Default Goodbye Cyril

Dear all,

I have not been on this forum for years. My budgie Cyril was 11 years old and never had a days sickness in his life until 3 weeks ago when he started breathing heavily and being very quiet.

I took him to the avian vet who did x-rays and blood tests and discovered he had a 'high infection' - no tumour or fatty liver disease as first suspected though. Cyril was a trooper though and tried his best to remain chirpy.

We have been giving him oral antibiotics for the last two weeks. Each time he was very stressed at being grabbed and having liquid syringed into his beak and it took him at least half an hour to get over it each time.

On the whole, the antibiotics didn't seem to work as his breathing got no better but he continued to eat, drink and chirp and was very friendly although he stopped 'speaking'.

Yesterday the vet decided to change the meds and I went to get the new ones. When I got home my husband Cyril seemed fine and was happily perching on my finger, singing and whistling though his breathing was still laboured. We did the usual ritual of orally medicating him but this time he was so unhappy he had a heart attack and passed away in my husband's hands.

I am devastated and can't help think that we killed him. I followed the advice of the avian vet but feel I should have known how much it was stressing him out and stopped the medication.

He was my world and I miss him so much.

I'm so sorry for your dear little Cyril. You must have grown so attached in the 11 wonderful years you shared together.

Your story is identical to mine- and it's how I lost my little almost 5 yr old bird Skittle a month ago. Laboured breathing after a flight, attempting to syringe antibiotic to no avail- and he fell from his perch at home and passed away.

Cyril knows you loved him, and he must have tried his best to keep his beak up and stay chirpy for you in his last few weeks because he loved you back :-).

My thoughts are with you!

I'm so sorry for your loss... You did your very best for Cyril and I'm sure he appreciates all the love and care he had during his 11 years with you.
Please accept my most sincere condolences. I hope with time the hole left in your heart by your precious boy's departure will be filled with the wonderful memories of the good times you had with him.

Rest in peace, Cyril. You were much loved and will be missed.

Rest in Peace, sweet handsome Cyril. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. His 11 years are testament to your love and good care. That he fought so hard to stay happy during his illness shows how much he loved you. I am so sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. You did the best you could to care for Cyril, which is all that any pet can hope for. I'm sure he loved you just as much as you loved him since he fought so hard to get better!

I hope that your sadness is driven away by the many happy memories you had together. Cyril had a long life with someone who cared about him a lot!

Sorry for your loss. Most of us here have lost beloved pets, and can understand the sorrow and emptiness their leaving us causes. I hope your sorrow soon turns to joyful memories when you remember your little friend. You did a wonderful job for him.
