Last vet visit of 2021

We could not let the year go without another visit from the vet.

At least this time it was not an emergency.  We actually had an appointment booked for January, but I rang on the off chance there was a cancellation, so the visit was brought forward to the 30th December.

Perry

Perry’s beak has been getting long.  As the end nestled into his feathers it was not always noticeable but when I did see it, I got increasingly alarmed at its length.  He was still able to crack seeds though I wondered how long he would be able to do that for.  Also, as time went on, Moriarty was less appreciative of the head preens Perry was giving him!

By chance, the day before the vet visit, was a bad one for Perry with respect to his ‘turns’.  My last post on them was October 2020 – Update on Perry’s health.  This year, he has continued to have them at intervals: 16th March, 7th April, 6th June, 26th November, 29th December.  Obviously, these are only the ones I have witnessed.  Each has been of varying intensity.  Fortunately, each time he has recovered well & despite having two episodes (11:30, 16:10) the day before the vet came, she said he was looking well.

So, yesterday Perry’s beak was trimmed & is now back to normal.  This is one less thing for me to worry about… & I have had a lot to worry about!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy 𝟚𝟘𝟚𝟚. 

Across the budgie realm, I hope all chirps are happy, all flirts & kisses are reciprocated, seed & vegetables are plentiful & all naps are accompanied with peaceful chattering.
