SHOULD I FEED MY BABY COCKETIEL IF IT THROWS UP


I have a 3 week old cockatiel.And just recently when I fed it,it started throwing up.Is that an indigestion problem? What do I do? Can I do something before it’s too late


Answer:

Hi Kita,

It may be that you over fed him, which can cause him to regurgitate. But it can be very dangerous for him, as he can get food in his lungs. It can also be a sign of a serious infection. I would take him to an avian Vet as soon as possible.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
