Default Progress of Treatment for Mites... my Rigby

Not sure where to post this.. I thought it might be interesting to see the improvement in my new little friend
Mr. Rigby (he's acquired all kinds of nicknames.. my husband tends to call him Big Rig!)
This is just after treatment one in April (his 'gotcha' day):



And today! He's had 4 treatments. He still has evidence of mites on his feet and a bit on his face. I'd like to believe he looks healthier.. and more handsome!




I think he might have something awry with his beak... I'm hoping it will be ok once the mites have gone. He eats and eats, but he spills (not tosses out, more like drops) a lot of his food... anyone have experience with this?

Thanks for looking at this... I think he's getting better... he still seems a bit fragile to me, though.

Awww, Big Rig is such a handsome little fella and sorry he's having mite problems. He does seem improved significantly on the last 2 photos and I hope to see a full recovery very soon. Good job on his treatment, Judy!

Yes, we inherited one with serious mite damage and after treatment she returned to a fully functioning bird, able to fly and everything. She was so bad, her flight feathers had all fallen out. Her beak was a mess and that came right, too.

Rigby is looking much better, Judy.

I'm sure that once the mites are completely eradicated and he's back to 100%, he'll become more adept at handling his food.

I'll be looking forward to the next update on Rigby's progress!

Rigby has really started to show improvement! I'm so glad he's feeling better and I'm sure that under your care, he'll be just fine in no time!

Thanks for the update and I'll be looking forward to seeing how he does!

Thank you for all the support!

NEW WRINKLE: Today is Rigg's last dose of oral ivermectin. As he still has evidence of mites, I called his vet to let him know. He said the mites should have been gone by now and he'd like to see him... so off we go this afternoon to the walk in clinic. I also feel like Rigby is just not well... his breathing is a bit harder than I'd like and well, it wouldn't be surprising if he isn't quite feeling his best, given his previous situation. So, I'm glad we are seeing the vet.
So, some off topic whining... my little schnauzer girl Lucy is not well and has to go to the vet, too. She has been glued to my side... she does this when she's under the weather... so I was up during the night with her. She has a history of digestive issues, so her tummy probably hurts. But she is eating and drinking, so hopefully we caught this early.
Done whining... just thinking good thoughts about my feathered and furry friends ...
Thanks for listening!!

I'm sorry your Rigby hasn't been feeling well despite the mite situation being more under control. Regarding the food, if he is currently a clumsy eater and is having problems in picking the seeds and eating them, if you haven't done so already, you can try offering him soft leafy greens and egg food for the much needed extra nourishment.

I hope the vet visits go well for both Rigby and Lucy. I'm wishing them a steady and full recovery.
