    Re: Help!!!! my cockatiel broke his neck :(

    How is your bird, Taylor? Did you get him to the vet? Did it go all right?

    We are all concerned about how your bird made out at the vet. Please let us know how your bird is doing.

    If your bird is still being handfeed, on top of having a broken neck, you really might reconsider going to the conference..

    Re: Help!!!! my cockatiel broke his neck :(

    ya well i tookthe bird to the vet here and i left off beleaving he was in good hands. the vet was on the phone so i left him because i was obligated to go and i did not feed him that morning in case they needed to do something and food would make it difficult so they were going to feed him. but i sent a family member by to check on him and it was like 5 hours later and he had done nothing! he was not fed. they took the blanket off of his cage so he got so cold he was almost dead. so i got my family member to take care of him and she did a great job. i got home today and he is doing great. he is already flying again and walking normal just not quite as chordinated but i beleve that will come. I am really happy to see him and see he is doing so much better but am still furious at that vet.

    If he had a broken neck then he would not be alive. Take him to another vet to be checked out. I hate that this bird has suffered for this long with this injury. It is not right!

    Re: Help!!!! my cockatiel broke his neck :(

    I have talked to the avary specialist at the Fort Worth Zoo and he says that if this bird is still alive and is progessing his neck is not broken. He is moving easily and is starting to eat seed and drink out of a bowl easily which he has never done before. He also does not hold his head or act abnormaly at all. I belive he just had a concussion and now that i look at it the symptoms fit. I do not think buzz is suffering.

    sorry guys for the late reply i was unable to reach a computer. and i thank all of you for your concern and help.

    I think it would still be best to maybe take him to a vet. I understand that you already did, and contacted someone at the zoo, however they can not visually see the bird through the phone. Be safe, don't be sorry!


    Good Luck!

    If something happened to my birds that would be what I would do...call the zoo.

    I can understand your being furious with this vet!!

    Poor Buzz. If I were you, I'll look for another avian vet and have Buzz checked out. It's great that he's drinking and eating and flying, but you never know -- just to make sure everything is OK.
