We have an African Grey that is now 14 years old. Quite a talker and loves to sing and whistle. For four days, doesn't talk, whislte or sing and then on Monday he threw up his water so we took him to an Exotic Bird Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida.
They did Xrays on him and blood work and said that his Liver and Kidneys are fine. They do see a "dark" spot in front of his heart and tomorrow they are going to do an upper GI on him. They, also, said that his stomach seems to be swollen.
I'm wondering what would cause his stomach to swell up like this? Could he have a Bacterial Infection of some sort. We did board him for one week in January while we went to a doll show, but, we always board him at the place we took him to. The Bird Hospital is, also, giving him injections of Antibiotics daily.
He does seem to be thinner than the picture that I have attached to this question.
Can you please help?
