Customer Question

i have a spectacled parrotlet that was diagnosed by an avian vet to have epilepsy. He's seizing now and nobody in my city will inject him with valium because they won't accept the liability. Is there anything i could give him orally to stop the seizures? i got my old vet 4000 miles away to fax a prescription for oral valium but due to the time of day it can't be filled until tomorrow.

Greetings, I am Dr. Pat. I have worked with birds for many years. I will do my best to help you.
I am sorry no other expert has taken your question. We all come online at different times, I have just logged in and saw that you have not been answered. I hope I can still be of assistance.
Is he doing ok? Did you have the prescription filled?
I will opt out so your preferred expert can answer, but please respond if you still need help.
