Customer Question
She is sneezing, runny...

She is sneezing, runny "nose"

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the bird's name and age?

Hey hey, 6 months?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the bird's name?

Hey hey

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the bird?

She was caught in the Harvey flood water and rain. We keep her as dry as we could but 50" of rain and 4 foot flood waters did not help

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

How long has she had these signs?

What color is her nasal discharge? From one or both nares?

Any appetite loss, paling of the inside of her mouth, or coughing?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

What Customers are Saying:

Thank you so much!!! I love this service. It has given me peace of mind and extremely valuable information at an affordable price 24/7 to care for my beloved pets. THANK YOU

LindaCenterreach, NY

I found my experience with you to be very positive. Not only did the vet answer my question thoroughly, he left me with a better knowledge to follow up with my vet.

MarilouEast Taunton, MA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!

AlexLos Angeles, CA

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.
