sick african grey
(El Cajon, CA)
I took my parrot in on september 18th because she really wasn't eating much and not talking at all. She also was weak and sleeping alot during the day-something she NEVER does. The vet put her on Timentin for 10 days po and an antifungal im injection for 7 days-last dose given this morning. The vet did cxray, cbc, liver panel think that's it, all labs were wnl except for low wbcs'.
I'm just worried because although she is eating much better she's still weak and not talking. I'm not sure if she's improving or getting worse...very hard to tell right now. After we give her the meds also she appears to be off balance for a bit maybe 10-20 seconds. The cxray was clear only thing the liver was smaller than normal? Well, any input you have would be greatly appreciated, today is Sept 24, 2009 and I'm just not sure what to do now, thanks Mary
