Re: Parrot attacked by dog - advice?

Hi everyone! Some good news - Mr. Tikkie has some muscle bruising and lost feathers, but other than that is okay. No puncture wounds were found, and no other internal injuries. The vet says he was very, very lucky. He should be in tip top shape once his feathers grow back in ~ 6 weeks.
He has been chatty today and we have been spoiling him a little

Thanks for all your input.

I'm glad to hear Mr. Tikkie had only minor injuries, thanks for the update. Extra pampering is always appreciated.

Re: Parrot attacked by dog - advice?

Our dog once got hold of a wild Sulphur Crested Cockatoo that was in our yard. I was able to make her release the bird immediately, but when we got it (the bird) to the vet, he said the tissue damage was extensive and all the bleeding was happening under the skin. He put the bird down, saying 'dog bite is almost always fatal to a bird'.

There's more to this story, but I just wanted to get the vet's words out there to remind us ALL not to take chances with our furry pets and our birds. It only takes that one bite, so be vigilant: have rules about supervision of your pets and stick to them!

I'm so glad Mr Tikkie is going to be OK! His story is a good one to show how quickly and easily an accident can happen, despite all the care in the world.

Re: Parrot attacked by dog - advice?

Angel had a real close call with our scotty. I keep a very close eye when they are in the same room, but all it took was her flying over and landing on a gate that was near him. I jumped up and over there super fast, but he had already been able to jump up and grab a tuft of her tail feathers. SO LUCKY

He is no longer allowed to hang out with us in the bird room. I bout had a heart attack myself.

Re: Parrot attacked by dog - advice?

When I was a child my lovely little budgie Emerald was killed by my best friend Jewell the dog. In an instant. They hadn't even been in the same room less than 2 seconds before. I think we can all agree that in the case of the OP they had rules in place for safety, but a miscommunication happened, and we are all glad that their little guy is ok!!
I don't like to think about where I would be if that little budgie had never fluttered into my life.
