The purpose of the present study was to evaluate clinically normal African grey parrots (AGP, Psittacus
erithacus) for adverse clinical signs, changes in complete blood count (CBC) and plasma biochemical analyte values, and renal lesions that may occur after receiving meloxicam by IM injection at 0.
The genera Psittacus, Amazona, and Nymphicus are predisposed to atherosclerosis, whereas the genera Cacatua and Ara are less susceptible.
Information was extracted from the databases for 6 genera (Myiopsitta [Quaker parrots], Psittacus [African grey parrots], Amazona [Amazon parrots], Nymphicus [cockatiels], Cacatua [cockatoos], and Ara [macaws]) for plasma cholesterol levels, lipoprotein (HDL, LDL) levels, sex, and age.
The pattern in triglyceride differences was similar to that of cholesterol, except for Psittacus, which was in the lowest triglyceride level group but in the high cholesterol group.
