A good day looks like this.
A bad day looks like this.
Last week he had another relapse. He went from being perfectly fine (in Bob terms) to having his neck all curled up. I tried all the things that worked in the past, but this time he didn't come right out of it. He spent a week hunched over, unable to feed himself or walk forward. We worked with him daily, hand feeding him several times a day and making sure he was engaged in his environment. We kept him nearby so that he could hear our conversations and the cats would check on him as they walked by. No improvement.
It was time to call in a professional. I did some research and discovered the only avian vet in our territory, amazingly located practically in our backyard, but she was booked up for a week ahead. We'd have to wait. A very long week.
Finally, it was time. We spent some anxious moments in the waiting room.
So, we have started him on a program of antibiotics, nutritional and hydration therapy and herbal supplements. We need to fatten him up and get him back on his feet feeling like his old self or possibly even better. That is our goal and our mission. Team Bob is ready to fight this battle!
I'll post a Bob Update next weekend, thanks for your support! :)
