Quaker Parrot seizure?
Recently my 12 year old quaker sort of slipped off his perch, his feet/toes were balled up like fists (so he couldn't perch), and was breathing heavy. By the time I got him to the vet (30 min later) he was fine. No unusual symptoms at all. Almost a week and a half later, another similer episode happened this evening. One of his feet balled up, so of course I immediately held him and stroked his little head to keep him calm...within 1-2 mintues he was fine.
The vet listened to his heart and lungs at the first visit and instructed me to bring him back for blood tests if it happened again.
Is this something common in quaker parrots? I am so scared of a brain tumor or stroke.
This little quaker gets TONS of attention, has a huge house (which 99% of the time he is never locked in), lots of healthy snacks, all kinds of toys....I'm just so worried!
