Just wanted to update that Kiwi got a clean bill of health at the vet last weekend. He was a good boy and let my husband just hold him there in his bare hands for the vet to examine, similar to how he's held for talon trimmings at home. I think he realized it was be toweled by the assistant of let his most favored person hold him and opted for favored person to hold him The vet also complimented the appearance of his plumage after his big "I'm healthy again" molt. Very glad my boy is healthy again

That is great news!

Julio was getting a bit concern that they would have to scale back their background activities, especially as a special day approaches. Our Bad Boys likely have something special planned.

Re: Back from the vet, it's not great news

Just another FYI to those following this for the health info to discuss with their own vets-

While the vet is hopeful it won't due to being caught and treated relatively early, because this happened and his age, he'll need to be monitored for the rest of his life for kidney issues that may arise in the future from this having happened. Fortunately though, we now know he'll be prone to kidney issues and can be extra diligent with monitoring him and keeping him on a renal-friendly diet (which he's adjusted well to) long term.

Re: Back from the vet, it's not great news

Great news, April! I'm a huge fan of Kiwi's, and it's good to know he's in such great condition. And the vet's comment regarding his plumage is no surprise to me. I've always been blown away by the vibrancy and sheer beauty of his plumage. Just wow.

And I also want to cosign on your FYI, as my cockatiel Suzie passed several years back due to kidney disease. Catching it early makes all the difference, because the kidneys don't recover functionality. Meaning that the best you can do is maintain a certain level of health once kidney damage occurs. So if the condition is caught too late, as my Suzie's was, the prognosis will be poor.
