Ive got a 1 month old baby cockatiel and I am still hand feeding him/her.. Im using a syringe with a 1 inch rubber tube and while im feeding him/her, it accidentally swallowed the rubber tube!
Would the rubber tube be digested and the bird will be alright?
What should I do?
He swallowed about 5hours ago and he still seems alright..
I checked with my Vet and he said that it cannot be operated as its a small chick and mostly the chick would push it out.

Please let me know if any of you had run into the same issue ? I could see an older thread on the same issue and it seems the bird is fine after 24 hours, but its
not clear if it is Ok after.. If anyone know please suggest.
