Has anyone ever cared for a parrot with diabetes? If so do you have any suggestions for diet? I'm going to be looking after a Blue Crown Conure for a couple of weeks that was just diagnosed this past week. She is 27 years old and in fairly good health. After a week of decreased fruit and carbs in her diet her sugar level came down. At this point they will try to maintain low sugar levels through the diet only. I do know that it is extremely rare to come across diabetes in birds. This case is the first in my vets career of 11 years. Thanks for any info.
