Re: African gray may have had a stroke.

I'm sorry for what you and Mr. Smith are going through. Thank you for rescuing him, and giving him a much better life that he would have otherwise had.

I've heard that acupuncture is good for stroke victims in humans, but I don't know if you could find a Chinese doctor that works on birds, or if Mr. Smith would go for it.

It's such a hard decision to put a loved animal down. My boyfriend's dog has really bad arthritis and has trouble walking now (she falls a lot because her legs are unsteady), and I think she has canine dementia. It's so hard to know what the right choice is, but I am sure you will do the right thing. Does he seem happy most of the time, even if he's "just sitting there", or does he seem unhappy in general?
