Re: Free African Grey Boston area

She did give me a little scare tonight, I got up to the cage talking to her and singing to her and I could hear her wheezing when she breathed. I listened for quite a while and after a few seconds she stopped, started talking and whistling and even being silent I couldn't hear it anymore. Then she did it again, coughed and then stopped again. I had heard the cough earlier and could tell it was a mimic and not her coughing. Her poop looks great so does her vent and nares.

I knew I would be calling the vet in the morning but my favorite AV vet is typically booked a few days and up to a week in advance unless it is a clear emergency, so I was thinking if she might have a respiratory issue I would want to get her in asap.

When she stopped for quite some time I started wondering if maybe it was a sound she picked up over the years. She has lots of household noises and outside bird song as well.

So I called her former family and sure enough they have an older dog named Bella that used to also be their son's so Flo has been around her for many years, she is a boxer type dog (I think) I saw her there today and she looked older. Apparently she is the one who taught Flo to cough, wheeze and fart since Bella often slept next to Flo's cage. She also does a more human sounding cough, sneezes and says bless you.
