re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Oh WOW!!! I didnít know your Quaker was missing, I feel like Iím living under a rock somehow. And how crazy is this whole turn of events! Just...WOW!

Iím so sorry to hear about Neptune , and will pray that he is found safe and sound.

In the mean time...CHILLS...thank goodness you were there at that moment. I know you will do everything you can for this new unexpected addition. Blue boy is one unlucky, lucky parakeet. Unlucky because...well...the cat, but so so lucky to have found you!

Tetracycline

His wound goes from under his eye right next to and the full length of beak . Its swollen now darn it.....

Since I just had to grab him to treat him. I change him from being really thin, to a living skeleton!!!! OMG it breaks my heart.... he was thirsty the first time i treated him so it was easier. This time he was like no way

BLUE Boy has pepped up tho. Now standing, and perched on his highest perch, and not fluffed now. He went to the food dish several times and ate a little each time.
So keep him in your prayers.

Yes my love Neptune, oh i want him back. The people who saw the bird said they got in their car and drove to my sign that was several miles away st home depot, because they remembered seeing it. So that's great thst people are aware of Neptune being lost.

The cat was a mixed blessing maybe I wouldn't have been able to catch him on my own. And the weather is now terrible. Poor little baby's time was running out.

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Do you have spray millet you can offer? That is usually accepted when other food items are not.



Swelling is to be expected with any trauma. Is it a puncture or a gash?


Come on Blue Boy, you can do this little guy!!!

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

One more thing, do you have anything you can offer him for pain? Often taking the edge off the pain will cheer them enough to eat and such. Poor guy

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Oof. Punctures are tough to clean. Hopefully the antibiotic staves off infection. Wow, Blue Boy is sure lucky the cat's owner was there!! <3

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

yeah.....its scary...
I moved the millit spray right next to his new favorite perch spot, and he has been munching.

I will give him meds again in an hour or so....my vet said to give him a loading dose then two more times today.

Hopefully he is strong tomorrow, and stays well.
