I'm glad to hear that Oliver is doing a bit better and keeping my fingers crossed that he recovers completely. I know exactly what you mean about hiding their symptoms - I had an African Gray that seemed perfectly healthy until one day he had a seizure and died... :cry:

Healing thoughts for Zeddie & good wishes for those test results! Our feathered boss lived to be 28 yrs old before he left us for Rainbow bridge, hope yours get older. :Geeky:

So, so sorry to hear of your African Grey! How old was he? They are just so tricky...I'm thinking now I want to do a check-up on all of the birds as a precaution.
Oliver's blood was taken this am, and test results will be in this afternoon. I am going to pick him up around 5:30 tonight. The results will be in by then and they will be able to medicate him properly.

Sending good thoughts your way!
We have a 12 year old green cheek conure (she lives with my Mom because Diablo kept trying to eat her), and she goes to the vet 1x per year. It is expensive, but I find it gives me peace of mind. Birds are so delicate.

Turns out Oliver is actually OLIVIA!!

The vet said that Oli had enough calcium and vitamin A for every day living, but something inspired "her" to change things up and lay an egg! So she definitely did not have enough calcium and vitamin A needed to lay an egg, and realized that after starting and aborted. The stress on her body caused inflammation and infections in her body, which came to a head on Sunday. The vet that admitted her on Sunday isn't an avian specialist, and didn't think Oli would live an hour after drop off. He called the avian vet who came in and they administered fluids and pain meds, which did wonders over night! By Saturday Oli was perching on the male dr's shoulder while he did notes around the back, and would do a protective stance anytime someone got it into their head to go anywhere near him.

The avian dr prescribed all kinds of antibiotics and supplements to get Oli back on track, and gave us tips to prevent this from happening again.

I am SO relieved!! I was panicking all weekend, and skipped classes today in case there were any calls with blood work results or any need to rush over there.

We are going to begin yearly visits to the vet (a few have made it to the vet before, but I have never found a vet that I found effective/competent. I was using the same vet for my rabbit and birds, but sadly my rabbit died the weekend that she went to the vet, and a proper examination was NOT given while she was there. It wasn't their fault she died, but it was their fault they didn't look for the problem)...anyways I absolutely love this vet, and my 4 parrots will absolutely be going there, and any little furries that come into my home here in out.

THANK YOU for all the healing thoughts and support you guys have given me......this is an amazing community and an extension of family

I think he was about 12 years old. It was really quite sudden, and surprising, and sad...

I'm glad to hear that Olivia is going to be okay! I had a finch that became egg bound once, I almost lost her as well, but once she was able to pass the egg she was completely fine.

That is awful! The vet said she has seen that happen many times...usually when the calcium and vitamin A levels are so low. I would be absolutely devastated. I love all my parrots very much, but my African Grey is definitely my girl (we know for sure she is a girl, so I highly doubt we will have this problem with her as she is bonded to me, and Oliver is bonded to my other parrot Benny)
