Sun Conure Died

My Friends Sun Conure, Tiki, died today. She was sitting in her loft when she heard a thump. She went into her room, where Tiki lives, she saw him on the bottom of his cage flopping around, like he was having a seizure or something. Then some clear fluid started oozing from his eyes and nose. He was only about 7 and was a healthy bird as far as we all know. Does anyone know what could have caused this?

Dr B can not answer this, because he did not examine the bird after it died. You would need to take the bird for a necropsy to find out why it died.

I am sorry this happened, it is very hard to lose a bird you love.

Many things can cause seizures, it is best to take birds to see an avian vet every year for a check up and vaccinations. Also, a healthy pellet diet, like Harrison's is important. My first bird got fatty liver disease because I did not know about pellets.
