Get him to an avain vet now!!
by: Christina

Hello. Your bird is very sick and if you don't get him to an avain vet in the next day or two he could die. Birds go downhill VERY quickly, dont do what I did and wait a day or two more see what happens- my bird died a few years ago when I did what you are doing and waited a few days before I took him to the avain vet. My bird had exactly the same symptoms that your bird does and I took too long to take him to the avian vet and he died. The avian vet said if I had come earlier he would have got better.

Sick bird needs a vet
by: Tracie

He is sick, as you said, and needs to be seen by an avian vet. Nobody can tell you over the Internet what is wrong, not even Dr B. Sorry.

Your bird really has to be seen in person and tests run to find out what is wrong and what the exact treatment is that will make him better.
