Bezukhov & Cagney visiting Thomas
Phineas visiting Thomas
Following on from my previous post on Thomas & his health problems, there was little change, in fact, no change, from taking the six days worth of medication: Ornicure Doxycycline. He spent several days in the travel cage so I could monitor him & also make sure he was not overly stressed. On Friday 29th November (day 4 of medication), he vacated the travel cage & after a brief walkabout on top of the Manor, returned to live with Phineas, well, he returned for seed I think…. it was a coincidence that Phineas also lives in that cage….
Mr Exotic Vet did not prescribe more of the same medicine but said to remove it whilst he investigated other options. On Wednesday 4th December, I had another consultation with Mr EV & he thought it was time for Thomas to have an X-ray. He was booked in for the Friday morning.
On the Thursday evening, I got Thomas back into the travel cage so we could go out early the next morning. The X-ray was scheduled early, before the morning consultations. Friday morning, Thomas was a very brave boy. Mr EV said he would be anaesthetised for the shortest possible time, just to allow him to be still enough for the X-ray to be done. Sure enough, it was not long before Thomas was back up on the perch & looking very much the same as before he went in for the procedure. I took him home & waited for the results.
