  1. Guys, does anyone know a site, store, anything.. from which to buy at least one of these type of food in Sweden? The official site from Totally organics had the links for Europe and I think one of them was for Sweden but now they are gone so I need help. Any info will be greatly appreciated:-)
  2. I can understand vet schools buying dead animals but I do not think they do it via e-bay. If you want to sell it to the vets and institutes then you offer animals to them-not via e-bay. The only thing with less taste would be if the seller had an auction for the birds:-(
  3. Yes he would, because I saw him poop the pieces!!!!! So watch out for your birdie!!
  4. No, I'm trying to awake what else could my precious parrot eat while I'm not looking so I can get rid of it right now ;-)
  5. Well, I know it can build up over time depending on what he eats in the future.. That is why I'm keeping an eye on him. And he'll be going on his total check up so we'll know more but I was afraid of him dying here and now and since he didn't change his behavior or his eating, I'm hoping he is really fine. Thank you for worrying. I'll call my vet again.
  6. Well guys, haven't been in touch because Zak and I had some things to resolve. Long story short, I had a state exam and Zak was my moral support and a personal cheerleader:-) He was doing great! Sometimes he even stayed late by my side while I was studying. I passed the exam and Zak passed the questionable period. It means, if he had any intention on having metal poisoning he would already have done it and according to the vet, since his "bag" (where he puts his food) didn't swell he is out off the danger. If his "bag" had swollen that would mean he didn't get all the pieces of the zipper out. He's been playing, showering,cuddling, eating normally, drinking his fluids,all OK so we are out of the woods. The shirt with the zipper went to the trash asap and I'm watching him closely so he wouldn't eat something else he is not supposed to. So, I'm sorry I didn't post sooner, I was waiting what will happen with him because I wanted to avoid the x-ray at any cost and this exam was killing me and all the time with it. Thank you all for sticking in with us!:-)
  7. I know it would. I don't care how much it costs. I'm just deeding the stress that comes with it. That is why I haven't done it already.
  8. Thanks for asking:-) Well, he s the same. drinking quite enough yogurt but not pooping out new pieces :-/ Playing, singing, screaming a bit when hungry... I'm worried that he is not pooping the pieces out.. I don't know. We'll call the vet again.
  9. So, I'm officially on the sick leave so Zak and I are little bit on the down side together. He eats plenty of yogurt in the evening (have no idea why). He ate so much that I thought he would pop! The bit I don't like at all is that his poop became really green today. He doesn't have a diarrhea, but very dark green poop. I don't like that one bit. And he didn't poop any new zipper pieces:-( I'm very worried again.. :,-( But on the bright side, he is still playing, he cuddled a lot today. Haven't seen him/heard him drink water..? Maybe I just missed it. Will keep an closer eye on him tomorrow. I slept a good part of the day today anyway (but he didn't go to the cage at that time-he kept an close eye on me;-))
  10. No new pieces guys but he is looking and acting fine. He ate a lot of yogurt today. Kinda threw all the fresh cheese away but I have feeling he's gonna like it because it is similar taste to yogurt. Now he is just being picky (like his parent;-)). I even bought a baby food-mashed fruit without sugar. It is denser than the regular juice so he didn't like it ( he didn't like my home made version also). It was my attempt to get him to like some other shapes of his food. Will try again. Ate a bit of oat. Well, all in all we are hanging in there! Thank you all once more for being so supportive and caring. It means a lot:-)
  11. I get right on it:-) Thanks:-)
  12. zak just pooped two of the pieces!!! :-)
  13. My vet answered my last email. She said something like, if Zak did eat a lot of heavy metals, symptoms would be visible right away, so sooner rather than later,and if he did take little inside him, the chronic poisoning I can stop by being careful about his surroundings-I threw all the zippers away,and I'll have to change some locks on the cage too. He has a padlock on the top of the cage which he doesn't touch but I don't want to risk it. Any suggestions where I could find a type of lock which is made from a safe material? Also she says that the pieces must come out but haven't found anything yet. Well, that is not entirely true, on Sunday I found 3 little, flat, brown pieces but I ruled them out as part of the zipper. Can he really melt the metal with his stomach acid? I haven't thought of that till now. He still eats normally, drinks OK- not to much, sings/plays. Everything seems normal except me freaking out:-/ So, the right away poisoning kinda puts me little bit at ease (since it didn't happen-he doesn't have any symptoms), but we'll see.
