always was told this was normal

so just to get this straight, it isnt all the time, just when she flies for a long distance or multiple short distances

after ice goes for a bit of a cruise, she tends to do a squeek/wheeze to catch her breath kind of?

her previous owner said she did this normally and has always done it since she could fly,

im just wondering if it is any thing i should be worried about?

i can try and get a video of it tommorow if you guys want to see it first hand

thanks all again <3

I've been told/read/heard that it's normal as well. As long as she isn't doing it all the time or showing other signs of a respiratory infection of some sort.

Hopefully she's just worrying you and there isn't anything wrong! Good luck at the vet. ^_^

I'd say that was normal. My birds occasionally squeak and pant when they have flown if they don't fly as much. The aviary birds don't do it most likely because they're constantly able to fly

Bob collapses in a heap on the floor.
He's Mr unfit cos he climbs everywhere and doesn't fly much
I wouldn't worry.

Just think of it this way Kennedy... humans that are unfit will wheeze and breathe heavily/etc after exercising. It'd be the same for an unfit bird.

I am sorry I do not agree, birds should not be wheezing. If he seems out of breath and breathing fast due to flight and lack of exercise, yes that is normal.... but to hear a wheezing sound... that is not good. I'd have him checked to be sure.

Ya, it's open mouth breathing with a squeaking sound.

Ice was takin to the bird sitters, and I told her to watch for it, they do take birds to the bet if they are worried about its health. I tried to get her in for an appointment yesterday but all the vets were booked up :/

I'll try after I get back to book an appointment

I think it is a good idea to have him checked immediately upon your return. I have birds who will go into full flight through the house and be tired and sit and breath faster then normal.. but never hear any wheezing. It could be the beginning signs of an infection or something.

I'd say take him to the vet, just to be sure, especially since there are varying opinions on the forum. Let us know what's up if you do!
