Unhappy cockatiel regurgitating/vomiting clear liquid

hi! im brand new to this forum and made an account just to post this. i went shopping with my family today and when we arrived home, i opened up my cockatiels cage. she came out like normal but my grandmother and i noticed some sticky stuff on her crest, cheeks and on her beak. she let me wipe it off- it had already dried. i didnt think much about it but about 10 minutes ago i saw her vomit/regurgitate completely clear liquid. and i mean completely clear- she did drink some water and all, but i'm not sure if she drank too much.

when she vomited, she just did a stretching motion with her neck and let it fall out of her mouth and onto the ground. she seems very tired but she still reacts to my whistling by whistling back or looking at me. she lets me pick her up and seems to react normally to everything, but is just sitting puffed up right now. her poop is runny.

Re: cockatiel regurgitating/vomiting clear liquid

That sounds like a very dangerous situation for your bird. Please bring them to the vet ASAP. The vomiting, abnormal poops, and abnormal behavior is a very high chance that your bird is sick.

As some follow up questions, was there any food in her vomit? When was the last time you watched her eat? How long have her poops been abnormal? Has she lost any weight? Are you sure your bird is female? Is her vent dirty? How old is your bird?

Re: cockatiel regurgitating/vomiting clear liquid

thank you for a response. as it is the weekend, all of the vets are closed. we live at the tip of texas and have very limited avian veterinary service.

1. no, there was no food in her vomit.

2. she ate a little bit after she vomited.

3. she pooped just now and they looked abnormal- they were fine all yesterday and this morning.

4. she hasn't lost any weight.

5. yes, my bird is a female. she has laid a multitude of eggs.

6. her vent is not dirty.

7. she's about 3 years old.

Re: cockatiel regurgitating/vomiting clear liquid

Welcome to the forums. I wish you’d joined under happier circumstances but we’d like to help. I agree with munami, your cockatiel needs immediate medical care. Have you called emergency pet clinics in your area? Birds hide symptoms of illness as long as they possibly can, the symptoms she’s showing now sound very serious.

Re: cockatiel regurgitating/vomiting clear liquid

If possible, see if your vet has any emergency vet recommendations on their site. If it's not possible until Monday, keep her warm, monitor her weight, her poops, and her behavior carefully.

Re: cockatiel regurgitating/vomiting clear liquid

I live in Texas too, I understand how scarce avian certified vets are in the rural areas. If you can’t get her in to see a vet before Monday then I would make the appointment as soon as possible and make sure it’s an Avian certified vet if possible. Watch your little tiel closely so you’ll be able to tell the vet exactly what’s going on with her. Egg laying can deplete a bird’s resources and cause illness, you should discuss it with the vet, there are precautions you can take to curb the laying cycles. For now watch her closely, give her water and maybe soften some pellets in water for her, I wouldn’t force her to eat but I would offer her soft food so she doesn’t get too weak. I hope she’ll be okay, please keep us updated.
