My African Grey, Gracey, passed away in the car on my way to my home in florida on 12/13/13. She was 15 year old. I've been through all the emotions. I took her to a local avian vet to have a necropsy performed. Apparently my little girl was extremely sick. She had a very enlarged heart, very enlarged liver, enlarged spleen (chlamidia test is being performed) And she passed from blood in her lungs. This is usually a sign of teflon/inhalant poisoning. So after thinking and thinking what I had changed, the only thing I could think of is that I started reusing my mister, in the bedroom where we all slept, with a few drops of eucalyptus oil. The vet is certain that this is what caused her bleeding into the lungs, which killed her.
It hurts, but i need to inform all in the bird community that natural oils are NOT SAFE
Very Sad, I will miss her very much, she was a sweetheart.
