Diagnosing Seizures in a American Singer Canary

If your American Singer Canary is acting disoriented, cannot grasp his perch, is falling in his cage, is convulsing or having sporadic fits then call your vet right away. Your canary may be suffering from seizures. A seizure is a disorder in the brain that can cause involuntary behavior changes, convulsions, and disorientation. Seizures are common in a variety of birds and parrots. Most birds and parrots that seize end up recovering within a few hours and resume their normal behaviors. Your vet; however, may want to examine your American Singer Canary to determine what may have triggered the seizure. Diagnosing a seizure may involve a series of physical and neurological tests. If a cause is not found, the seizure is referred to as idiopathic epilepsy or a genetic condition. Once a diagnosis is made, your vet Flatwoods, KY staff should be able to determine a possible course of treatment. Visit their site to learn more.
