I'm praying that sweet Baby Bud will continue to improve and will have a full recovery.

It sounds as if you found a wonderfully caring Avian Vet who is doing everything possible to help your little sweetie.

What an ordeal. Karma to you for everything you've already done and all of what you're about to do for your little Bud.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed, hoping that he continues improving

Sorry to hear little Bud is not well. We had to give our Penry a course of medication recently and it took us a while to get the hand of it. The first thing I will say is make sure you have plenty of time. The first couple days I was running late for work, and us being rushed made the whole situation more stressful on Penry than it needed to be. Second thing is be calm and patient. This will help Bud feel the same way.

We took Penry onto the bathroom, closed the door, turned the light off, and then caught him with a tea towel. You can use your hands but I preferred the towel because that tricked Penry into thinking it wasn't really us that was catching him, and we also used the towel to keep his eyes and feet covered to keep him calm. Then lodge the syringe in the corner of his mouth over the tongue and inject the meds quickly. Offer millet immediately so he doesnt cough the meds back up.

Here's a video of use giving Penry his meds so you can see how it goes.

Hope this helps.... let me know if you have more questions. This is actually a pretty difficult thing to do and no matter how good you are your bird will NOT like it. Hang in there and hope Bud gets better soon!!
