Well not so impressed with my vet .Everything always gos wrong on weekends[they have a emergency vet for after hrs but they just do dogs and cats]So I thought I would research as much as I could to have some sort of knowledge of what we could try.When I first took Harlow we knew she was very under weight and a very sick bird.He put her on a liquid antibiotic.A day later we had her biood work back and he changed her medicine to half a pill that started with a B.[He mentioned nothing else ]No try to increase something to put weight on her,or even check back in a couple days to see if shes responding]Well the first day when she had both medicines in her it gave her a big boost .But after that half a pill once a day she went downhill.By sunday she was bad [I could see more weight loss
]She wanted to be left alone,she was at the top of the cage facing the corner.I knew I had to do something and do what I felt was best for her[I didnt feel like it was a priority to the vet]I know he might not be able to save her but I have to at least try everything I can.I know animals dont live as long as us but shes young and its to soon
That Sunday night I gave her another half a pill and she started eating.Monday morning I spoke with the vet and told him everything I wanted to do.Now shes on 4 doses a day and Im feeding small amounts of baby parrot formula 2 a day along with anything else she wants[and he didnt suggest any of this]Shes better more energy ,vocal and eating .Will this save her I dont know shes pretty bad.Im spending as much time as I can with her .Its hard to go to work .My game plan is if I can build up her energy.I found another vet but we would have to travel and he wants to do more bloodwork[thats hard on a bird]shes too weak now.The moral of my story is go with your gut feeling and dont stop till things make sense to you!!
