Default Goodbye Chicken

I'll start with what is unfortunately what comes from the only few pictures we had taken of Chicken.



[IMG][/IMG]

Chicken (just over a year and a half old) was taken to a vet on Thursday showing signs of "sick bird syndrome."

The vet could not find anything physically wrong with her asides from being a bit under weight. Heart and lungs sounded fine as well. The vet said she could not do a blood test because it would kill Chicken, being so sick and a smaller than average budgie to begin with. She was prescribed antibiotics and given the first dose there. After the dose she was put back in her cage and layed on her side. I thought she was dead. They quickly took her away to give her some oxygen. When she was brought back in the room she layed down looking dead again but stood up after 10 seconds or so. It was a wonder if she should have been put down or not but the vet decided we should give her a chance.

I put her on a perch and she clung on for the entire 45min drive home. Just until we pulled in the driveway she fell to the bottom. I bought her in and made a little bed cutting the top off a tissue box and laying a towel inside for her to lay on. She now looked terrible, violently shaking all over in spasms occasionally. My wife and I regretted not euthanizing her at the vet by this point as she appeared to be suffering. While my wife sat on the couch holding the box talking to chicken and sobbing, I looked online for a humane method to put down an animal. I did find the vinegar and baking soda method.

However employing this method was not necessary. My wife told Chicken it's ok to let go and move on to heaven now. Chicken who had been too weak to hold her eyes open for a time leading up to this, looked around and saw she was home. It seems she decided it was a safe place to die, as she went just then. All in about 10 minutes after getting home, and before I could even finish reading how to gently put down a pet. Amazingly she clung onto a perch right up until about the last 10 min of her life.

R.I.P. Chicken, you were a part of the family that will be missed.

Sorry for the loss you have suffered...Chicken is in pain no more, and knew at the end that she was loved.

I'm so sorry to hear this... It's never easy to say goodbye to a much beloved little friend, you have my deepest sympathies.
Your Chicken will continue to live on in your heart and through the memories of the good times you had together.

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

I'm very sorry for your loss of little Chicken.
Fly high and free sweet girl; rest peacefully now dear one.

It is because of Love we Grieve
and
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow

In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort.
