These cases can become critical quickly.

Jennifer Graham, DVM, DABVP (Avian/Exotic Companion Mammal), associate professor of zoological animal medicine at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, says birds with gastrointestinal (GI) problems may present with diarrhea.

Discolored stool, the presence of seeds in droppings, and increased urinary production are all additional signs that there may be a GI problem.
