An update on Bubs. He is talking lots and his latest is 'see you later, silly billy, happy chappy and claws'. Clean his cage daily eg new newspaper and thoroughly clean once a week. Went to Avian vet 3 Saturdays running. Was supposed to do last dosage but Bubs was clued in with a glove and cloth so managed to put on but not properly a drop. Going to Avian Vet on Sat and will keep going until clear. Got in contact with breeder who said 'liquid paraffin'. Getting from pet store. It hasn't affected him but want it cleared? Love my little boy and hope it will clear soon? Nat/Bubs.
Thank you FaeryBee. I'm just going to continue going to the vets on a weekly basis until I feel happy it has cleared. Bubs is tame but I haven't held him since I first got him so will leave it to the experts. I thoroughly clean each toy and inside and outside of his cage. Bubs is looking so healthy and acts it to apart from his cere. I feel the culprit was the wooden playground. I binned it months ago. :-( Hoping for a full recovery and will do all I can to rid him of this. Nat/Bubsy
We went to the Avian Vet yesterday! Bubs was a little angry, a warble noise telling us he is annoyed. He is a feisty fellow which I'm glad he is, as you need to be a tough character to survive this world. He had his dose which will be the last one unless it flares up again. His poops are healthy and was told how well he looked. He has just had a moult too so in the photo looks a bit scrawny. I love seeing his body all fluffy and his head feathers raised chatting away. Just love watching my lively 'happy chappy'. He now says 'Silly Billy' very clearly. His cere is healing and this doesn't seem to have affected his character, behaviour and eating/drinking habits. My gorgeous special, little Bubs. Nat/Bubsy.
Thank you FaeryBee! The thing that has made me less worried is that his lively character didn't change. I will always closely monitor changes in Bubs and act more quickly from now on. I've also got to relax a bit but that is hard as he very special to me. Budgies are gorgeous creatures. Nat/Bubsy. x
Love half term holiday. Bubs just had a fab 'out of cage time'. He seems a happy boy. I would put my knee up and tap it saying 'come' and he would fly to it then chat. He said 'kiss you' today. Bubs would walk along the sofa and come up to my nose and gently pecking it whilst I said 'kiss'. Very lively and enthusiastic today. Now back in cage bashing his bell after eating his seed, nibbling at his millet spray and going to his water. So pleased to see this. :-) Nat/Bubsilicious.
