Have Bird Questions? Ask a Bird Specialist.
HI this is DRB and I would recommend that you take your Baby to an avian vet.....not a regular vet. But do be aware that cockatiel's only live 15-20 years in captivity unfortunately. Having said that there may be something an avian vet can do to give her another year of good life. Mind you a visit to a vet that does not have avian experience will not help you so make sure to find an exotic vet that works with birds. If you need help locating someone I can help with that if you let me know the town you live in or near. A larger city would be helpful since many exotic vets are in urban areas. If you would like my assistance with that simply leave your info here and I will get back to you. I check my computer every night and will get back to you tomorrow night. Sincerely, DRB
Please hit rate my service as that is the only way I am compensated. Thank you very much!
Oh, and no I don't think your bird picked this up from you......although birds can carry psittacosis which humans can get. Let me know if I can help you further. DRB
Please let me know if I can be of additional help to you. feel free to leave any questions you may have here or of you would like here of if you would like me to help you locate a proper vet. Sincerely, DRB
