Yesterday he started crying like a kitten, he was puffed up, sleeping a lot and very cold and weak, he even vomited up his last dose of medicine and it's caked in his feathers. We spoke to the avian vet and they said he's dying. He's had chronic respiratory problems after a bout of pneumonia last year. We've been treating him with antibiotics but he's got worse. He can barely keep his eyes open or stay on his feet. The vet said either let him die on his own or get him put down, so we're going with the latter as I can't stand to see my baby like this. I've taken some photos of him, given him lots of cuddles and sung Halo to him, mum's just made an appointment for him to be put to sleep at a different vet in an hour. This has happened so suddenly and it's my worst nightmare come to life. He's so weak he doesn't mind being wrapped up in a wash cloth when normally he wiggles out.
I'm so sorry to hear this... I know how difficult it is to reach that decision but in the end you are doing what's right for your Sonny. I'm sure he appreciates all the love and care you have given him during the time he was with you.
You have my deepest sympathies.
Rest in peace, beautiful Sonny. You were much loved and will be missed.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
My heart is aching as I know yours is, your sweet Sonny tried so hard you did all you could and them made the hardest decision any one could possibly have to make. Fly high and free Sonny to the rainbow Bridge with the flock in peace now. The tears and hurt you feel prove the love you had for Sonny carry the memory and think of him often the sweet boy he was.
