Re: Conure health problems?

ItYou should follow you instincts. If you fear the xray don't do it. They already know tje liver is likely enlarged by the elevated values, and they can palpate that. There is blood work that can test for heavy metal , they can listen to the heart.
Now I'm not saying that something can turn up in the xray, and x-rays are great tools. But if you are truly have a bad feeling, respect that. An x-ray isn't going to cure your bird, it's just a way to gather more information. There are other ways to gather information, sometimes a vet will initiate treatment , and if the treatment works that's there answer.
Did they do cultures? A fecal and oral swab? Did they check for virus like PDD? What did the CBC show?

Re: Conure health problems?

How is Tootsie?????? I've been so worried!
Last we heard from you Tootsie was at the vets awaiting x-rays...........I'm so scared since we haven't heard back from you. I hope everything is ok. We are thinking of you.
