When Nibbles was sick and we took him to the vet, the vet gave us 10 different supplements that costed us over $100, and then when my mum told him that he was a very fussy eater, he said "Oh no, he'll love this". Yeh right. He wouldn't touch the stuff, and I don't blame him, it smelt terrible and I doubt it tasted very nice either. & Also we read up on kidney and liver failure and it matched Nibbles symptoms, and when we took him to the vet to get his opinion, he said "Oh no, he can't be sick, he doesn't look sick"! We're talking about a well trained highly regarded avian vet tell us that he will only judge if he is sick or not on how her looks! He should know that birds are very good at hiding their illnesses, and he should of taken what we said about him having weird droppings, sleeping a lot etc into consideration and not just chuck us out of the room and getting us to hand of $55 for 5 minutes of his time. And maybe if he had tested Nibbles, and taken what we said into consideration, he'd still be alive
Vets always seem to think they know best, but the truth is they don't. Sometimes you need to just ignore the vet and do what you feel is right :wine So don't let them vets boss you around. We know what’s best for our pets!
