Timneh Parrot Seizure\Stroke
We have a timneh parrot that is about 27 years old. Tulla has always been in good health, and there have been no change to her environment or diet recently.
6 days ago Tulla began screaching loudly and fell from her perch. She seem dazed and had lost co-ordination. The episode lasted about 3 or 4 minutes and was repeated about 4 times over a 2 hour period.
I contacted my local vet and was invited down the evening surgery. However my attempts to place her in a transport box only seemed to cause her more stress. I honestly thought she would not survive the ordeal so returned her to her cage.
Although there were no more episodes over the next 2 days she was growing weaker despite still feeding. Her co-ordination was poor and her ability move about her cage was greatly deminished.
By day 3 she was so exhausted she was unable to roost. I improvised a bowl holder into a makeshift platform, and she sat on it in a nesting position.
By day 4 she seemed to be a little more alert, and although still weak, was making attempts to move about. She is currently alert and enjoying a lot of TLC from all of the family.
Has Tulla experienced a seizure or stroke and realistically how likely is it she can recover?
Is there anything else we can do?
