How To Recognize A Respiratory Tract Ailment In Your Parrot

A respiratory tract ailment can be fatal to your parrot if left untreated. Find out how to recognize if your parrot is having problem with its breathing.

The most obvious indication that your parrot has a problem can be seen in their tail movement. You should barely be able to see the tail of your parrot moving. If the parrot's tail is moving a lot, is very noticeable, and is labored, this may be a sign that there is a problem with its health.

If your parrot is having a hard time breathing because it has blocked nostrils, this could be a sign that your parrot has a respiratory tract ailment. You should check your parrot's nostrils for discharge or even blockage.

It may be possible to relieve the blockage with medication. See your Vet for the best medication for your parrot. They will more than likely instruct you to hold your parrot on its back and put a drop of the medicine in each of its nostrils. If there is a lot discharge there, you can bathe the nostrils with warm water in order to remove the worst of the blockage before you start with the medicine.

Long-term cases can be difficult to cure, even when the parrot is treated with antibiotics. The parrots condition may seem to improve, but can worsen again if the parrot becomes stressed at all.

Since a sick parrot can get worse, seek veterinary advice as soon as possible. Describe the symptoms as clearly as possible and give a history of your parrot.
