Re: Severe Head Trauma - what would you do?

Yep I’m with everyone else here, if you have the means to care for Loki at home I would advise you do that. Once he is home with his flock he may well surprise you with how much progress he makes in recovery. I lost a green cheek last year to a sudden illness and I can tell you I would have done anything to have had even one more day with him. I’ve also had a budgie who had testicular cancer - we would take him to his CAV every few months for “chemo” and he had a wonderful quality of life for almost 2 years until he let us know that he had had enough. It’s your decision of course and I’m no medical expert but where there’s life there’s hope, and I think Loki sounds like a fighter and if he was mine I’d be bringing him home. Sending my warmest wishes and hugs to you and Loki!
