How to get help with your bird's health problems


The Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to bird related questions such as:


  • 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 rainbow lorikeet has been vomiting for 3 days now, but his behavior is still normal. Should I be worried?
  • 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?

Just be sure to have the following information ready when you request assistance:


  • The breed and age of your pet bird
  • Any and all symptoms you’ve noticed
  • Any recent changes in behavior

The Experts on JustAnswer are also available 24 hours a day. They will get back to you quickly, and if you need to take your bird to the vet’s office, they’ll let you know as soon as possible.
