No Avian Specialist

What does one do when there is no specialist for a parakeet? I know my parakeet is dangerously ill with a lame foot, sleeping on the bottom of the cage, puffed up feathers, change in droppings, etc. I've moved him to an aquarium away from the female who kept pecking at him. Food and water close by. I don't know what else to do. I have fed my birds nothing but Harrison's, leafy greens and carrots.

Please look at our list and also the links on this page. I am sure there is an avian vet within driving distance. If not, then take the bird to a regular vet. Call a breeder in your area and ask who they use.

I sure hope everything works out for you and your bird.
