Billy is poorly
« on: December 04, 2013, 10:07:05 PM »

I posted earlier about Billy's toe. I thought this is why he was quiet. He has been doing this wide yawning thing and his chest is rasping. He had a really scared look in his eye and I thought back to Angel Feathers sad story the other day.

I have rushed him to vets now. The vet says just by the way he is stood that he is poorly. They are going to give him oxygen till the avian specialist comes in to do tests. Please pray for Billy 🙏😥

Absolutely gutted John, he has had a miserable 10 years, we rescued him and he has been poorly twice in 8 month. Worried as I have two other birds and I hope it's not contagious aswell 😢

Think positive, I know it's easier said than done but just think about bringing Billy home well.

Presley is looking ok, but he can tell something isn't right. It's so quiet in the house without him :0(

Update: Billy has been seen by avian vet, he said he can't see any signs of him being unwell this morning and asked us about fumes, air fresheners ect. Terry said he had been quiet about a day and half and said he had aftershave on and used a little polish on the TV (I didn't know this). The vet asked if he was insured but I said it doesn't matter about the money and have asked the vet to do the chest X-rays and blood tests though x

That`s such good news.
If he seems better today I would bring him home, birds deteriorate very quickly in the vets becoming depressed and if they are not going to do anything that you can`t do yourself, I`d have him home.

Sounds like a reaction to something, maybe even something he ate combined with the aftershave and polish, you have to be so careful don`t you.

I`m really pleased he`s looking well xx

Thats good news Jo, hope he continues to improve today and you can have him back home. Its probably best to have the further tests done just to be sure.

He is doing the tests and I will know at 4. Ian the vet said we can pick him up if he stays as he is. He is really fantastic and I would recommend him to anyone, he is big into enrichment and gives fabulous advice. I want the tests so we can see if anything is occurring from the nearly 10 years before he came with us x

We are waiting for the results but Ian Calvart ( god in my eyes) says it's best he comes home for now till we get the results. Ian is so lovely, he rung me and the other half to repeat the same thing. Anyone near Newport get your bird to him, he is a cracking guy, bird lover and professional. He eases my mind knowing he is there !!! X
