An update on Neos Necropsy . Our vet called us today with what she found. She told us she saw his stomach was dilated and he had some undigested pellets. He died from PDD (proventricular dilation disease, or macaw wasting disease. ) it attacks the digestive system, mainly the intestines and stomach, paralyzing it and making the bird unable to digest food. This causes weight loss, this explains why no matter how much I fed him his weight would never get to a healthy number. There is no cure, no vaccine, and no test you can do for PDD. Our vet thinks hes probably had this all his life, and that the disease can be passed from parent to chick. She is sending some of his tissue out for further examination. She is our favorite vet and she cried with us. We will be receiving his cremation remains in about 2 weeks. The other birds should be okay. Im going to be watching for signs but so far nobody is displaying unusual behavior. We disinfected the room and took apart his cage and his toys to wash them and give them to Eckles our blue front amazon and our current freeflight trainee. He will continue Neos journey, even though his life was cut short. Please keep us in your thoughts. Thank you. #macaw #Neo #monkparrot #whitecockatoo #pink #salmoncrestedcockatoo #moluccancockatoo #africangrey #freeflight #scarletmacaw #conures #sunconure #greencheekconure #cockatiel #lutinocockatiel #greycockatiel #piedcockatiel #par#parrotsofig #parrotsofinstagram #flighted #parrot #lovemybird #bird #feathers #quakerparrot #amazonparrot #littlecorellacockatoo #umbrellacockatoo #peaceofparrots #loveyourpetday
