Re: Transient Ischemic Attacks in Parrots

I just watched the last 3 videos that document the entire thing...I actually commented that I thought it looked like mini-strokes, lol, ironic...

Yeah, she never came back after that, I hope that isn't an indication that the bird passed-away, as her Avian Vet seemed to think it was just "clumsiness" or a problem with his leg or foot, which it obviously was not. Hopefully she still gets notifications when she gets a PM and she'll get back to you with what the end-result was...She also was posting the videos on YouTube, so you might go to YouTube and search for the videos and find her username/account there, she was probably more active on YouTube than here, and maybe still is...

Re: Transient Ischemic Attacks in Parrots

id suggest nigella sativa seeds as it helps people with neurological problems. they are safe for birds. https://www.researchgate.net/publica...eed_-_A_Review here is a good article on it. you can order the seeds off amazon and implement to your birds diet. sorry to hear about this. you have a good head on your shoulders and will definitely work this out.

Re: Transient Ischemic Attacks in Parrots

I think we all know that you canít live the rabble-rousing, henzz chasing, cigar smoking, hard drinking, depraved mafioso lifestyle without eventually facing some consequences.

In seriousness though, I have nothing useful to offer but my sincere hope these episodes are just little blips in the next 34 years of RBís life. ❤️

Re: Transient Ischemic Attacks in Parrots

I got no medical advice ... only maybe don't get him a different cage, just put something higher up inside the cage he has now so he doesn't freak? I hope there is something they can do ...

Re: Transient Ischemic Attacks in Parrots

Ellen, good idea... I'll get to YouTube. You're the best.

marr... thank you! I'll ask my vet about those seeds... I thik there are already some in the Harrison's I feed... but I will find out!

Inger, yessssssss, the chickens have, so to speak, come home to roost! You can't expect to live the thug life and not have problems, eventually. Thanks for the thoughts.

Ms. Sidechick... I definitely AM having second thoughts about the cage. Maybe alter it... I probaby don't want to get him an unfamiliar one, right? He has been fine, thank goodness, since the event.

Okay, thanks, everybody... I'm grateful. Feeling very supported.

Re: Transient Ischemic Attacks in Parrots

There is a platform style perch available, which is made from stainless steel bar much like the construction the cage. Used one a bunch of years ago, will need to dig around a bit, I know that it made the move.

It sounds like a combination of what? Moving Stuff Down or moving the bottom-up?

Re: Transient Ischemic Attacks in Parrots

Gee, Mr. Boats...
I guess... either or both?
I'm looking for a more shallow cage (less tall) for starters... still just looking and thinking.
The Rb has had so many cages over the years. He'd adjust quickly. And now that I'm retired, he doesn't spend much time i it anyway, so smaller might be just fine AND safer.
And that perch thingie sounds GOOD.

Re: Transient Ischemic Attacks in Parrots

Sending warm thoughts and prayers your and RB's way, my friend. Judging from what you've said, compared with what we see in the video from the other thread (Great idea providing the link for that, EllenD), it is at least possible both birds are suffering from the same ailment. RB's just seems far less advanced.

Or it may be the case of his just getting tripped up. I'm hoping the vet will have more answers for you when he returns. In the meantime, please give RB some extra scritches for me? And a chili or two?
