Conure Health

Postby ChicagoBirdMan » Mon Jun 10, 2019 11:08 am

I have a green cheek conure, Jake, that is about six years old that has a high liver count and a very high cholesterol count. He is on a very low fat diet and takes holistic medicines from Animal Essentials that was recommended by our avian vet. He takes Liver Defense for his liver and Heart Defense and Mushroom Defense for his cholesterol. Even on the medicine and restricted diet his cholesterol continues to be very high. I also have a second conure, Irie, who is about the same age is on no medication and has been on the same diet as Jake and has no problems with any of her blood count numbers. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions of what else I can do to bring Jake’s numbers down please let me know. We love Jake and do not want to lose him prematurely. Right now he acts like a normal conure but the vet said if his numbers keep going up it will kill him. Thank you in advance for any help.
