After going to several vet visits, sometimes twice a week, after doing everything in our power, Boba sadly passed on just about 10-20 minutes ago.
He died in my boyfriend's hands. We just moved yesterday, which I'm sure stressed him out, but I had sensed he would pass on soon. I've posted several topics of his failing health so I really don't feel like going into details anymore...
We were planning to take him to a different vet tomorrow, but I guess we were too late.
I just can't get the image of his stiff body and him dying out of my mind.
I feel like I just should have ended his misery sooner, but he died with the owners that loved him.
Meeko is now alone again...it will be some time before we are ready to get her a new cage mate...not really a priority right now since we're still in shock of course...
I just don't know what else to say. I never experienced this before.
I am so sorry for your loss..*HUGS* I lost my female hen recently too and we both saw her die right before us too and it was very traumatizing. *HUGS* You did your best. I'm sure Meeko will need your love and support more than anything. My Bubu has been depressed too. I hope you will find peace in knowing Boba is no longer suffering. He is in budgie heaven...We are here for you if you need any other advice... I hope you will find Meeko a new friend in the future.
I am so sorry to hear about Boba's passing I know you did everything you could to get him healthy. Sometimes life doesn't always agree with what our hearts want unfortunately
Please do not feel guilt over Boba's death. He died exactly where he should have in the arms of those who loved him most.
You have my deepest sympathies. He was a beautiful bird. Thank you for sharing those pictures with us I especially love the one of your family -something to cherish.

Rest in Peace, dear sweet Boba. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. You have a wonderful keepsake in the photo of you, your boyfriend, Boba and Meeko. A family filled with love.
So sorry to read about Boba. i had Pong die in my hands about 2 months ago and it still haunts me. i wish i could have at least done something for the pain that i knew he was in--that's what hurts the most. i try to focus on the happier days

I'm so sorry. Boba was a beautiful and much loved little bird,
and I'm sure he loved you with all the fierceness a little budgie
heart can hold. He had a wonderful life in a home with a mate
and people who did everything possible to help him. He even
passed on cradled in loving hands. No budgie could have asked
for more, and he was a lucky little bird to have lived his life with
I know your home is emptier tonight, and your hearts are aching,
and my thoughts and sympathies are with you and Meeko.
