URGENT sun conure uterus protruded
by Jyoti Desai
(Navsari, Gujarat, India)
I have a pair of sun conure aged 20 male and 22 female, an african Grey 19 year old, a blue front amazon 21 yr old and a cockatiel 1 year old. We were in New York City until 5 years back when we moved the birds to India and we also spend the majority of time in India as we are retired. They were exported from USA and imported in India also legally against an Import License and they were the first legal shipment of exotic parrots in India.
My female sun conure has never laid any eggs - within last 1 and a half months her uterus came out from rectum area 3 times and again today within abt 10 days. First 2 times a vet pushed it back inside and last 2 times I had to do it. She eats normal but when the uterus is out you can see that she is not comfortble.
We never had this problem ever before. All my birds have been in very good health since last 19 years they are with me. They eat cooked rice with nuts and tutti fruity, Indian bread, corn and rice flakes, Almond, oat cereals and glucose buiscuits on daily basis. They alll drink water and Mango drink during the day and in the afternoon as well as at night they all take mango pulp as they all love it. Since last abt 4 days I have started mixing a teaspoon of pediatric multivitamin and multimineral liquid in abt a cup of the mango drink otherwise they will not have it. I don't know what to do.
I am very worried abt the female. I think she is old now. An expert Avian vet in Mumbai, India who is now on her honeymoon suggested I give her an antibiotic and vitamins and suggested to keep the male and female apart the entire day except at night time as they share the same cage which also I was doing since a week ago. but today it happened again this morning. I cleaned her first with an iodine 5% and then pushed it back inside again.
I will very much appreciate if you can help me with any suggestions to cure her of this problem.She has been a sweetheart all these years and do not want to lose her. I love all my birds a lot and they are my life.
Thanking you in advance for your help in the matter.
