Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has Lucy been like this?

Is the "gum" tissue in her mouth pink or pale/white?

Does she have any wheezing, congestion, sneezing, or discharges from her eyes, nose, or throat?

When was she last wormed? Is she vaccinated?

Is she around other birds? How are they?

Can she eat or drink?
