- Parakeet, Quaker parrot
My parrot was doing find this past week up until today, my mom told me she saw my parrot in his water bowl slouching down and looked as if he were dead according to her, and usually when my mom would put one of her fingers in his cage he would charge at her but this time he didn’t. He seemed to be tired, I took him out of his cage and tried to see what was going to but it didn’t appear like anything was wrong, me and my parrot have this flock call we do together, I whistled and he didn’t do the same call back, this was the first time he had done that. It’s weird because he always calls back to me. I then took him onto my bed so that he can spend some time with me, a few minutes later he vomited clear slimy liquid and there were white chucks in there as well, he wasn’t regurgitating since I’ve seen him do it a lot of times. This time was different, I’m certain he threw up, I told my mom what happened and I also said that if we don’t get the care he needs he will get even more sick and possibly die, unfortunately my mom does not want to take him to the vet, according to her she does not want to spend around $300 for the vet. Is there anything I can do?? I don’t want to lose him I’ve had him ever since he was a baby and I’ve grown attached. I don’t want to replace him.
