Fine then suddenly limp on floor arched back, gasping for air!!!!


We just found our pigeon on the floor, gasping for air and very limp.
I have no idea what happened, she was perfectly normal one minute and suddenly we come back to her like this!!!!

She is breathing very fast and closes her eyes.
Where I live, bird vets are almost non-existent and have been unable to find any emergency help.

What can be the problem?!

She hasn't laid eggs in a looong time, and last night we brought her a male pigeon that we bought. We kept the male pigeon inside a cage and left her in her usual space outside the cage so she could become accostumed to him.
Everything seemed normal this morning but then when we came back from lunch she was on the floor!

Could this mean something?
HELP!!! We are desperate!

Pigeons don't just drop dead. She had something that wasn't picked up. If she was laying and stopped then maybe a reproductive problem.
How old was she? Was she mated up before?
Does she get a calcium/D3 suupplement?
Did you take the eggs when she did lay, or leave them with her?

She is 5 years old. She used to lay 2 eggs every month, until her partner died last year. Then she stopped laying eggs and just "fell in love" with my husband, cooing whenever she saw him, but laid no eggs since Nov./December last year.

Last night we brought a new partner for her. I dunno if this activated something in her hormones or what.
It just seems so strange and sudden!

Her droppings now seem to be clear and opaque white/yellowish. She is not eating, only drinking water.

I have put her in a box, full of warm towels to keep her comfy.

She is still breathing very fast and looks in pain. She also feels heavy.

Maybe she broke some eggs inside?

Didn't answer my questions.
Did you take her eggs away or let her sit on them for the 18 days or so?
Does she get a calcium/D3 supplement?
Is she drinking a lot of water?
Could be reproductive. And it could be canker. She needs calcium and D3. But if it is canker, then Metronidazole, 50 mg. once daily for 7 to 10 days.

Here is a link with some bird vets in P.R.

You would have to call them and see if they will see a pet pigeon. Always tell them it is a pet and not a feral.
