Re: Tail bobbing?

I mean, you know your birds better than I do. If that bobbing is normal, then you could maybe wait? For my bird, that would be a red flag, as it is not typical for most. If they say nothing is wrong, I would honestly ask them what they did to determine that. I am no vet- but again, unless your other birds do that too, and it is normal for this one, I think it is worth getting it checked- again, especially given the infection of your other bird.

Re: Tail bobbing?

Here is an example of a more extreme tail bob from a sick bird-
To me (personally) your bird appears to be doing the same thing, to a lesser extent, and if it were me, I would get it checked.

Re: Tail bobbing?

One of my birds has a more pronounced tail bob, but it's been that way since I got her about three years ago. For this bird, however, it isn't normal, so I'd like to get her checked out.

Re: Tail bobbing?

Have you ever had the other bird checked? I guess, just make sure that the "other bird" isn't passing stuff around.

Avian. I'm lucky to have one 20 minutes from my house.

Re: Tail bobbing?

Well actually I think he sees exotics as well but he is an avian certified vet.

Re: Tail bobbing?

Very good- just wanted to make sure---birds can be very tricky with illness and sometimes it takes a variety of tests to detect them, so just wanted to make sure your vet specialized in birds.
