Bob went in his travel cage and we walked over the field to the vet.
( yes, I know!)
So he chattered away in the waiting room, drawing lots of attention
Then we went in.
The vet asked me my reason for clipping, so I told him training and stopping Bob flying into the walls which he does!
I was asked to wait quietly in the corner.
A nurse caught Bob in the towel and extracted him from the cage.
The vet commented on how long Bobs nails had got.
Then he clipped them, he drew a little blood but the styptic pen stopped it.
Bob made a noise when his wings were clipped.
A growly, squeaky noise I've not heard before.
I asked the vet about his head bobbing and he said cos he lives alone!
However he said apart from long claws he's in fantastic condition.
Good feather and skin condition, clear nares, clear eyes.
So I'm doing something right.
He suggested when Bob is tamed, look at getting a tame female to go with him.
They'd share a cage that size happily?
I was s bit cross with the vet suggesting Bob's life isnt good enough.
But then I would be wouldnt I!
Perhaps when he's tamer I'll take another look.
I'll try for photo's when he's out.
