Billy's blood tests have come back. He has had an infection and his white cell count was 13.2 when it should be no more than 8.

The vet said it hasn't affected his liver or kidneys as they are normal.  He asked how he was after the antibiotics and I said he is doing fantastic, so he thinks that it is a normal infection and not a fungal infection like aspergillosis which is harder to show up. He is back for a check up when the antibiotics finish but it looks good as if he is responding to antibiotics given it doesn't look like it is a serious as something like aspergillosis. I am so glad I trusted my instincts and rushed him in.

Thanks for the concern xxxx

He is as normal so I feel that he is cured from the antibiotics, I will still take him for a check up though. So relieved, I love this nutty bird to bits x

OMG I started to read this with my heart in my mouth, as soon as you said about the breathing it worried me, thank goodness he is alright, what a wonderful vet you have.
I'm so pleased for you, you definitely did the right thing and acted quickly.

Yes you were in the back of my mind Angel Feathers as I had read your thread earlier, and told my partner and shown him pictures of Floyd. I said we were so lucky that ours were well and then Billy got ill :0(

I have seen that you might get another in time. If you do I recommend Greylover. My Presley is one of her babies and he is a cracker.

Hope you manage to have some sort of a smile over Xmas. 🌹RIP Floyd🌹
