What would cause sudden paralysis of the feet of a 5 week old linneated parakeet. My friend is an old hand at hand feeding and brought this baby home a week ago from another breeder? Are we looking at a vitamin or calcium deficency in the parents?
There could be any number of things causing it from injury to genetic illness to malnutrition. He needs to go to an emergency vet ASAP. Until then keep him calm, keep him warm, and keep him hydrated so he has the best chance of pulling thru
