Cockatoo excessive drinking
by: The Vet

This could be caused by many different diseases: for example a virus called Avian Bornavirus causing PDD; kidney disease (infection, or other); etc. You need to get this bird to an avian veterinarian immediately.

Sick Bird

Your Dad's bird could be experiencing kidney failure unless he has been fed salty food of any kind which can cause kidney failure. They cannot digest the kinds of foods we eat.

I think you all need to get him to an Avian vet immediately as he may be going into kidney failure or having some major problem in that area. Please call an Avian vet in your area and say that this is an emergency and take bird on in as soon as you can get there. The symptoms you describe sound like a major kidney problem and kidney failure unless he is treated immediately is a possibility.Just tell the vet's office that you believe he may be either going into or already in kidney failure.
