    How many mg per cc is the Baytril? If it is the liquid for parrots, then I'd give 1 ml per day for 3 days

    Great to hear the healing is going well. Post pictures of the healing we are all excited to see. 3 days of antibiotics is good unless you have been giving them already. If so then stop after today, as in a different post about the same subject, you want to give the birds immune system an advantage over the infection, but not wipe out all the beneficial bacteria of the bird. If you gave it just before surgery and right after for 1-2 days you are good. They heal fast and now the bird needs to just
    re equilibrate and get back to normal. Bet he is lovin looking out of that eye now!!! [​IMG]

    Here are some healing pictures. He is doing really good and again I do not think he will lose his sight in that eye as he keeps looking at me with it [​IMG]

    Looking straight at the cut:

    [​IMG] Wow, Yoda. I am totally impressed. I pulled a thing like that out of a hen's nostril one time. It is called "plugged nare" and I had NO IDEA what I was doing.. I googled and googled and finally came across a post similar to yours on Brownegg Blueegg which described the entire procedure complete with pics and I was able to pry a huge calcified toe nail jam out of a swollen-nosed angry cochin. It was as unpleasant as it sounds but, I don't know if I would have had the guts if it wasn't for the online support.

    This is a great thread and you did an awesome job [​IMG] I am positive many will be referring to this post in the future.

    The swelling lump looks like it still may have some infection sitting. If you can peel off a bit of the scab at one end so the void will drain, massage it out some so it won't harden up again..... If it heals too fast on the outside it leaves the infection in. Best Wishes
