking to me. He really listens and tries to talk.
Sunday morning he woke up and not only can he not stand up but he can't squak. He makes all the motions and tries to but nothing but what i call a whisper comes out. We did take him to the only bird vet in the area and is on antibiotics for a respitory infection. The vet we talked to said he was not trying to squak, he was gasping for air but my husband and i do not agree because he is following the same pattern of squaking as before but only a whisper comes out. (and he does not do it when he is tired or sleeping)
I guess my question would be is have you got another opinion of why Mo Jo fell silent? Maybe the local vet will take another opinion if i offer one. It has been a lot quieter at the house but i know something is wrong.
