Everytime with out a doubt When Kiwi climbs down and sits in my lap she vomits what could be causing this? Does anyone have any ideas?

It sounds to me like she is regurgatating for you {feeding you} and its a sign of affection. Is she bobbing her head up and down when she does it?

Are you sure it is vomiting and not regurgitation? Vomiting is usually accompanied by violent head swings and the vomitus thrown in every direction and can signal a sick bird. Regurgitation is part of allo feeding by bonded birds. If you are a mate surrogate and the bird is laying in your lap, regurgitation might be common. How long has this been going on? Many birds are hormonal at this time of year and will display this behavior.

Here is another recent discussion:

I freaked out the 2 times Scarlett vomited and was on the phone to emergency vets on a sat night. If this has been going on for 3 MONTHS(!!!!!!!!) you need to take her to the vet ASAP!!!!!!!!! She could have a burn or infection in her crop from the exessive heat she breathed in while stuck in the car!

SM is right - this bird needs to be seen by an avian vet IMMEDIATELY! I cannot believe this has been going on for 3 months and you haven't sought medical attention. This is going to sound harsh but it needs to be said - if you cannot afford proper veterinary care, you have no business having pets.

I would live on peanut butter and ramen noodles for a year before Scarlett would ever go without treatment for something this serious! The reason the vomit is liquid now is she is probably starving!

Oh My!!!
I agree...you need to always have a plan in order when you open your home to animals.Yes they are expensive but it is your duty.We have emergency funds set aside and they have come in handy a couple of times.You never know when something is going to happen and you don't want to have to scramble for finances at the last minute that is using up valuable time in caring for you companion.I know things happen and you don't always have money but please take that advice and prepare for the worste.Let us know how things go. I'll be praying all will be okay.

Get her to the vet NOW. I would be concerned about some type of brain damage or toxin problem from the accident you described 3 months ago. If the vomiting is now liquid rather than solid, then this is getting progressively worse. Think like when we throw up, first it is food, then liquid and dry heaves when nothing else is there. Your bird can get very dehyrated fast and will possibly need IV's. I took my Harry in when he was vomiting the liquid and projectile vomiting other stuff. Take her to the vet NOW; it is better to be safe than sorry......

Our vet will charge full price if she thinks you've stalled getting your sick bird in.

It's cheaper to go in immediately when something is wrong instead of waiting 3 months shocked until you've got more money.

I read on a previous post that you had Nana to the vets on 11/20 for his scabs. Why didn't you ask about Kiwi then if it has been going on for three months? Nancy

Sad to hear about your accident. I personally would have just broken the car window to get to my babies..does that sound crazy?

If she is truely vomiting she needs to see a vet. But if she is regurging for you, that is hormonal behavior. Do you know how to tell the difference? What does he vomit look like? If she is regurging she will be bringing up undigested food from her crop. If she is vomiting it will usually look more liquidy

Praying for your Kiwi..

Kiwinana, there may be installment plans to pay off at the vets. Try checking if you have not done so. Also, I believe that some vets would be willing to work out some payment scheme if the bird is really sick. Get your bird to see a vet first, then talk to them about some scheme if $ is really tight. That's what I would do if in your shoes. Hope that she's ok.
