The Amazon parrot is one of the 4 in the apartment. He passes loose stools but has no diarrhoea. He does not want to eat and drink.

The owner did give almonds as a new source of diet. The only 3 parrots are not affected by the almonds. I explained that this parrot could have eaten some food like vegetables and/or the almonds which had upset her gut leading to mild gastroenteritis.

Syringe feed antibiotics, water and crushed sunflower seeds for the next 3 days. Wash vegetables well. Restrict to 3 types of vegetables till he recover.

Neck – feather picking some years ago. New feathers cannot grow as the follicles could have been badly damaged.
