Sudden death
« on: October 27, 2013, 10:03:45 PM »

So ive had my bird for 7 years and I wake up this morning to find he has died :( So I am devastated about this and really am just looking for some opinions as I am of course blaming myself. He has a good varied diet as he would refuse to eat pellets. Sometimes he eats very juicy fruits too quickly which obviously upsets his stomach and will retreat to the back of the cage when he feels ill. But there were very dark droppings in his cage and he was in his usual spot at the front of the cage and he has not eaten any dark grapes ect in the past few days BUT I did buy him a few new toys from the pet shop a few days ago which he has had fun destroying the past few days so I wondered perhaps he swallowed something he could not digest. Any thoughts much appreciated thanks.

Gutted for you! I know how upset I'd be if I was in your shoes

As above, I'd get an autopsy done. At least you will know then

I'm so sorry for your loss :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

I lost one of my birds to a heart attack earlier this year so I understand how you are feeling :flowers: :flowers:

Dark droppings can indicate a liver problem, but the only way to be sure is to have an autopsy done :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

So sorry to hear of your loss. Sometimes we dont pick up on things quickly enough to see when a birds not well, please dont blame yourself. It could have been anything,  it would be hard to tell without an autopsy.  Once sgsin, I'm so sorry  :cheekkiss:
