Have Bird Questions? Ask a Bird Specialist.
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Does she sound congested or wheezy?
Any coughing or sneezing?
Are her gums pink or pale/white?Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
This sounds like she is deteriorating after possibly being in respiratory distress. Therefore, just as in people, this is an emergency situation or may actually be her taking her final breaths. Therefore, since this is now at a stage where home care isn't going to be enough (which is why I am leaving this as a info request so you are not charged), I do have to warn you that she needs to be seen urgently. Just in case you do need an avian vet and do not have one already, you can check where you can find one at near you at AAV (http://www.aav.org/search/), Avian web(http://www.beautyofbirds.com/recommendedvets.htm) or Birdsnway(http://www.birdsnways.com/birds/vets.htm).
Please take care,
You are welcome,
Generally speaking, we'd not necessarily have to unless we were concerned she had a notifiable disease (ie bird flu) though we have to be aware that if she had a respiratory infection then other birds in your flock could be at risk. So, we'd want to keep a close eye on everyone else.
You are welcome.
