Should I take my bird to see the vet?
It's a Sun Conure. She was 8 months old when I bought her and I've had this bird for about 5 months.
Today, she has been acting strange. Normally she's all over the place but all she wants to do is sleep. Now liquid is pouring out her beak nostrils.
The reason I'm questioning this is that I paid $375 for the bird but the vet visit will be $130 (35% of the bird price) plus whatever medicine or extra care above the consultation that they give.
I'm not an emotional person so I'm trying to decide this logically. If I wait, will she get better by herself? Or, will she die without care? I don't know.
What is your opinion? Should I spend the money on a chance she could die without the care? Or, should I take a gamble and risk it by keeping her home? Are there any third options I don't know about?
