Yes, I remember - and I know of two more birds that also ended up dead after starting the treatment. The greatest majority of avian vets are gung ho on prescribing mammal medicines for parrots but they either do not work well or at all on them. And statins are VERY hard on the liver and these birds all have advanced liver damage so I really do not know why the vets keep on prescribing them...
