    Has anyone ever had a bird with botulism? Did your bird recover? What steps did you take to treat them?

    I understand that the course of botulism is very rapid and there is no treatment, but I have had no experience with it. I recall reading posts about botulism on this site - have you searched botulism here? Perhaps you could find some information to help you while you wait for someone with experience with this condition to reply. Good luck to you!
