Thank you Shannon. Jill had a respiratory infection last week to, but she seems to be better, she's done with her round of antibiotics on Thursday.
It sure is. Oh yikes, was she okay? I'd bring Snow White if it wasn't so expensive, luckily one of the vets up here will sell us medicines without seeing the bird.
Good idea, I clipped the feathers around Roxy and Feathers bums yesterday. I was going to do Jackie too, but I couldn't catch her. I'll have to grab her off the roost and trim the feathers then. Jill and Pebbles need it done too, especially Jill because she has a perpetually poopy butt.
I'm usually so good about keeping their bums clean, and I was going to actually wash Snow White's bum and clip the feathers yesterday, because it was getting really poopy. But I had to help my dad pump water out of the boat out at the cabin because we've gotten so much rain, and by the time we got back it was getting dark and I figured I'd do it the next day. But I guess while I was gone the flies had done their dirty work.
She was okay, after about a month.
They had eaten a lot of her rear, but, very luckily, none of them had got inside of her. We rushed her to an emergency vet, in the middle of the night, and waited hours for the vet to pick the maggots out and clean her up. We had a bunch of medicine give to us for her, and that really helped.
After a few months, she was completely healed and her fur grew back fluffy.
Unfortunately, she got myxi and died a little while after.
Yeah. I guess we've both got our work cut out for us then. XD
I'm sorry, that was a terrible pun. XD XD
Well, these things happen. So, don't worry too much. Hopefully you'll be able to clean her up super good, and then she should heal up fast. :3
I want a bunch of books for my birthday, so, since that's coming up, they'll be classed as my birthday presents. XD XD
