Re: Help please, one eye closed

Good Morning,

It was really good last night,fully open all evening till he got sleepy.This morning it looks good too, but when he is sleepy he still closing it some of the time. I am waiting for the Vet to open, we are PST time, and calling them and updating them. I will take advice from them if I should come in today or what to watch for.

Lucky for me they are open on Sundays too and do emergency visits as well.
My precious baby, he got on my shoulder as soon as I got home from work last night. I think we have a new routine!!He is eating now and very active, I love weekends home with him!!

Re: Help please, one eye closed

Aww! You're lucky to have such a good vet nearby. I'm in BC too, the interior, and the only guy in town who does birds does so because someone has to do them. He didn't even know the species of my birds! Thankfully he has real experts on speed dial.

Re: Help please, one eye closed

Yes, fortunately there is 3 good vets in the lower mainland specializing in avian care.
One only a 5 minute drive from us and they all do emergency visits.
They are all very good, one works with the rescue center we got our birds from, she is on the board of directors and the other 2 are highly recommended as well.

Re: Help please, one eye closed

Theyres a vet in my town but they only do cats,dogs, and farm animals. Can't believe a vet can treat a goat but not a bird ! But luckily Theyres one 15 mins away from us, it's family operated and they have a cockatoo , which makes me comfterble that they understand bird ownership.

Re: Help please, one eye closed

I want to thank everyone ans update you. We waited and saw some improvement, but not enough.
Just got back from the vet, Bosley had either bumped or scratched his eye, Vet gave him an injection and eye drops in office and sent me home with oral anti inflammatories. He gave him a full exam and Bosley is otherwise very healthy, weighs 471 grams (1.03 punds)

I towelled him for the first time and he has already forgiven me LOL

Just thought you might like to know

Re: Help please, one eye closed

SandyBee i have been wondering how things were going. I am so pleased you took him to the Vet. I thought there might have been a scratch there. He'll be all new in a few days.

Re: Help please, one eye closed

Thanks Pedro,

Yes I took the day off work and took him in, I wasn't risking waiting any longer. All went well, met our new avian vet. Really nice, seems very competent. Owns a Macaw. I am so happy that it not more serious.

Also very happy that he is being a cuddle bug and forgives me for towelling him.!!!

Thank you for your advice and support!
