This morning Yoko visited an avian vet. They were fully booked, but told me to bring her asap and leave at the clinic, so they can check her in between other patience. She spent at the vet more than half a day. Vet did an x-ray and found that she had strained the muscle on her foot. We got painkiller twise a day and told to keep doing what we were and provide her with a lot of rest. No high or hard perches, put everything on the bottom of the cage and keep an eye on her. So happy for her that nothing very bad!
She was a good girl and kept eating even at the vet. Honestly, her foot looked better this morning. Last two days it was completely straight and she would also keep it up. We so her leaning on her foot today.
Some photos from yesterday evening, she was calling late at night for us, so she got what she wanted
FaeryBee, StarlingWings and MascaraRabbit thank you very much for your support! Little sweetheart Yoko is feeling better with her paw today, hopefully soon she will be happy active jumping around budgie
Thank you everyone for your support and interest in this thread. Some updates from today.
Yoko was standing on both legs! It is still painful for her, so she tries to avoid using the injured leg, but you can see big improvements!
She eats and drinks well, though prefers millet over other food. I allow her to eat it as much as she wants now, however offering some fresh veggies and leaves daily. Not much luck with that and even not very successful with the regular budgie seed mix. I hope after her full recovery we can be bit more experimental
Today Yoko was finally allowed to fly a bit around the living room. She seems very active and definitely a very sweet birdy! She landed on the orchid pot and was checking things around Her paw is getting slowly better, she is using it quite often, though while sitting she still prefers to keep it up.
