Rio at Emergency Vet overnight
Please pray for my little man, Rio. He is the yellow and bluish one on the front of the sled (no good with mutations sorry) in my signature.
He has had a terrible moult and feels the heat so I didn't take much notice when he had his wings out over the last couple of weeks as it's the middle of summer.
However, yesterday I noticed he was literally panting and his wings were out all the time, even at night when it was cooler, and his wings started trembling.
I took him to the Emergency Vet tonight and they think he has a neoplasm or something in his throat. They said they could not see down very far as something was blocking the way.
The avian vet is not on until the morning so they have him in an oxygen tent all night to help him breathe. Poor little fellow is at the point of struggling just to breathe.
They will keep me posted if anything happens during the night and will operate tomorrow.
Thanks for your prayers. Moe is his bonded buddy and is wondering where his little friend is already, even at night. God bless my little Rio.
