Xandir may be sick

Just a short history for those that don't know....

Xandir, 5 month old Congo African Grey, has had a hard life so far. He was fed the recalled Kaytee formula and was really sick. Then he crashed through a window screen and was missing for 4 days.

Well he has not been himself for a few days now. He's not eating as much as I would like and ALL he does when he sees me is beg to be fed. He has an appointment with a vet tomorrow at 1:30. Please keep him in your thoughts.

Thanks everyone!

We're home now. Nothing much to tell until we get the blood test results. The fecal showed inflammation of the kidney and more "bad" gut bacteria then the Dr. would like to see. She wasn't sure what antibiotic to put him on because of the 2 she would like one is hard on the kidneys and the other is hard on bones/joints and hes a baby still. So she put him on Metronidazole Benz Chicken, lol. Once she gets the blood tests back she will decide what other one to put him on.
