Abstract:

A 3 ½ month old juvenile Sun Conure (Aratinga solstitialis) was brought to the Avian and Exotic Pet Unit of Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex (TVCC), Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital (MVCTH) with a history of abdominal swelling, uncoordinated gait, inappetance, lethargy, poor feather quality and diarrhea. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed enlarged liver with rounded borders with free fluid in abdomen. The bird was treated for nonspecific liver disease since the owner did not consent for blood collection and biopsies. Oral amoxicillin @ 50 mg/kg b.wt. for 7 days, oral frusemide @ 8 mg/kg b.wt. BID for 10 days, oral multivitamins fortified with essential amino acids @ dose rate of 0.2 ml BID was advised for one month. The bird showed progressive improvement in the fluid reduction and increased appetite during the following visits.
