Our parakeet was very sick and had been experiencing seizure activities. I have nursed him back to health and he is almost back to normal. He no longer stays puffed up, eats, drinks and preens himself as usual. I suspected there may be a vitamin deficiency because he refuses to eat fruit and so on. I began putting a couple of drops of apple cider vinegar in his water and purchased sprinkle on vitamins. He had no respiratory issues that I could tell. Anyway, he is now climbing around his cage but still a bit unbalanced. I have lowered his perches ext to keep him from falling. He has been doing well for about 3 days now. I just wondered how long if ever will it take him to recover? Or if there is anything else I should be doing for him.
