"We have a 10 year old B&G macaw, he's been with us for about 9 years now. He has become ill over the past 2 weeks and we cannot figure out what is going on with him. It began with some behavioral changes: less active, sleeping more, just sitting on his perch not doing much. Then he began vomiting quite often, and I noticed his weight felt different. We took him to the vet today and he's lost 1/3 of his body weight. He now just seems listless and weak, he just sits on my arm, leans against me and sets his beak on my shoulder. He just sits there with his eyes closed, or he's got his head turned around and tucked into his feathers on his back. His stools haven't changed, and when he vomits he brings up a lot of mucus. I haven't noticed any blood in his vomit or stool. We're very worried about him and trying to figure out what is going on. Nothing in the environment has changed recently except that we had new windows and doors put in our home. We moved him and his cage into a room where he could stay warm and not get exposed to any of the work that was being done. Any insight would be appreciated, he's my baby and I'm so worried about him! Thank you!"
