Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Dr. Gregg and I will try to help you today. I see you are offline now so I will await your reply.
I'm confused. What should I reply to? Thank you for helping me and Hermosa out!
Sorry for the confusion. Hopefully you get this. Hermosa needs to be seen by a vet who is familiar with treating birds. I believe hermosa has had trouble passing eggs, in the past, and now has had one rupture in her. This can lead to serious problems pretty fast. You should get her in as soon as possible.
Dear Dr. Gregg,
My father doesn't want to lend me the money to see an avian vet nor drive us there. Can you tell me what kind of serious problems can develop so that I can persuade him to take Hermosa to see her vet? I am very worried about her. I hope that if I can tell my father the specific risks my poor cockatoo is facing that he will help us. Thank you.
Thank you so much. I pled with my father and showed him what you wrote, and he's agreed to lend me money and drive Hermosa and I to an avian vet as soon as possible. I am calling places in Greater Boston first thing in the morning. Hermosa is like my own baby to me, and you may have helped save her life.
