Re: please help im so worried

One thing I have seen about Grey's, they are very empathetic. They pick up on how you are feeling better than other people can most of the time. The best thing you can do for Leo is keep calm, realize you have done the best you can for him taking him to a good avian vet. He will know how upset you are and he will react. Right now make sure he gets a good nights rest and then make sure you get a good nights rest. Tomorrow keep an eye on but stay calm and keep in as normal as possible. If you are scared Leo will be too. Keep calm and spend some quality time with Leo. A positive attitude and a happy bird are Leo's best medicine until you get his test back.

Keep Leo clam, well rested, and happy. It is not only the best for his well being, it is best for your's. It's hard but worrying won't help Leo and it certainly won't help you.

Yes itís true they pick up on our emotions. They are super intelligent letís hope this is minor and will pass. Heís still a young bird and should be strong to pull through.

I hope Leo improves, how is his appetite now?

The risk of heart attack is related to extreme stress at the time of blood draw. Not all birds will panic while being restrained, and some vets have better bedside manner to help calm. Leo won't be at risk after the vet visit is complete.

Is the well known vet avian certified? Many vets have some knowledge and equipment and refer to themselves as "exotic vets" but don't have the extensive training necessary for all but basic needs.

Re: please help im so worried

so just got a call from the vet..


Leo's blood count was okay
Calcium level was okay


his cholestrol is high from the seeds and the chicken bones that we give him..... so we have to stop that immediately


and we are still treating the excess yeast in his poop

Glad to hear there was nothing more serious. Now you can make the needed changes, treat the yeast and start getting back to normal.
