I think better but not sure. She is fluffed and sleeping a lot and while stronger is still weak. I am still concerned. The vet keeps referencing her age and I fear what we are seeing just might be her just getting old. We have had her 7 years when we rescued her and we really do not know how old she is. Still she is still a happy bird just not as active as normal.

Unhappy

Bogie started fluffing up more often and this is when we took him to the vet to have this checked out. He received vitamin shots and this helped, but he went back to fluffing up again. He was 10 years old.


The vet tried everything. Finally, he took a full body X-Ray and found Bogie had a lining surrounding his lungs. This is what did him in. He struggled to breathe normally, then he fluffed up and was temporarily breathing better.


Eventually, the lining thickened and we had to put Bogie down. You know the rest.


Tests were done, but it wasn't until the X-Ray that his illness could be explained.

I suspect we may be heading this direction. Even if we get her past this event I will not be surprised if we see her sick again soon. We went though something like this with Bo, I dislike this part of pet ownership.

Anya will become famous soon enough

Oh, dear. I hate hearing this. I have such a soft spot for little girl birds.

I do not doubt for a minute that you will do everything you can to continue taking the best care of her. Because Jules is getting to be a senior birdie now, you may have to start adjusting her cage to make life easier for her. I came across this video a while ago and I thought this woman was amazing at how well she looked after her 64-year-old sick bird by adjusting its cage to help it get around. You mentioned that Jules has not been hitting her perches if that continues, or she later starts having problems with balance, etc., there are some ideas on this video that may help.
