Good....I am sure being home with at least one of his pal's will be very beneficial for him. I hope that is the end of the problem's for him....

He currently gets kale, romaine and watercress every day with some shredded carrots. I see him eating it but not sure how much he ingests.So glad to hear that he is home and on the mend! Being back with Bebe is sure to be good medicine as well. Neurological issues scream B vitamins to me. If your vet has not told you to avoid them, I would do my level best to get him to eat as many greens as possible (avoiding the spinach and Swiss Chard as they interfere with calcium absorption) as they are rich sources of vitamin B.
Look forward to many more happy updates from you. Way to go Opie:whoo::whoo:
I'm so glad to hear Opie flew a little today. It's to be expected that he's tired after all he's been through, poor little fellow.Opie has done well today (Saturday) he even flew a little today. He seems a little more tired than usual but after what he has been through I guess that is normal. Also he gets so stressed out from me giving him his meds it takes him a bit to calm down after the ordeal. Even though I hold him in a washcloth he squirms and twists and bites making it really difficult to get the meds in his mouth.
I'll try that. I am sure he picks up on my being nervous. I have 2 other birds that I medicate daily, one has a testicular tumor and one an ovarian issue, they are tame and easy to medicate, totally opposite of Opie.I'm so glad to hear Opie flew a little today.

Shelby did the same thing when I had to give him medication twice a day as well. Just try to talk to Opie as calmly as possible during the process to help him through the ordeal. :hug:
Thanks, he is much happier at home. It was killing me to see him at the vet so scared and without his buddy at his side.I sure hope he gets better and soon. One of the best medicines is your loved one at your side. I'm so glad he has him to help him get through this. And of course YOU for being a loving friend who takes the best care of him you can. Sending lots of positive thoughts his way. Please take care.
