  • My parakeet is only using one leg. It looks like a claw on his right foot is twisted toward his foot. Can you help?

  • My Rouen duck is 3 or 4 years old, and she has a swollen belly. Can you please help?
  • My conure seems to be gasping for breath in the morning every now and then. No other sick symptoms. Is she okay?
