Default In memory of Snowy...

Unfortunately Snowy has to be put down on April 28, 2018 at our vets office. She was just three years old. It breaks my heart knowing that she had to go so soon because of cancer.

Snowy had a night fright around December. Initially I thought she had a sore leg and didn't think much of it and she also seemed to have healed. Months went by and Snowy kept having this odd way of resting.. It looked as if she was leaning on one part of her body. On a February morning I noticed at night how she didn't put ANY pressure on her left leg and that alarmed me. I called my vet on saturday morning and got booked for a Monday. I was told Snowy had a broken femur after x-rays. I came back to my vets after one month for a another x-ray to see how she healed. She didn't have calcification on her leg so my vet gave me some calcium powder to help with the healing and I was told to have her rest and if she still showed signs of discomfort it, it meant that Snowy had to have either pins on her femur or an amputation. After a month, I realised Snowy had a lump close to her check and cere area. Later that night she had another one around her right leg. I called my vets and during our appointment i was told Snowy had bone cancer. This also explains her broken femur. There was no treatment options. I just had to make her comfortable until the time came.

I remember initially making a thread here wanting to try every method out there to save her. I got many stuff, including knotgrass, in hopes that her cancer will go away. I purchased iodine and stuff... I had snowy on two medications after her cancer diagnosis. I stopped using iodine once the vet told me not to because it interferes with her medication. She had steroids in her water and after that didn't work we tried metacam to ease her pain since she was picking at her lump. My last vet appointment was to put Snowy down. She was bleeding a lot and in a lot of pain.

A little bit about Snowy. I got her from a pet shop on Jan 03, 2015. She was very dirty when I got her and didn't like being held. Snowy tends to get very skittish and jumpy from very fast movements. She's very active, gets overly excited but loved to be held. Snowy didn't really enjoy bath time. Instead, I used a spray bottle. She was around 32 grams weighing but the last few months that dropped dramatically. She enjoyed eating just about everything you had to offer her other than kale! She really liked peppers, lettuce, spinach, strawberries and apricots! She loved taking naps on my finger. She had a habit of making really loud noises, which is what made her into a little star on Instagram. Snowy loved swings so I had one in her hospital cage. She was always on it.

Sometimes there isn't much that can be said. She was a lovely beautiful bird. My tiny little angel. I really miss her...

So sorry for you loss of Snowy , she looked just like my Bebe who I lost last year about this time to AGY. It's never an easy decision to let them go but you did the best thing for her and now she is happy and pain free. Fly high sweet Snowy.

Fatma,

I'm so, so sorry for your loss of sweet little Snowy. We were all praying for her to get better but in the end you did the kindest thing for her, she was obviously suffering. You took such good care of her while she was with you and I know she knew that.

I know you'll miss her greatly, and we all will miss seeing her around the forums as well.

Rest in peace, little Snowy. Fly high among the stars.

Hugs to you and best wishes to you and the flock during this difficult time

I am so very sorry to hear you lost sweet Snowy. I've been following her story both here and on IG, and along with you and so many others, I've been praying for a miracle for her. Thinking of you and your family at this difficult time.

Fly high and free sweet Snowy. Free from pain. Free from suffering.

Oh Fatma, I’m so very sorry to hear about Snowy. She was my favorite of your flock. She is no longer in pain. Rest peacefully, dear little angel.

Fatma,

I'm so very sorry for your loss of darling Snowy.
I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence. I often speak your name.
Now all I have is memories, and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which Iíll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
I have you in my heart.

~Author Unknown
Fly high and soar freely darling Snowy; rest peacefully now sweet girl.

So sorry for your loss, Snowy was a beautiful budgie, at least now she's free of pain. I hate how these beautiful little angels can suffer such horrible illnesses such as cancer.
