Popo Chan’s Recovery - 08/14/12 02:28 PM

[size:11pt][b]It’s been a while since I posted this. . . (Actually I can’t believe how long it has been :blush: !!)[/b][/size] [url=][/url] [size:11pt][b]Popo Chan continued taking her medicine all the way through the month of December 2011, so I guess that was about 4 months of drops twice daily (mornings and nights) & constant cage sterilizations and trips to the vet. [/b] [/size] :crazy: [img:left][/img] [size:14pt] [b]Before medical treatment[/b][/size] [size:11pt][b]Popo Chan carries the “mark” of her battle under her beak, but the infection is definitely gone now. What used to be a plump peanut sized balloon (an abscess - [color:#CC0000]see photo above[/color]) is now a wrinkled flap of skin ([color:#CC0000]see photos below[/color]). I’ve been waiting for it to gradually disappear, but it looks like my little girl is going to have a sexy little “wattle” thing going on.[/b] [/size] ;) [size:14pt][b]After medical treatment[/b][/size] [img][/img] [img][/img] [size:11pt][b]Her spirits are still high & she is quite an active little budgie. :) She’s begun sitting on my shoulder and hanging out with me even more since her whole “medical ordeal.” Although my boy, Dango Chan, has begun to pout now that Popo Chan & I have bonded more. He is such a cute little brat, he wants me all for himself! :D Popo Chan is still dealing with her feather issues, as you can probably see. But she is taking her Nekton-Bio supplement & I hope over time she’ll be back to her old self. :) Anyhow, I just wanted to give you all an update on how my sweet girl is doing.[/b][/size]

Hey Tanaka! Good to see you back.
Popo Chan looks much better! Yay!'s been a long time getting there huh? I'm really happy she's doing so well.

As for her feather condition and the Nekton Bio....I'm a fan of the Nekton vitamins too, they're a great product.
If you don't mind my asking, how much protein is in the Bio?
I know too much protein on a regular basis is not good for them...higher protein during molts YES definitely...but for a long period of time? I'm not so sure it's a good idea to give it to her for looong stretches even if it is good for feather growth.
Maybe check with your avian vet if the protein level is very high.

How about Vit A sources? Is she getting plenty of vit A? Like sweet potatoes, carrots...crushed red pepper? Vit A is important for healthy feathers too.

Anyway, great to see ya. Thanks for the update. Been wondering how things worked out.

You tell Popo Chan she's still a hot chick..with or without the sexy lil wattle thing smile
