Dark green loose motion in ringneck baby

My ringneck male baby had loose motions so we gave him metronidazole….but now it has dark green loose motions with no solid content..what can i do?


Hi Saad,

I am very sorry your bird is sick. I can only advise you to take him to an Avian vet as soon as possible. There can be many causes for this, and we can’t guess. The Vet needs to be able to run tests to determine the cause. You should not give medicine when you don’t know what is wrong with a bird, because it can cause harm. The Vet needs to determine what medicine your bird needs.

Take care,
