Sneezing

Post by ElliottsMomma » Wed Sep 24, 2008 7:18 pm

I think my bird had a sneezing fit tonight and I am a little worried. He was standing by his food dish and he sneezed (well, they sounded like sneezes) at least 10 times, one right after another. Is that a sign that he could be sick? I am such a worrier!!

are there something to irritate him, there?
if not, he may catches a cold.
A mutivitamin supplement in his drinking water, or in his fruits and vegetables is useful.
If sneeze continue i suggest to take him to a vet, maybe for an antibiotic.
Has he any other syptoms?

He has been acting totally normal and he hasn't sneezed since. His appetite is good and he is very active. I am keeping a close eye on him and if it happens again I am calling the vet!!

Yep thats what I reckon too, just trying to get something out that went where it shouldn't have.
