Conure sounds congested after bathing?

I've noticed that my Sun Conure, Mouse, sounds congested after her bath this morning. She's sounded crystal clear and was fine till after she dunked herself.

Normally I spray her, as she never learned how to take a bath properly (she was raised alone by her hand feeder and has mental development issues as my vet says).

The last few times I've sprayed her she gotten into her water dish to 'bath again'. I have no idea of she's not holding her breath or what.

Of that normal? None of my others do it. Could she have gotten water in her nose and it's irrartated? Like I said she's sounded clear. I'm making her a vet appointment just in case.

Re: Conure sounds congested after bathing?

Kyo has definitely gotten water in her nose after a bath - I'm sure that is the most likely situation but you're smart for making an appointment just in case.

The Rb often sneezes and hacks a bit after a serious bath. It goes away in about 15 minutes.

Re: Conure sounds congested after bathing?

She's been doing it for at least 10 hours now. Which is why I'm worried. Her chest sounds clear, no wheeze or clicks, it sounds like it just her nasal area. My vet can get her in tomorrow evening. He'll likely place her on antibiotics just in case. Maybe some steroid fit a few days if any irritation or swelling.

Re: Conure sounds congested after bathing?

Yes, when in doubt, it's best to go in to the AV just in case. Birds are so careful about hiding any signs of weakness that going with a gut feeling is often the best chance you have of catching something before it's too late.
