Default Farewell Sweet Archie

I was going to post about a month ago about one of my 5 budgies,Archie,but got caught up in all of the hectic chaos of trying to teach online etc. I had taken Archie to the avian vet in mid Feb because I was concerned about him having a respiratory infection ,so he was put on antibiotics and his droppings came back clear. Another few wks later, I noticed an very slight increase in his breathing and she checked him again and noticed a very small soft swelling above his vent. Last month(March) I took him in again (during the beginning of the corona virus precautions so I had to stay in my car) while she needle aspirated him. She cautioned it could be a tumor inside that small swelling as there was some blood in the culture. Anyway, to keep him eating and defecating, he was on meds(Chronulac & Dexamethasone)that I administered twice a day until earlier this wk. He was panting too hard and the lump was much bigger.I only put his meds on his millet& food a couple of days ago. He sang until last night and then passed this afternoon. His 4 flockmates were in a cage next to him and kept vigil.I only had him for 4 yrs and his brother is in with the flock. I know he was loved and I did what I could. I just worry he was in pain as he whimpered a bit and flipped over twice before he left us. With the virus stuff going on, I would have been unable to even take him in with the limited hours. I know we do what we can and I guess I can just say I was home to be with him this last month.

I'm very sorry for your loss of sweet Archie.
You obviously tried your best for the little fellow and he's now happy, pain-free and no longer ill as he plays happily at the Rainbow Bridge.
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
Fly high and soar freely, Archie; rest in peace now wee man.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of darling Archie. Obviously he was very much loved and I'm sure he knew how much

Now he's watching over you all the time.

Rest in peace, little one. Fly high above the stars.

My thoughts are with you during this time.

I am sorry to hear of Archie's passing. It is a difficult time to be taking pets to the vet, but I am glad that you were home to keep an eye on him <3

it is definitely a trying time but I know I was there for him and he knew it too. Last time I lost a bird, I was home recovering from surgery and it was tough but it was meant to be. It is challenging to get our little birds to the vets with all of the restrictions too. Thank you all. <3

I am sorry to hear about your loss. The loss of a dear feathered family member is hard at any time. I think it is especially hard right now when we are home so much and everything else is so difficult.
