  1. Hi doraemon82 A big welcome from me! Luv Vonn
  2. I also shed a tear when I opened the card, birdluv. Like you, I just wasn't expecting it. I think it is a lovely thing for them to do. It means so much. Luv Vonn xx
  3. It was so sweet of you to try and send me one! Thank you! I will definitely look for them next time I go shopping as it'll be nice to know who stocks them in my town. I will also have a look at the ecard ones. I have had a lot of problems with my email account and I am now going to change it. I used Outlook Express. So many people never get my mail and I don't get theirs. Very frustrating. Thanks for the reply, Elly, and LOTS of hugs to you too. Luv Vonn xx
  4. Thought I'd tell you that I received a lovely sympathy card for the vet this morning! I thought it was such a thoughtful thing to do. They are very caring at that surgery. I didn't realise that you could buy sympathy cards for the loss of a pet. I will always send one, from now on, if anyone I know loses a pet as this one meant so much to me. Luv Vonn xxx
  5. Thanks for saying that, Elly. It is a comfort to know we did the right thing for our little Lukie - I couldn't bear him to suffer. Luv Vonn xx
  6. That must have been so hard for you Phoebe. Thanks for telling me about them. Can't believe that the mother bit the toes off her baby!? I wonder what on earth would make her do that! How strange that he had cirrhosis of the liver despite a good diet. I wonder why so many budgies are prone to tumours - I wish we knew. I am so sorry about your loss. My husband and I are coping much better. We are destroying everything today,as well as the cage, as my husband & I can't bear to look at it, anyway. I am going to try and learn all I can about budgies now and especially all the thing
  7. Oh Elly, how absolutely awful. I am so sorry. I do understand what you mean. The first few days are the worst and then you find you are not crying as much and each day gets less painful. But it never goes completely, as you say. It makes me realise how lucky I am not to have endured as much pain as you. Doesn't make me feel any better, as my heart aches for you. Lots & lots of hugs to you.LuvVonn xx What was the final "diagnosis" Vonn? If it was "mega" it NOT bacteria. "It has now been positively identified as a yeast and is NO LONGER named "megabacteria". Its new name is Avian G
  8. I totally agree, birdluv, it doesn't actually heal, you just learn to cope better as the hurt is not quite so 'raw'. I'm so sad to hear that you have lost 3 pets, Phoebe - that must be so tough. How did you lose Rosie and Jodie - as long as it isn't too painful to talk about.? Thanks for the PM, Elley, and the hugs. I received an email from my avian vet yesterday, telling me how sorry he was about Lukie and warning me to burn the wooden playgym and all wooden toys, and safely dispose of all porous items eg toys etc., which cannot be burnt ! So you were both right to tell me to
  9. Thanks, Phoebe and Elly. I will do that - it will be so costly as Lukie had a packet full of toys, which I imported for him!! Oh well, it far worse to pass on the disease to another bird. I am starting to feel a better - finally stopped bursting into tears at any reminder of Lukie. I am now concentrating on the happy times I spent with him. I miss him dreadfully. Much luv Vonn xx
  10. A very big thank you, to each and every one of you, for your sympathy and lovely kind words. It is so comforting to know that you care. Thank you for all your support and help through this, as well. I always felt there was someone to turn to, who knew what we were going through, trying to save our little budgie, and would do their best to help. I couldn't write anything yesterday as I was in tears on and off throughout the day. The living room was so terribly empty and the house so quiet. I found myself walking to the livingroom to sit with Lukie without thinking, and then realising
  11. Hi everyone Well, our darling little bird is suffering no more. He was put to sleep this afternoon. We took him to the vet and I felt I would cope better going in on my own with Lukie. Seeing my husband so upset would make me fall apart. He is heartbroken, as am I. I took Lukie in and was determined to be brave, but Lukie was looking very nervous and that shattered me. He kept making his little 'I don't like this' tweet. I tried to comfort him but he seemed to know something was up. I really wanted to be brave, I really did, but I only just got the words out to the vet. He
  12. Thank you so much for your concern - it's such a comfort at this time. Kathyw, I was so very touched by you considering to post the drug to me - what a kind, caring person you are and I thank you very much. I feel that Lukie is too weak now to go through the treatment. It is a very toxic drug and I feel the bird needs to be in reasonable condition. Lukie isn't even attempting to eat. I think he just wants peace now and freedom from the suffering. I think the honey idea is an excellent one, but it would have to be fed by crop tube as Luke wouldn't drink it I am sure. He is just fee
  13. Thanks, birluv. He went to the vet today and had a crop feed, which he will have every day, while we wait for the drugs to arrive. They did not have them in the surgery for some reason. Lukie is not eating anything now and is going to be kept alive with crop feeds. Evidently, Megabac-S has been discontinued by Vetafarm due to the cost of production. I have just read that amphotericin B (Fungilin) has been unavailable in the UK since 2006. I do not know the reason. These are the most effective drugs for this condition. I am not sure what the vet is going to give him. I feel it is too l
  14. My poor little Lukie is not well today. He has been fluffed up all the time and has started vomiting. (He started vomiting, after a week, on this antibiotic the last time. I don't think it agrees with him at all.) He keeps asking for more seed and gets quite worked up if we don't get it quick enough. He wastes most of it and is not eating much as his droppings are few. They don't look all that good anymore either. They seem a little looser today. I phoned the vet first thing, but he has only just returned my call, as he had a very hectic day. He sounded so tired. I am taking Lukie in t
  15. Yes, I got the vitamins. The vet asked me to use Avipro as he says it will help Lukie cope with the effects of the antibiotic. It can give him a yeast infection and taking the Avipro may stop this happening. It's a good idea about the pellets! I will get some. I was going to wait until he is well. I'll let you know how things go. Luv Vonn
