Sad in Illinois

by Stephanie

My 15 year old cockatiel passed away last yesterday. Her droppings had been runny, she acted tired, dizzy at times, and one tail feather from her tail I noticed has grown out curled from underneath. I kept putting it off because she gone through similar times like this before but always pulled out of it. I am beating myself about wondering if this was something she could have pulled through with vet care being 15 years old. Please answer my question?

Sick bird died
by: Tracie

Probably, but there is no telling what was wrong. The bird was likely suffering from something for a long time, since you said she had gone through this before. You can't treat what you don't know is wrong, an avian vet visit is a must when a bird shows signs of sickness.

For future reference, here is our Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird, so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
