A bit over a month ago, I did a post about how a heat source helped stabilise my elderly galah when he suddenly fell ill. He had a minor infection, which he has recovered from.
Unfortunately though, there was a reason that a minor infection was such a major problem. A normal bird, would have coped with a minor infection a lot more easily – the fact that he didn’t showed that something else was going on.
When something goes wrong with a bird, it can deteriorate into a crisis very quickly. It has been one of those weeks for me again!
With 9 birds in my personal flock and plenty of rescue work; it’s getting to the point where not only does my vet know my birds and I (without having to look up our names in his computer), but I think he could almost tell you my star sign, favourite colour and what everyone in my family had ..
