What a very difficult situation! While it may be kinder in the long run for the bird, I am very sorry for your friend's loss given everything else she has been through recently.

While grief is the price we pay for having had such love in our lives your friend sounds like she has had more than her fair share of sadness lately.

I hope in time your friend will appreciate that the bird is no longer in pain from the leg or suffering torment from the plucking. Even from this great distance away, I think she did her best.

I hope she has some support close by at this distressing time.

Re: Injured CAG is dead

Iíve been following the story since the start and I feel so sad that the CAG passed away. For whatever short period that he was there with his owner, he was incredibly loved and cherished. Often, the best of the best leave us too early. Atleast, heís in a better place, flying freely now.
My deepest condolences for your friend. She needs nothing but support right now.

Re: Injured CAG is dead

I copied all your posts and sent her an email. She cannot talk on the phone right now without sobbing. Have encouraged her to join us on this forum, but she's not one for social media. Thanks so much everyone for your kind wishes. You all are so good!

Re: Injured CAG is dead

Do not forget about yourself you are there in person!
I can only write some words and send positive thoughts - you are the person of action!
You are there! (and I for one am gratefull for that, more than you know -- she is lucky to have you in her life)

Re: Injured CAG is dead

Awe, I'm so sorry to hear about Nellie. And I feel horrible for your friend, who was trying to do everything she could for Nellie. What a terrible time for your friend to go through. Birds in-general are just so fragile when it comes to Anesthesia, Blood-Loss, and just the general Stress of surgery...I hope for the day when we've finally developed a "Bird-Safe" Anesthesia; it's getting better, but far from there...

***This is actually a very good learning-experience for people who own parrots who are "Pluckers" and/or just have little to no feathers on their wings bilaterally, which is quite common. We as people don't realize how much birds depend on their wings for pretty-much ALL of their movements, especially their balance and stability...So for a bird who has no wing-feathers for balance, stability, or to simply break their fall/glide to the floor, they are essentially wide-open to all kinds of injuries from constant falling. And trying to get them to learn to use their legs instead of their wings may or may not happen over-time, but chances are they are going to have falls...So it's up to us as their owners to look at accidents such as Nellie's and learn from them, and try to take precautions for our birds that we would NEVER normally think to make...So we thank your friend and Nellie for what other bird owners can learn from this devastating loss of a family member...

Re: Injured CAG is dead

OMG, wow - how horrible. This story actually made me cry! I hope my mother in laws CAG doesn't turn to plucking This would horrify me!

By the way, I am in VA and Stahl is a good vet. I prefer Pender Vet, they are very adept at emergencies and surgeries. My comet had a surgery for an injury and he did fantastic. They worked with me to care for him at home immediately following so I could keep the cost of the surgery down. I could call for instructions on anything at any time. They were very helpful.
