On the 2nd August, we had another vet visit.
Perry last had his beak trimmed on the 2nd March & it had been gradually growing since then, though at a slower rate than before. I could have waited a little longer before getting it trimmed but Perry had a bad night on the 28th July due to his ‘turns’, so I booked the vet visit earlier than planned.
She trimmed his beak & toenails. His weight is stable at 56g. His original, hard lump has grown a little, though fortunately it is still growing outwards. He has more fat on his belly & the vet described him as being ‘more pear shaped’.
Without doing any tests, we can only speculate as to the cause of Perry’s seizures, but the vet does not think they are caused by the lumps. Working on the idea that his liver may not be processing toxins efficiently, we continue to give them Milk Thistle in water. Because the last episode of Perry’s seizures was more intense than previously, the vet also prescribed an additional supplement, Nutramarin+, a powder to be sprinkled on seed.
I have mixed the Nutramarin+ with some seed that I offer by hand. So far, Perry has rejected that seed, picking one or two up, then dropping them. I will persevere for a bit longer before consigning it to the ‘Medicine Refusal Box’!
