? My cockatiel is puffed up shivering and breathing hard with his mouth open this is been going on off and on for almost a week and now seems to be continuous we do not have a vet that handles birds in my tiny real town is there anything I can get on chewy or over the counter to help him and what could this be a respiratory infection?

I can only imagine your frustration of NOT having an avian vet handy! The GOOD news is: if it were a respiratory infection, I seriously doubt your bird would have made it a full week! Sadly, when they do get those kinds of infections, they go pretty fast. I've lost two to that dreaded sickness! The BAD news is: your bird IS sick and is in dire need of avian help! Are there ANY bigger towns near by that might have the kind of vet you need? Chewy is useless and anything over the counter is just a gamble. Wish I could be of more help. Sure hope your tiel pulls through!
