Re: Cockatiel smells like Lysol?

Re: Cockatiel smells like Lysol?

Another update: It happened again, same symptoms. I think I see the pattern now as these “episodes” are occurring around every Tuesday. I spoke to another vet and they believe she is being poisoned...

Re: Cockatiel smells like Lysol?

Re: Cockatiel smells like Lysol?

Re: Cockatiel smells like Lysol?

Yes, the doctor is a certified avian and exotics vet. We didn't do a blood test the first time I saw her because Jay looked stable and she suggested we try something smaller first. However, I'm...

Re: Cockatiel smells like Lysol?

Re: Cockatiel smells like Lysol?
