Newly Adopted Severe Macaw has liver disease
(Valparaiso, IN )
I am so upset.. I just adopted a 4 year old severe macaw and I took him to the Vet (cause he was very underweight) to have the whole set of blood work that they do on birds.. and most came back ok... except the liver enzyme.. should of been around the range of 600, his was 3000. So they called me and told me he had severe liver disease.. started him on milk thistle.. they also said that the liver damage is possibly reversable to some degree. If there is anyone out there that knows or has information about liver disease... any advice...etc.. PLEASE let me know...
Thanks again so much!
PS I also started him on a natural pellet diet.. no seeds.. tons of fruits, veggies and healthy people food like potatoes..no butter, rice... sweet potates, pasta, etc
