socks192 asked: Okay, do you guys know anything about birds? Cause my parakeet is acting weird, like slow, not his cheery self, off balance, and his head isn't turning to the left. He can move it to the right just fine, but he absolutely refuses to turn it left. The vet office we usually call is closed and it is too late to call the local pet shop. It just happened and I am worried. Know anything that might help???
Any followers who can help, please send messages directly to socks192!
any of my followers good with birds?
We have him sitting in a shoe box so he doesn’t fly around and hurt himself more.
Any information will help ;;

- wrenpuff said:find somewhere quickly! Even if you have to go out of your way. As prey species, birds hide their ailments until the absolute last second. If he’s showing symptoms, he’s in a lot of trouble! there are usually emergency vet clinics that are open 24/7!
