If your bird is still eating, offer a bland diet; this could include cooked rice or pasta and ensure that any fresh foods are thoroughly washed to avoid further gastrointestinal upset. However, if your bird is not eating, this is a more urgent concern as birds have high metabolic rates and can deteriorate quickly without nutrition.
It's also important to remove any potential toxins or hazards from the bird's environment. This includes ensuring that there are no plants, foods, or small objects that could be ingested and cause harm.
