Parakeet seems sick
My parakeet is sick...obviously so. She is fluffed and listless. She had feces stuck to the feathers near her vent. I gave her a warm shower and held her to my body heat until she dried. I took her from the other keets and offered her food which she picked at. I gave her antibiotics that I had gotten from the vet when my sun conure broke her wing a month ago. I also fed her a few drops of water with a syringe. It has been 12 hours since I noticed her ill, and I don't know what else to do for her. I understand that when a bird shows signs of illness that it is nearly too late to do anything. I have NO money. My previous vet bills have wiped me out and I don't start my new job until next week. No one I knows has money to lend and I don't have enough credit to get a loan. Is there anything I can do? What could be causing this? We just moved two weeks ago, so I know she is stressed as well. I have put Ornacyn in her water and fed that to her as well.
