Puffed Parakeet
by: Anonymous

My parakeet puffed up today and within hours he dropped dead off his perch. What could have caused this?

Editor's note: Take the bird to an avian vet for a necropsy to find out. Also, please post your questions as new questions, not as an answer to other questions.

Correction:
Please call a vet that works with BIRDS as soon as you can.
Having swollen eyes that are shut is enough to be considered and emergency.

Take to avain vet asap
by: Tracie

Please take your bird to an avain vet asap, if the bird is still alive.

We ask that people not post emergency situations or problems that need a vet's in person attention. The bird may die before the vet gets back with you and then he can't treat the bird because you are not in his office.

I hope all goes well for your bird.

Get Him to a vet if its not to late. It sounds like he has internal injuries.
