    This has NOT been my week! Firstly..my poor little roo may not make it. I'm trying to battle a bad infection in his toe. He's in the house with us..mad and crowing away! Secondly...This morning my duck Chewy seemed to have a seizure and was staggering around..Hes inside and i'm keeping a close eye on him. Then..I just noticed that one of my precious baby Seb goslings seems to be making a wheezing noise. I think she may have gotten a chill or something from letting them outside to play/swim in a small kiddie pool. AHHHH! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:Soon people will start bringing you their sick birds, and you will be forever known as the the bird doctor.

    Imp-I once had a friend bring her cat (who'd been chewed up by a raccoon) to me for the recovery. 7 shunts in it's head- looked like frankenstein. She had inherited the cat when she bought her house. She was very allergic so couldn't care for it herself. My cat was sick at the time as well, so I was doing dialysis on her too. Looked like I lived in an ER too. IV bags hanging from the kitchen ceiling. Frankenkitty and Herbie George recovered.

    Everybody saw the first lucky one get 'house hospital', got together and decided.....

    "OK, one of us sneeze every other day or so, and we'll ALL get in there! I here the food is GREAT!"
