Re: Positive thoughts. I'm freaking out.

Official diagnosis: distended crop.

Unofficial diagnosis: Leo is a pig.

He's eating too fast. I did notice in the last few weeks he's eating his meals in practically no time flat. Vet said to give him smaller meals more frequently and make him work for it more.

Re: Positive thoughts. I'm freaking out.

OMG Beatrice, how did I not see this post. After all the support from when Salty hurt himself, I am sorry. Leo had you worried, but if thats the diagnosis, thats not bad. Little piggy huh? Reminds of another parrot... whose name begins with S. I am very glad that he will be ok, with some food management.

Re: Positive thoughts. I'm freaking out.

Thanks!

Now that I'm back to my computer...

Basically what he said is that it looks like he probably got bored with his same food day in and day out and started eating it too fast. Combine that with my youngest kid being helpful and feeding the birds some mornings (and over feeding them, probably), he ate too much too fast, which distended his crop and it probably got a little inflamed, which caused him not to feel so hot, which explains everything else. Everything else looks perfect. His weight is at the top of the acceptable range, which is the only other thing we need to watch, but his temperature, heart rate, respirations, feathers, and general disposition are great. I'm to do some food management, and watch him for a couple weeks. If any alarming symptoms like discolored poop, lethargy beyond what we've already seen, etc show up, I take him back immediately. If no improvement at all, we'll take him back for a more comprehensive blood work/poop analysis. If improvement, then we go back for his regular annual exam for his year 10 work up as scheduled in August. If we take him back in two weeks, we'll just call that his ten year check up and not bring him in with everybody else in August.

Re: Positive thoughts. I'm freaking out.

So happy Leo has nothing more than a piggish disposition! What a stunning turn of events from any number of distressing diagnoses.

Leo can now celebrate... with something other than food!!
