Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

Penny is still pretty sick. As soon as new meds are ready I will go get.

Doxyclin is bsctrostatic, keeps bacteria from multiplying, and allows body to deal with infection.

But what Penny needs is an antibiotics that kill the infection.

She is a little better ( ish) had a nirmal poop, ate a few beak full of yogurt, ate 3 tiny carrots shreds, and a couple if beak bites of cooked egg whites. Really micro amounts. Then is back at full puff asleep right in front of radiant heat panel....

I'm soooo worried

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

The question of where the sickness came from is more likely from us as we walk outside for any number of reasons. Unless one goes though a full toxic clean-up when we reenter our home, we carry all the great outdoors in with us. I'm not recommending such, but the reason that the 'common' flu has been near zero during this fall and early winter is the efforts we have paid to avoiding the monster virus. Add their immune system being for any number of reason weaker than normal and an illness occurs.

Sorry that Penny is not well, with great hope, she will react positively to the medications.

Our Parrots are a central part of our life and when they become ill, it deeply effects us...

Huge, warm Amazon feather hugs and prayers your way dear friend!

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

Hope that powerful med is effective for Penny! Does the vet have an idea what may be the organism(s) affecting her? Sending healing wishes and feathered hugs!

Re: Penny is sick, I've been holding back making a thread

Penny has developed right eye squint, and right nostril is wet, abd she is itching it.

She is spending most of the day sleeping and fluffed.

But I bought her a special treat sticks, and she has been eating at that here and there. And went to her food bowl once, but didn't stay long. Im going to fix her some warm food.

I talked to vet an updated her on nostril drainage and eye squint. She said this medicine is great for respiratory stuff.

I'm very worried still as.90% time is sleeping fluffed. But she is willing to come see me when I check in her, yesterday she didn't move. And She said Hello to me, and gave chirps and wing shrugs. That's much better than yesterday....
