Re: Ollie bit North's toe and it has to be amputated :-(:-(

Very sorry to know North had amputation surgery, glad she is now recovery.

I have 3 very senior birds with significant arthritis in one or more digits. They adapt very well, time is definitely on North's side.

Oh that poor baby! Glad to hear North is doing ok after her ordeal though.

Re: Ollie bit North's toe and it has to be amputated :-(:-(

I'm happy to report that her lack of toe is not in any way impeding her ability to walk around, climb or eat. Honestly, by seeing her (unless you look at her toes ofc) you never in a million years think she had her toe bitten off yesterday. I still feel bad about it but she doesn't seem to mind that much...my only thought is that it wasn't a terribly useful toe? Well anyways the important thing here is that she seems happy enough except when I give her the antibiotics she was precribed. I have Medicam too but unless I see she's having an issue I'm going to hold off on that as I know it can cause problems. I asked the vet if it was okay and she said that's fine. This ER CAV is top notch though...like seriously they did an amazing job.

Re: Ollie bit North's toe and it has to be amputated :-(:-(

I’m just reading this for the first time, I’m so sorry to hear this happened. I hope North continues to heal quickly and completely. I’ve met several parrots that have lost one or more toes, they tend to do exceptionally well. Your quick reaction in an emergency probably saved North from far more pain and suffering, I’m glad you have a good CAV in your area.

Re: Ollie bit North's toe and it has to be amputated :-(:-(

ouch, poor North!

Hopefully Ollie has learnt his lesson on biting here. Good shout keeping them separated for now, seems like Ollie is possibly forgetting he's a lot bigger than the others

Re: Ollie bit North's toe and it has to be amputated :-(:-(

Sorry to hear about North's accident, the poor baby. It definitely shouldn't affect her though, my DYH is missing both his front toes on one foot and you'd never know just by watching him climb around and play.
