What should I do for my parakeet with diarrhea?

The bird has had diarrhea for 3 days.

Make sure it gets ample amounts of liquids, diarrhea will kill a bird in no time if it is not drinking. Your vet may be able to supply you with a suppliment to either put in its water or give to him orally to help alleviate the diarrhea. If he has held out for three days you have a strongbird!

You should see a vet about the problem. Loose stool mean he is taking in more water then food, he needs a very good and healthy diet.

If your bird has had diarrhea for three days it is a sign that something more life threatening could be going on. I suggest that you take your parakeet to the vet. However, if your parakeet eats a lot of fruit every day that can also be the cause.

This might have something to do with what you are feeding the bird. Diet is usually the cause of diarrhea. Consult with your vet to help your parakeet, if it is not the diet then it could be something serious.

Diarrhea in birds is a very dangerous situation. Make sure, the bird is in a warm, draft free place. If his feathers are fluffed, and he looks like a ball, he is too cold. You need to get medication immediately from a pet shop or veterinarian.
