    Igor was such a good boy the whole time so I'm going to spoil him during the 2 weeks. [​IMG]

    Poor baby how is Igor doing now? That was alot for ya'll to see and alot for Igor to have to go through.. If he likes bread you can take a small piece big enough to go around the pill and then smooch it real well around the pill and offer it to him that way. That is how I get my old drake to take his Glucosamine tablet. I break the pill in 3 piece and give him 3 pieces of bread wrapped around the pills He loves bread so he takes it and has no idea there is a pill inside.

    I am glad it is now over and his foot can start to heal.

    I am so proud of you! Good for you for watching the procedure, learning how to give pills and how to wrap.

    Of course I love pictures, but I do think that they could be very educational for those that haven't seen bumblefoot, so please do post them!

    He's doing good and acting normal, he was such a good boy. After it was all over and his foot was rapped, he was allowed to walk around. It was so funny the way he was walking, he takes extra big steps lol. He wanted back in his basket, poor baby. He's acting normal though. The guy showed me how to give him the pill, but if I have a hard time with that (which I probably will,) I'll try the bread thing. :)

    Yes, I made sure to watch every detail and it was very interesting! I only got pics once the doctor was out, I didn't know if I was allowed to, but I did anyways (teehee.)
