Hi im chris im very sorry to here about your baby macaw yesterday my baby macaw who was only 4 had died i still cant stop thinking about him he was fine until i moved then he started loosing weight and his colors werent as bright and he wasnt as active i didnt have the money for the vet but at this point i would do anything to bring him back noone knows how importan he was there like little children his name was sammy i wish i could just forget about it but i miss him so much now but what really bothers me is a bird that is supposed to live to be 100 dies all the sudden so early and the hard part is i have had him since he was born i was lucky to have him brand new and not handed down i guess thats whats so hard about loosing him.

B&G macaw died
by: Tracie

I am sorry for your loss. Unfortunately Dr B can not tell you why your bird died. The only way to tell would be if you had taken your bird to an avian vet for a necropsy.

There are so many things in our houses that are toxic to birds, it could be that it chewed, licked or breathed something toxic. Also, if your bird was eating human food, instead of pellets, it could have died from a chemical in the food.
