I'm pretty sure my cheek is dehydrated. It seems he stopped

Customer Question

I'm pretty sure my green cheek is dehydrated. It seems he stopped up his water bottle for a couple of days. I live hours away from any vet that does emergency avian. He's taken water from a syringe often. I have no other liquids to give at the moment. He was terribly lethargic , but is now flapping his wings sporadically.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. It could be an infection. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the bird's name and age?
Customer: Kiwi, I'm uncertain of age.
JA: How old is Kiwi?
Customer: ...I don't know exactly. Possibly 1-2?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Kiwi?
Customer: He won't eat currently

I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with a special interest in bird health. I'm sorry to hear of this incident. I hope Kiwi has returned to normal by now, but if he hasn't, let me know what symptoms he is now exhibiting, and I'll try to help. Thank you.
