My Jenday conure sneezing

by benazir

In the place where I live, there is no avian vet and i do not trust other vets because those vets were not able to save 4 of my birds. So i dont wanna approach them. There is no blood work or scan done for a bird in my country. i have 5 parrots. out of which 1 is sneezing since yest. it does sneeze once in a while usually. But since yest, I have noticed a lot of sneezing. She is active at some time of the day and some time she is quiet. I do not see any discharge from here cere. Nor any change in here apetite. Her droppings are normal. I did not notice any breathing noise as well.

she is a jenday conure 2 and half years old. A healthy bird and wings are not clipped. None of my birds are caged. can it be a infection or a foreign body gone into her cere. Pls do not ask me to consult a vet. Coz the vets here are useless. without even touchin a bird, they prescribe baytril. so, I cannot trust them and give my bird to them for a nasal flush. tell me what can i do to cure her if she is sick. And i am not sure if she is moulting. I see her scratching and preening a lot. its just 2 days of sneezing. Will she be normal again on her own. I need sincere advise.

Keep it warm
by: Sultana Zamani

I read about your bird sneezing, and as you
say you don't trust Vets, then just try and
keep the bird warm, maybe just a cold.

I have two ring-neck parrots, one is almost 9 years old and the other is about 18 - 19 years old.

They too sneeze and then get Ok by themselves. I have never taken them to a Vet at all.

I am from India, Pune I am very fond
of my birds, and very concerned about other
birds too.

Hope your bird gets well soon.

Don't want to take sick bird to a vet
by: Tracie

I get the impression that you think the avian vet will not answer sick bird questions because he doesn't want to answer them. This is not the case at all. Dr B can NOT legally give medical advice over the Internet. I will honor that you do not want to take your birds to a vet.

The other suggestion would be to call an experienced breeder in your area, one that takes very good care of their birds. They likely have experience caring for sick birds and may actually know of a good vet for your bird.
