It sounds like you are doing a lot right. I’m sorry that an unethical breeder sent you home with an unweaned baby and put you in this position.

Your biggest risk right now are dehydration and electrolyte depletion. Does baby drink water on his own? What solid foods does he munch?

Also, Nekton is a great brand, they have a product called nekton-biotic-bird which is a probiotic, see if you can get your hands on that (probiotics are why people suggest yogurt). Also consider adding nekton-q which is just a booster for birds struggling with medical issues.

In the mean time you need to see a specialized avian vet. If you’ve already ruled out bacteria my next thought is a new parasite specifically a water born one like protozoa. Ask your vet about that.

thank you for the reply,
no he is not drinking water and i still didnt give him solid food he is on the formula for 4 times a day 6 hrs apart, nothing changed for the past week, week before that he was scheduled on 6 meals a day.

Re: baby gray has diarrhea

how is he doing? It looks like the poop is more solid...
I use Nekton products but just be SUPER CAUTIOUS when reading dosing instructions, as I have an entire post devoted to this (they are very misleading in some cases). I do like Nekton.

Re: baby gray has diarrhea

Yeah- sounds like it is very serious (weight loss, probable dehydration, lethargy= major red flags in the current situation). If you have to drive an hour or 2, I probably would.

Re: baby gray has diarrhea

sorry for the late update,

took him today again to the vet as recommended, did throat & crop swab all came negative, the funny thing he was active, no diarrhea as he gave the veterinary live sample which was a big relieve but i got that look from veterinary he was like nothing is wrong with him why are you here lol, i told him the story he said maybe he was stressed that's it... as for the weight lost he said now he is already above average which is good and the lost 5 grams will be gained again since he recovered.

so its either because of Nekton products kicked in or of the 30g warm mashed banana i gave him ...... I'm so happy to see Leo active again and chasing Rio (my 3 years old double yellow head Amazon) and hope to see full recovery from his diarrhea.

thank you guys for being beside me to get through this
