Little Henry my 3 month old parrotlet passed away today. A few days ago he accidentally aspirated a little water in his water dish - really freak accident. When it first happened, Henry had gone into shock, then recovered. I took him to the vet the next day and he said Henry looked fine. He was very active, eating, drinking and climbing with Riley. Then, this morning, I found Riley standing next to Henry's still body. It was so sad. He was so tiny and young.
I never had such an accident happen ever before. I had given them a dish just big enough for them to bathe in. What a horrible mistake. Now Riley has a tiny water dish again.
