Things appear to be getting worse

Not only am I treating my birds for psittacosis, I am now back at the vets first thing tomorrow morning. My sweet, lovely Darwin has something very wrong. It sounds like his voice is breaking which is usually a symptom of aspergillosis. He's a very hard to keep clean kinda bird, but he get's disinfected daily as it is

I emailed my vet about him and he said don't wait, bring him in first thing in the morning. I don't want to lose another bird and I think if I lost Darwin I'd melt or implode. He's my everything

Will update tomorrow after he's been in

Thank you everybody! I hope everything is okay with him. He stuffed his face, rolled around and threw himself at me numerous times while feeling poorly so fingers and toes crossed he'll be fine. Just a precaution

As I've already said, I'm so, so, so very sorry to hear this! This must be so tough on
you! I wish there's some way I could help. I'll keep you and Darwin and the rest of
your flock in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks, all. I have LITERALLY just walked through the door and grabbed my laptop. Toby gave me three options

1) Leave it, see how he goes - NO
2) Treat him for aspergillosis and fungal infections so anything can clear up
3) Put him under for an x-ray and endoscopy

Well, I went for option 2 for now, as Toby thinks he may be too small for an endoscopy but we will see. The third option will cost 300 for all of that testing and looking but if he doesn't improve I'm going to have to go ahead and do it. Funnily enough as soon as he saw my vet he pounced on him and became his usual self and the 'sore throat' sound cleared right up. Pain in the butt! But I'm treating him for now anyways and he said note any changes and bring him straight in if he gets any worse. For now though he seems pretty happy and lory like

His treatment is for 6 weeks, as well as the 5 weeks he has left of his psittacosis treatment. That poor thing is gunna hate me!

I'm thinking positive though, and I'll keep everybody updated

Well, at least he's still acting ok... Fingers crossed he clears up and it was nothing serious to begin with... Thoughts and prayers are with you!
