More medication (continued)

Following on from my previous post (More medication), administering of medication continues:

  • Day 4 of medication (Saturday)

AM: Caught Bezukhov in the Manor.  Most medication given but a drop was below his beak & I think I managed to scoop it up & put it in.  Afterwards, I normally, get Cagney back in the manor so we can start the morning from scratch again, but this time Bezukhov wanted to stay out with Cagney.  9.7/10
PM: Attempted to catch Bezukhov in the Manor.  He managed to slip through my fingers about five times.  Then he continued to give me the runaround around the room.  In the end, I gave up.  The good thing was that he was clearly on good form & was not even out of breath with all the coming & going.  -1/10

  • Day 5 of medication (Sunday)

AM: Caught Bezukhov in the Manor.  Full medication successfully given. 10/10
PM: Finally managed to catch Bezukhov after he kept slipping through my fingers.  Suspect he only got a tiny, tiny bit of medication, due to all the wriggling.  1/10

  • Day 6 of medication (Monday)

AM: Caught Bezukhov in the Manor.  Most of the medication given.  8/10
PM: Another runaround session.  He had some medication though I did notice a big blob on his head.  4/10

  • Day 7 of medication (Tuesday)

AM: Caught Bezukhov in the Manor. This time I suspect there was an air bubble in the medication so when I pressed on the dropper there was a spray of medication.  I hope it is good for feathers…. 6/10
PM: Bezukhov was successful in his bid not to be caught.  0/10

Today, we also had a follow up vet visit.   Read more of this post
