Re: sick Jenday need help

Does he still have wing drops?

You stopped fruit mix right? Can you explain how you make that, and store it? I do worry a fruit mix could go off, and that's a lot of fruit sugar for them.

But it sounds like he us eating on his own,,?

Re: sick Jenday need help

The fruit I did stop the other day. his wings are still drooped. this am when he came out of his little house i actually saw him stretch his wings out which was nice to see but hes still not well. The vet will be here in like 3 hours to check on him and take care of the rest of the flock (i made this appt month ago before toto got sick)
The fruit I usually only chop whatever Im feeding him that day. Usually grapes, blueberries, snap peas, greenbeans, apples and brocoli...all depends what I get from the store. usually I give them fresh stuff from the garden wen its that time of year.
Im glad hes hanging in there but this is exhausting just feeling helpless and refusing to leave the house for anything unless my bf is here

Re: sick Jenday need help

Sickies get to eat whatever they want, lol that the rule st my house.

Veggies is great you can still offer veggies. Guess I was picturing a fruit salad situation.

I hope the meds are kicking in. Do you give the rest by mouth? Or will you go get a shot each time?,

Doxyclin is the first choice if chlamydia is suspected.

This is a study of both our antibiotics doxyclin, and azithromyacin, to treat chlamydia. Its nit trying to say one is better than the other just that both work. If you are interested to read. It is a study so , things can be hard to read, about...

Re: sick Jenday need help

I am def going to read that. She only gave him that one injection Tuesday night, which when I googled it I found conflicting doses... but I think she was waiting to see if it works or for the blood results to be sure? She just left here a little while ago. Toto does seam better than he has been..he actually took a bath on his own which he hasnt done since before the 31st. While she was here it was hard to tell toto and pheonix apart because toto was acting completely normall, wings picked up not floofy, just eyes a little tired as a sign of illness so we were suspecting that its working...but of course as soon as she pulled out of my driveway he started doing his baby bird thing again with the flappy wings and calls. but even with that being said, he is improving and it hasnt been 48 hours yet since injection so thats good. The wing stretch and the bath made me the happiest I have been in weeks. She did a health check on all the babies, and actually realized that our newest conure (the sun) isnt from the place claimed and isnt the age we were told (almsot 1 year) so he/she is still just a baby which explains alot. long story short we got it from petco after the one we were supposed to get died (at a different location petco) at the store so the manager sent us to the other store to see if we were interested but there was no bird there like she said, they sold it the night before but the guy told me to leave my number because he had a bad feeling it would come back. next day got a call..3 days later picked the bird up...terrible stress bars poor thing looked like it had been through the ringer...
we only noticed the info was incorrect because she was able to just pull the band off and she said the bird looked young and that normally hurricane aviaries where it came from is a different band code. Ours was silver and says EDL fl 845..sooo that being said, the test for the disease is probably BS paper work. We brought it home October 21 quarentined before meeting other birds which Im not sure if the time line would make sense if petrie has something and passed on to toto (toto would regurgitate for petrie but pheonix still not a fan) even though all birds would need treatment, atleast if it IS that, then there is a treatment...

Re: sick Jenday need help

I will def be sticking around and update all the profile stuff too! This is such a great forum!. Its now saturday and toto is doing better every day but I still havent recieved his bloodwork. Fortunatly the Vet works for herself so I have her cell number and I made sure to give her xtra money as a thank you for seeing me after hour. I was going to text her in a little bit to give her the update on Toto and see if the blood work is in yet. I have a feeling that with the doxy working maybe it is chlymidia and maybe it came from the sun conure whos documentation isnt adding up. Once I get a minute to breath Im going to call the pet store about that too... Thanks again for all your help. Not out of the woods yet but starting to see the light to the way out

Re: sick Jenday need help

It takes 40 days treatment to clear chlamydia. It easy to re infect and relapse. Ehole flock should be treated.
So glad things getting better

As a favor take a close up eye pic. Both my sick burds iris darkened when sick. Its nit well documented. Take a pic of eye when well to

Re: sick Jenday need help

Its the 21st now wanted to update..Not sure why but Totos blood work is still not back yet which he got his before Petries (our sun conure) and hers came back. Petrie was negative for chlymidia and all other blood work was in normal range.
The doxy injection really helped Toto but he still wasnt 100% after a week and Pheonix looks iffy sometimes (not sure if shes mimicking, but her eyes look sleep sometimes) so I asked the vet for some more antibiotics so its back to getting my fingers bit off giving them the oral meds for the next 2 weeks... WE will get through this dammit! How is your flock doing Laurasea? Yall have been in my thoughts too!!

Re: sick Jenday need help

Glad to see your updates. Are you weighing those birdies?! No excuses!
Are the oral meds doxycycline? I hope so!
When any antibiotics have been given before a culture its possible to have a false negative.

Penny is doing great. Tadah is struggling some, was being under dosed, and went as high as over 12% weight loss, she is needing supportive foods, but difficult to get in her..
