Default RIP Robbie

Poor little Robbie had to be put to sleep today. He had been sick since November, and since then we did Flagyl, then 4 weeks of Doxycycline injections, and we honestly thought he was finally on the mend. In fact, on Wednesday we were commenting that he seemed playful and happy. Thursday morning I woke to find a huge lump on Robbie's back and he was somewhat lethargic. Watched him all morning and by Thursday afternoon he couldn't walk.

Poor thing would hobble to his food and water and it broke my heart to watch. He kept climbing the rungs of the cage to sit on his perch. Took him to the vet today and she's pretty sure it was cancer (it was a hard lump under his skin), and had probably been cancer all along. She felt his stomach was probably full of cancer too and was pushing on his nerves, causing his legs to be paralyzed.

He was young, as he was probably 3-4 months old when we got him, and in the 11 months we've had him he'd been sick for 4 of those months. The vet told us we took very good care of him considering how sick he's been. The heated cage, vitamins, and meds kept him going much longer than normal.

So, it's really quiet here tonight and the kids are already asking if we could get another bird, preferably something larger like a cockatiel or something. I just want to find a reputable place in Ohio to buy a healthy bird. We've learned a bunch about birds in the process, and what the best foods and proper care mean to bird health, and also looking for a bird that has a decent temperament.

Thanks for your support these last couple of months.

Leigh

Oh I'm so sorry about Robbie. He had been through so much in the short time he was here. You obviously cared for him a great deal.

Thank you for being part of our forum and sharing your story of your little Robbie with us. May he rest in peace.

((hugs))

I'm so sorry. It is heartbreaking to put your budgie to sleep, but you did the right thing. You gave him excellent care and lots of love. He's happy and healthy again, playing with the other birdies and waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.

I believe Lindsay at Cute Little Birdies is located in Ohio should you want another budgie. I don't know what part of the state she's in, but she's been active on the forum (you may have found her already):

Best wishes to you and your family. You will know when the time is right to get a new birdie friend
