    Arrow sick bird???? PLEASE HELP!!!

    OH MY GOD!! My baby, my Armani is looking sick!!
    MY GIORGO ARMANI IS SICK!!!
    Not the brand! My bird is also called Giorgo Armani!!
    Armani has like a wet face when I saw him a second ago and he's all puffed up with his beak towards the ceiling!! I think he's sick!!
    Armani puffs and huddles but he doesn't really stay on the same spot. He does hang out with the others but it looks like he's always asleep.

    If he's sick then you need to get him to an avian vet ASAP. You can't wait with birds because they hide their illnesses until it's pretty bad.

    The only person who can tell you what's going on is an avian vet, so i'm glad your mum is taking Armani to see one. I've got my fingers crossed that he's ok. It sounds bad though..

    Oh my God!!
    I really don't want to jinx it! I'm feelin' euphoria and it isn't because of drugs. Just guess! I'm happy!!


    Oh and, the vet didn't help at all. They offered to inject him with some drug so that he would die instantly. **Sobs** Hell no would I ever do that to my baby!!!

    I've ha a canary die and a baby cockatiel. It usually takes less than 48 hours. Once mine started showing signs of debilitation it was only a matter of time here. Hope you have different results.

    I hope Armani is doing better. I wanted to just mention that on a message board like this, no one can diagnose an illness. If a bird is exhibiting signs such as lethargy, puffing up, sleeping, not eating/drinking, feces looks watery etc. those are ALL symptoms of something wrong and should immediately be seen by a vet. No one but you can see this bird so we couldn't even guess as to what the sickness is. I know you did eventually bring him to a vet which was good.

    I want to explain to you that what the vet suggested is normal and may have been the best option, in his or her opinion. Euthanasia is a humane method to allow a pet to go peacefully and pain free. If your bird is in pain or will die a slow, painful death, euthanasia is an option any vet will tell the owner. Of course, it is ultimately up to you to decide but dying "naturally" can be more dificult for the bird and the owner.

    Also, was this vet an avian vet (a vet that specializes in the treatment of birds)? If not, (s)he may not have known what to do or how to diagnose. If you feel uncomfortable with this vet, seek a quaiified avian vet that you trust and get a second opinion.

    If Armani is back at home, you might want to set up a hospital cage (a small cage with only food and water and a perch close to the ground, some millet would be good too) with a heat source over 1/2 of it. Maintaining temperature requires a lot of energy in sick birds so if you can provide it externally, it conserves the bird's energy. There is obviously something wrong with Armani and until you know what it is, you need to help him out as best as you can. GOod luck and keep us updated.
