Topaz my blue quaker

22 posts in this topic

Is going to the vet in the morning.  She either has a tumor or she is fat.  Even though it well mean I am a bad bad quaker mama I hope she is just fat. That I can do something about.  I can't sleep.  So been researching and really does sound like she is just fat.

Ill let you all know when I know.

All the parrots I own are on the same diet. Even the parents of Topaz and somehow Topaz is obese. No one else is just her. At least it is something I can fix.

I can see now that is part of the problem. I can't get her to move much.  I did get her to weave around and do some head bobbing.  I guess thats a start.

If there are sunflowers in her diet, try cutting them out :). I'm sure you already knew that though (:donthit:)

I'm glad its just a weight issue. I'd love to see pictures of Topaz. I love quakers but they are illegal to have as pets where I live. :(

You do not know how glad I am of that. Surgery on a bird is very tricky.

She's gorgeous! I'm glad she's just a bit pudgy and there was no tumour. :)

LOL the vet called her obese.  Still getting her to dance and she well set up on her feet now when she does it.  Maybe Ill be able to get her to walk/wobble soon too.

She is down from 170g to 155g.  I don't have a gram scale so had to figure out how many oz 170 is then weigh her on the my scale then convert oz to grams. lol She is 5.5 oz and need to be 4.4ish so Ill be doing it that way from now on.

I always suspected she was eating her seeds and picking at the rest. She has no seeds now and I think that is why the drop in weight was so quick. But she is eating so she is not starving. 

From now on seeds are treats only for her.
