vet visit :)

Post by kanundra » Wed Jun 05, 2013 8:28 am

So, Bobby is in his smaller cage, awaiting to go to the vets. Hubby got him in there with some treats and trickery. (he will never fall for it again)

I'm a little nervous, I did want hubby to come with me but he's working. Oh well.

Wish us luck, and I'll post what the Vet thinks in a little while.

Best of luck ma'am, but I doubt there is anything to fear. Your feathered trouble maker will be back to annoying the piss out of you in no time. :)

Thanks, just got back...

The vet said he looks in good health. He's moulting which is why I've found the feathers. He has been clipped. All the way through all feathers. So when they grow back they're a little weird for him.

And the bent feather along with the one next to it, started bleeding as soon as the vet spread his wings properly. So he had to have two blood feathers pulled. Poor mite.

I've to watch them now, and make sure there is no more bleeding. As the vets receptionist rang me back panicking as the vet found blood. Well there was as he was bleeding when we got there. eek.... glad I did have an appointment.

Bobby is now sulking. I hope he will be okay with me after this.

He'd probably be happy with some fruit and a mist bath :) If there's nothing else I can say about birds, while they seem fragile, they are in fact very resilient for their size. As mentioned, he'll be back to annoying you in no time. :)

Thank you. He's been out eating and throwing food around as usual.

I'll keep you posted on how he is tomorrow. For now he's preening on his top perch. :)

He has gone to bed early and is puffed up asleep on one foot. Would this be normal for a pretty stressful day?

Judging from my time caring for my former conure, it is expected the bird to sleep 12-15hrs in a day. Puffed up and with one foot up is actually one of the most normal positions for a parrot to sleep in - of any species. As for whether the conditions are normal... I know if I went to the doctor and I was just bleeding, being poked and prodded all over by people I don't know... first thing I'd want to do after punching them in the face would be getting some food, and going to sleep myself. LOL

It's fine. :) Actually somewhat surprised to be honest you hadn't experienced that sleep pose with your parrot before, it's one of the most common I've encountered.

Rocky's trip to the vet was such an ordeal for him he went to sleep in the travel cage after all the action, while the vet and I were talking. The highlight of the trip, for me, was when they stuffed him into the bird-weighing bucket. I'm still laughing!

Our vet has a perch on the scales, but I guess he must do something else with the less tame birds...

Oh, sorry. Yeah I know he always sleeps on one foot. I was meaning is going to bed early and wanting to sleep more, normal.

I guess it is, as he's just back to his normal self today. He's just pigged out on fresh veggies and fruit, regurgitated for his fav toy and is now playing in his cage lol.

:) Thanks for all the replies
