A hard decision
So i've got a male tiel who can't breath right and makes a sound when breathing from his nostrils, most of the time he breaths with his mouth open. Now, he is at vet's office for the second day but he showed no improvement. His behaviour is normal though. The vet did everything but didn't see anything. We thought it maybe due to water because he isn't careful when he drinks water but he should have improved after the meds if it was due to water.
It may be due to a seed or a feather.. he must have a radiography of his trachea but the vet wants to do anaesthesia in order to do this.. which is dangerous..
So he told me to think about it while we still wait to see if his health improves.
I don't think that letting him like this is a solution, it will only get worse, but putting his life in danger since his mood is fine after all.. sounds bad as well.. But his trachea is in really bad condition .. so he must be in pain..
