Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

I'm so glad she's doing so much better...I'm sorry about her eye..What did the Vet say is causing her "blindness"? How did the Vet even know she is having vision issues, did she test her vision? Or...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

Okay, you need to take a minute and think here...No more medications without a diagnosis, as she's had too many already and they can make her just as sick or worse...

***If this Vet thinks she...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

I would wait until you get the culture result and see if she needs to take a medication, and what the med they prescribe is, because there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between a Nebulizer treatment and just...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

No, keep her in her cage...She's still eating and drinking on her own, she's still able to move around in her cage on her own, and that is her "safe space", it's what she's used to and feels safest...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

It's a judgement call...Honestly, if she were to be admitted to an animal hospital, they would simply keep her in a heated-incubator/cage, feed her normally if she's still eating on her own (it's not...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

It's very hard to answer that question Jose, but if she's sleeping all day long then chances are not long...At this point the Nebulizer is almost a must. She's got some type of very nasty URI/lung...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

Oh I'm so sorry, this is exactly why these damn Vets cannot just "guess" what is wrong with them and prescribe medications that aren't correct; Honestly the Baytril is them doing exactly the same...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of, but figured to be true, because this is what the norm is anymore, at least with non-Certified Avian Vets or Exotic's Vets who don't understand that birds are not...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

The fungal infection showed-up after she took all the antibiotics, so it's secondary to the antibiotics, which is extremely common in birds, reptiles, dogs, people, any living creature who takes an...

Re: Did my cockatiel have a seizure?

It sounds to me like she is being treating for Psittacosis, in fact I'm sure of it. It's a bacterial infection that usually expresses itself with Respiratory symptoms and Conjunctivitis in the eyes,...
