My flyer is vomiing

Postby Wanda » Tue May 29, 2012 11:57 am

I have a flyer who is about 8 years old. She has always been healthy until this morning when she got up and stayed awake ane out in her cage, not very active, just moping around. After she was up for about an hour, I noticed her go to the floor of her cage and vomited several times. I know they are incapable of vomiting but she did. I could see it come out her mouth. She is drinking water often but I will offer her pedialyte.

I don't think it is anything she has eaten. Her diet is healthy and has been the same and my othe two flyers are fine. Seems to have come on suddenly. She has finally gone to bed but keeps getting back up. Any suggestions?

Wanda, they can vomit as you have seen. Hydrating her is the best thing. I would separate her from the others until she is better. You can give her some Pepto Bismo to soothe her stomach.

Thanks Joan. She is caged separately but beside another flyer.
She is still awake but seems comfortable in her bed.

I concur! If you can get the pepto down her, it will help. If she swallowed something indigestible, she may keep vomiting as long as it stays in the stomach; an Xray may be in order then.

Thank you David. She seems to be resting comfortably now. Hasn't been up this afternoon.
