My African Grey managed to get out of her cage and through the bars of my cockatiel's cage crushed and pulled out my baby's lower beak and entire jaw bone! After $500 worth of surgery I'm now tube-feeding him trying to save his life. I have to give him injections 3x a day, as well as 3 other meds. He's already taught himself to drink on his own with a little help from me and a syringe but I'm concerned he may never be able to eat on his own again. Am I simply prolonging his suffering? I'll tube-feed him for as long as it takes but we still have to get through possible infections, choking and possible residual mental damage. I'm broken-hearted over being responsible for my poor baby's suffering, I should have foreseen this possibility. Has anyone had any experience with something like this?
