I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish.

Do you still need help? If so, may I have an update on your parrotlet, please? It's unclear to me if he became shocky and tachycardic (rapid heart rate) and then syncopal (fainted) or you've lost him.
