YOUR BIRD IS HAVING A LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCY! PLEASE CALL AN AVIAN VET IN YOUR AREA IMMEDIATELY AND TAKE HER IN AS AN EMERGENCY. Being scared does not cause them to gasp for air. My Amazons will breathe hard after vet has trimmed their nails and beaks, but breathing gets right back to normal in a matter of a minute or less.

If you bought your bird from a pet store, she may have been ill from the beginning. It is always a good idea to take new birds to Avian vet immediately to check for bacterial infections. They have been around a lot of birds while in store, and are under a great deal of stress for the entire process including coming into a new home with you.

Please get your bird to an Avian vet ASAP as her life may depend on how fast you get this done.
