Im in a bad state my freinds. Sweetie is not well.
Dont read on if you are squeemish 'cause i'll tell ya what happened.
The second the vet picked SWEETIE up he PUKED all over him. It wasnt ooze from his eyes, it was VOMIT that had gotten on his HEAD, i just hadn't seen my baby vomit so didnt know. hence the smell. And here came MY tears. SO.
Vet is calling this "Avian Gastric Yeast" (completely unrelated to a yeast infection he says though?). Vet says its very common in birds from pet stores (sweetie is a petco bird) and thinks his massive liver enlargement, which is what the Xray showed (way way too big) is a clear symptom/indicator of this disease.
There's a poss that its bacterial if his diagnosis is wrong, so he gave him antibiotics, but also Rx'd a medicine that i'll hafta give SWEETIE for a month to try to help his liver/gastric problem/disease & hope there's a chance for him still. He says anything could have brought this on, that it was prob dormant in him for years, no way to know. I'll know more soon, gonna do research now, and have a follow up appt soon.
HOPING AND PRAYING SWEETIE WILL PULL THRU THIS, I JUST DONT KNOW WHAT ID DO.........
