Customer Question
He is sleeping alot...

He is sleeping alot, noticed him vomiting a clear liquid. he seem to be drinking a lot. only seems to have been this way for the last 4-6 hours

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the bird?

Hes a 12 month old cockatiel

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

When you say vomiting I presume that you mean regurgitating?

This is usually due to an infection in the crop- fungal or bacterial

I would recommend that you take him in for an exam and crop wash for cytology and culture.

Okay?
Paul
