Default I'm sorry Pete

I had a little yellow parakeet named Pete. He was three years old and just loved life! He had a huge vocabulary, and loved to be on my shoulder chattering away. When he wasn't on my shoulder he was in his cage banging this mirrored pagoda with a bell on it non stop. From my bed every morn I heard him calling me to get up. (Sorry but I'm writing this with tears in my eyes.) I'd let him out and he'd go right to my shoulder. Yesterday I made an appt at 430p with an avian vet to trim his beak. I did a couple errands, rushed home to get him there in time. At home he was happy as could be chattering and banging his bell. Put him in a travel cage, got him there. He got examined by the vet, she said he was very healthy, she said I'll be right back and she left with him into the next room to trim his beak. She came back in two mins later with him in a face cloth, and she told me he passed away while she was trimming it, she tried oxygen but it didnt help, he was gone.

I loved this little guy, he was just so happy to be alive. He was a special little bird and I'll miss him very much.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and my condolences to anyone who has lost a little friend like Pete.

Rocky

Default he had been there before

and she told me that it can happen, they can get very stressed very quickly. She said as soon as he started gasping she put oxygen on him, but didnt help.
If I left him alone he'd be here rightnow. I'm so sorry to this little guy.

Oh, it isn't your fault. If budgies don't get their beaks trimmed themselves, it's our job as budgie parents to take care of them He was with an avian vet (which doesn't sound right) when he died, so there really wasn't any more that you could do. I'm so sorry this happened to you ... but please don't blame yourself. I'm sure Pete wouldn't.

I'm so sorry for your loss - it's so hard when something like this happens. You were being a good and responsible Budgie parent, let go of the guilt and remember the love and happiness. Fly free little Pete.

I have someone who comes to my home to trim nails and beak if need be. She also told me that it has happened that a bird will die while it is being done. So this isn't unknown and it doesn't mean the vet was incompetent. It never seems right that it does though, but I wouldn't blame the vet and certainly not yourself.

I am so sorry for what you are going through right now.

How terrible! I'm so sorry. I would be heart broken as well. But ofcourse , no blame should be placed on you or the vet. Think of their tiny little hearts and bodies. They just can't take as much as a large animal or us when it comes to stress. And how do we know if our bird might enjoy a nice trimming or be terrified of it. Sometimes the way we find out is the worst way.

I'm going to the vet tomorrow for a check up, Needless to say I am a bit worried =/

I am so very very sorry for what has happend, it must be quite a shock for you. I don't know how I would feel if I were in your shoes. Thank you for sharing your story. It is a good reminder to us all of what can happen when these little creatures get overly stressed. Please do not blame yourself, you were doing the best you could for Pete.

RIP Pete.

oh i'm so sorry - please don't blame yourself though as all the othrs have said you were only looking after your little baby like a good responsbile budgie parent.

Pete had the best life with you and you loved him so very much, he knew that. Please take comfort in that thought and remeber Pete will be forever in your heart.

We all know and understand your pain, just keep remebering the love and fun you shared together. xxx
