Got a call from the vet this morning...Oliver gained 23g last night in fluids and eating (he loves to eat). He is getting more substance in his BMs and is perking up. He is at the front of his incubator watching everyone, and fights the exams and recovers from them well. They are giving him pain meds because he is still fluffy and in a some pain. We will go visit him today, and they will do the testing tomorrow and then he can come home.

Glad to hear the good news!

Thanks! Me too....parrots are so tricky. They NEVER show symptoms as they are prey animals, and any type of symptom means a sure death in the wild. When I saw Oliver acting strange I panicked because (like all small animals) you have an extremely small window to fix the problem...it goes fatal very very fast. The vet of course had to make sure I knew how fatal his symptoms could be, but we won't know until tomorrow or later on what is actually wrong with him. I am praying it is just an infection, or something medication can control.

Oliver is the first parrot to need medical attention in our house...our oldest parrot is 13 years old. In that way, I suppose we have been lucky...but we definitely don't take enough preventative care. I think our oldest is the only parrot who has ever gone for a check up. On the bright side, we now found a competent avian vet
