This is our Alfie a few years ago. Our vet is an avian vet, he advised us to go to a place who specialises in exotics but weren't impressed, mainly reptiles! The owner actually has parrots and doesn't use UV lighting or heat. The trouble is with the vet I'm really not one for going out and leaving heat sources on, just how I am, I don't mind lighting though. I definitely will get the UV lamp, I'll be ordering one today. I do feel, although he's poorly, he'd be worse off with the heat because I'd only have it on when I'm there, so he's going to get warm then cool, then warm then cool, so I think he'd be worse off. Also at night he's covered so there wouldn't be a heat lamp on anyway. Thank you for all the comments though, I'll let you know how the "poo" tests are, when we get results.
