"My two year old severe macaw Bubbles passed away while I held him/her seizures. The pain I am experiencing is unbearable and one of my daughter's is devastated. I had everything in place in my avairy that was bird safe but even then, I feel responsible so I am awaiting the results of the necropsy. The obvious problem of slumping occurred on Sunday morning. I thought Bubbles had chills and seizures and I was correct. Although everything in the room was bird/childproofed since I have a total of 17 birds, Bubbles could have somehow chewed either a window sill (old) or a small hanging stained glass decoration ( I found Bubbles perched ontop and immediately removed Bubbles from it. We never left Bubbles unattended and she seemed to just be happy playing on playtop of the cages I own terrorizing or visiting the other birds! Bubbles knew how to inflect vocalization to sound so human and sweet since I have eight children he was learning all the dogs (4 JRs) and kids names and was so funny and darling. I am in deep mourning. I took her to the vet on Monday but first gave her amoxicciln broad treatment meds 30 mgs right away but with birds illness is masked moving a bird is risky. After the vet despite my gatoreraid, meds antiseizure meds the darling seized while I held her and screamed and the breath went. The most difficult thing was letting her go from my arms and preparing her for necropsy but it had to be done. I placed in in a coffin in the extra frig I have in the basement with her favorite bell. Please love your macaw and please pray that she had some strange problem that I somehow did not cause her death thru inadvertently placing her in harm's way. I know people say its just a bird, to me she was my baby. Marma"
