(Fort lauderdale, FL)
We had a sunconure who died early hours of the morning on Feb 10, 2010. Last night she seemed to suffer seizure like twitching. She would scream when going through the severe twitching. Once the episode was over she would constantly twitch her head and make little squeaks. She was very weak and if she did stand, she seemed to favor one leg. Eventually, she could not stand and just laid completely down.
My husband searched frantically for a 24 hour animal hospital that took birds but there was none that was opened. We put her in a shoe box, and wrapped her has gently as possible. It was very devastating to watch her suffer. We had her for 10 years. The second year we had her she had suffered from aspergillosis which she was treated for. What could have caused her death? It breaks my heart to have seen her suffer and not know what caused it.
I also, have eclectus which will be nine years old in April.
