Signalment:10-month-old Rose-breasted Cockatoo
History:The bird presented for seizure-like activity and a 4/5 heart murmur. A CT scan revealed poor bone density, increased fat stores, and an enlarged liver indicating potential nutritional deficiencies, increased caloric intake, and a lack of exercise.
Gross Lesions:Throughout the myocardium of the right, and less severely the left, ventricles were several multifocal to coalescing, pinpoint to 5 mm diameter, firm, white, slightly raised foci. The crop was moderately dilated and contained a large amount of thick, white to tan feed material. The proventriculus was mildly dilated and flaccid.
