Since about two weeks before Christmas, she has been limping. Last Monday a week ago, she spent all day on her perch and when I fed her, she was clearly finding it difficult to walk. So I took her to a vet who could not feel anything that indicates the problem. They wanted to do a $280 X Ray, and suggested that if the X Ray did not show anything conclusive, they would have to assume it was a nerve problem. Well I chose to not do the X Ray and instead asked for some pain killers. Over the last week, she has been clearly walking better, and even able to run a bit when needed. Her limp is not so bad. But, the medication cost about $40 for one week. If that is the only solution, she is going to suffer a pragmatic decision, and I would prefer to not need to make that decision. So, if anyone is able to help me discover a more reasonable solution, I would be very grateful, and you would be doing something nice for Chookie. The prescription was Tolfedine 20mg once per day.
