    Shiela had surgery today on her sour crop. All of the avian vets said they hadn't or wouldn't perform the operation, so luckily I live with someone who was a surgeon for 50 years! My grandfather and I performed it and she is improving drastically now. I am giving pedialite and an antibiotic which I would tend not to, but I let grandpa take over. I am planning to integrate the acv and yogurt tomorrow. Pedialite seems to be working wonders though. Any ideas, or suggestions?
    THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE AND ESPECIALLY jeaucamom FOR HER OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS ON THE SITE.

    I hope she will make it. It was the only hope.[​IMG]

    I would do what you are doing...you may want to give her some scrambled egg in a day or so. You could order Avian Charge 2000. dlhunicorn told me it has all the butrients they need in it and you can get it from McMurray and Stromberg's.

    Grandfather's are excellent and being a surgeon makes him more excellent. Hug him and tell him thanks for a job well done.
