There are a few reasons why your parakeet may be breathing heavily. It could be due to the temperature of the room, exercise, or an illness. If the room is too hot or cold, your parakeet will start to pant to regulate its body temperature.
If they’ve been flying around a lot, they’ll also breathe heavier than normal. Lastly, if your parakeet is sick, it may have labored breathing as well.
If you notice your parakeet breathing heavily, it could be a sign of illness. While heavy breathing can sometimes be normal, especially after exercise if your bird is panting or wheezing, it’s time to take them to the vet.
Panting and wheezing are both signs of respiratory distress, which can be caused by many things including infection, heart disease, stress, or even something as simple as allergies.
If you’re not sure what’s causing your bird’s heavy breathing, the best thing to do is make an appointment with an avian veterinarian.
Bird is Breathing Heavy And Not Moving?
If you notice that your bird is breathing heavier than normal and not moving around as much, it could be a sign of illness. Birds are very good at hiding their illnesses, so it’s important to pay close attention to any changes in behavior.
If your bird is breathing heavily and not moving, take him to the vet right away for an examination.
