Customer Question

Hi i have a pet princess parrot he vomited up full seed yesterday and today he is bringing up like a clear mucus he is fluffed up. I have him in his cage and keeping him warm i am at a loss what to do for him. He ate a little bit of tomato before he started getting sick i am not to sure that is what has made him sick. Would appreciate any help. Regards Faith.

Good evening Faith, My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian that sees a lot of avian species. A few questions,

1. Has he been around other birds recently or are there other birds in the house? Does he go outside?

2. Does he eat fresh fruit, veggies, or proteins?

3. Has he eaten any foreign objects, like toys or towels, etc?

4. is he willing to eat and drink or is he not interested in food?

5. Are his poops normal or runny?
