Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Operation “Lose Lump”

After the last vet visit, when Atilla was diagnosed with a fatty lump, I have looked into ways to help slow down or halt the growth.  Due to her weight, it’s likely she may have a fatty liver so puddings & toyboys now have milk thistle extract added to their water.

Milk thistle has been used for over 2000 years as a remedy for various types of liver disease.

Along with their new “medicine” I am also implementing a new regime whereby (on a day I am not in the office) they have vegetables only during the day.  The added bonus of this is that if I have to go out in the afternoon, giving them back their seed is a great way of getting them all back in the Manor. 😀

Raspy has put on weight too so I am hoping both puddings will benefit from the changes.

    I do hope the Puds respond well to the milk thistle – it’s good stuff!
