Worried about my bird - I'm worried she has something caught in her throat - 1st time she has been out of pen
What can I do to help her?
Open her mouth and look inside.
I ended up moving out food little by little with my finger inching it up her throat & wiping it out with the back flat smooth side of tweezers. I thought there may have been an acorn or something at bottom of food but there was just some dry food - I think she may have eaten too much at once & did not have enough saliva to help it go down. She seems to be acting normally?
Kath and all, he's still with us this morning and looks no worse, no better than yesterday.
He actually peeked at some of the bread I put in there cage, but he didn't eat anything.
I will dose the other 1/2 of the 1g pack of Safe-guard this afternoon.
ok, I just went out and gave him his second days dose of Safe-Guard and just from my observation he seamed to have lots more energy today than yesterday. He kicked and he moved his neck a lot more than yesterday fighting with me to get his mouth open.
we put him on the scales and he came in at 4.7lbs.
I saw him poop shortly after we put him back down and it looked about like the same has I was putting into him, white and runny.
that's all from today
White poop can indicate dehydration and possibly coccidiosis. Is he eating or drinking anything?
I took out a handful of their favorite food, kitten bits and he was interested in it and ate 10-20 pieces, I also saw him drinking some water earlier
At least he ate something
That's good news.
