I know this was really hard for you to type, but thank you for letting us know.

Re: Need advice

Yikes, West Nile? Will the testing establish this with certainty? If ultimately West Nile, your other bird may be in jeopardy.

Re: Need advice

If it was West Nile Virus, then your other bird surely has it as well, they lived together, and though it is not contagious from bird to bird, if there was one infected mosquito that bit one bird, your other bird may very well have been bitten by one as well! Did you take him into the Avian Vet as well?

Re: Need advice

The remaining bird had her first West Nile vaccine yesterday and it will be an annual thing now. The vet says the tissue tests being done can not 100% tell us West Nile, but will rule out some other odd virus.

Well that's good to know anyway...I know it's a tough disease to diagnose and almost impossible to treat, as by the time they show symptoms of anything being wrong, such as collapse, fatigue, dizziness, etc., the disease is very progressed...Best to you and your other bird, glad he got the vaccine.
