Default Clean Bill of Health!

Today I took Per in for his well-birdie check up and he got a clean bill of health! We saw Dr. Kevin Dill in Fargo. He was excellent! He checked Per over carefully, checked his heart, tested the poop and asked me many questions about his diet and care. Per weighed 28g, a bit underweight. The doctor talked with me about how to get Per to transition from seeds to pellets, offering several suggestions. His advice on diet, specifically percentages for pellets, veggies and seeds, matched Talkbudgies' recommendations. I left with a good care plan and the comfort of knowing that Peridot has a great vet to go to for check ups and if needed otherwise. I will go back in six months to make sure that Per is putting on weight like he should.

That's excellent news!
When I first got Sweetie he was underweight a bit. I found that doing trick training with a millet reward helped to both fatten him up a bit and build our bond together.

This is great news. How did the little man cope with the whole experience?

Thanks, FaeryBee, Moira, and Kellie!

Overall, Peridot did well with the experience. He didn't let the vet just pick him up but otherwise didn't cause any trouble. He has been a bit less trusting of me and more cautious again since the trip to the vet. However, that could be because it is 90+ miles away and we were out all day. I had to take him with me to a couple of stops while I was in Fargo. Then, since he was already out and about with me, I took him to several home visits I made as part of my job. (I had permission beforehand and knew there were no predators at any of the visits.) The people loved him and got huge smiles on their faces to see him. He was a champ about the whole thing, even happily grinding his beak during a couple of visits. When we got home and for the next few days, we have been building trust again, as he seems to have regressed a little.

I'm so glad to hear that little Peridot did so well on his adventure! It's great you were able to take him with you.

Good to hear he's got a clean bill of health, too!
