A Pet that is Ill

Friday, May 18, 2012

One of my pets, a parakeet named Blue, has an enlarged liver. It crowds her lungs (did you know birds have many, many lungs?) which makes it difficult to breathe. In addition, the imbalance of her system causes her beak to grow at an accelerated rate to the point that she needs to be brought to the vet monthly to have it trimmed.

When Blue's condition was first diagnosed, more than a year ago (she was probably born with this condition) the vet thought little birdie would only survive a month. She and her playmate, Sunny, have been just fine up until this point. Happy and active as ever.

Blue becomes irritable when I go about the daily routine of feeding and watering so I know something must be up. I'll call the vet later today and make an appointment.

Please, keep my feathered friend in your thoughts. Thank you so much. emoticon

Blue and Sunny were adopted from the animal shelter about 5 years ago when they were just budgies. So cute!

    I get sad when any animal is sick. So I will pray for Blue. I hope that you will hear good news.
