Parrotlet sudden falls
by Linda K
(East Brunswick NJ)
Hello-- 3 times over the past few months my parrotlet has had a flurry of wing noise followed by a fall to the bottom of his cage. He can't seem to get up afterward, just stays down.
Each time I scooped him up and held him for a few minutes. Upon returning to the cage, he sits still for 30 minutes or so, but then returns to eating, drinking and playing. The episodes have been about a month apart.
Is this a seizure of some sort? Is there anything I can do for him?
Thank you so much for any help and info you can offer.
