I had not tried that yet, but I'm glad I took her in this afternoon. Turns out that she was just super mucus-y! The vet took a bunch of samples to verify parasites & to double check the mucus, but she surprised me & told me I was doing the right stuff. I was just winging it off the worms I knew she definitely had. The vet said it was probably because the nights have been drastically colder than the days & that she should get over the cough on her own.
From everything y'all have shared here, I felt pretty sure it wasn't respiratory (she was eating/active & the only bird coughing), but I wanted to be 100% again from everything y'all shared here. Should find out tomorrow what kind, if any, parasites she still has & it didn't cost anymore than when I take my dogs in for their check ups.
So, if anyone was looking for a bird vet in the Northglenn/Thornton/Westminster/Broomfield area, I would highly recommend Broomfield Vet Hospital. Staff was great, Dr. Miller was great & informative & even went out of her way to not stress out Richmond. Richmond wasn't all that pleased about the trip & Dalton had a toddler sized fit the entire time we were gone, but piece of mind that neither she nor the rest of my flock are passing along a respiratory infection.
Plus, I finally got a couple pictures of her! I haven't been able to get close ups since I bought them!
I'm so glad to see you posted about this clinic...I wound up going to Loveland to see Aspenwing and was quite happy. I almost called Broomfield. Good to know!
