Alot has happened since I fist posted not long ago about getting my new birdie.. The dog, who has never shown any prey drive before (and has completely ignored the bird untill this moment) bit poor bird. We rushed straight the to vet, and luckily he only had a puncture wound which they glued up and gave him antibiotics and pain killers, and gave me antibiotics for at home (which he's still having) and he seems to have recovered well from that, after a few days of being quiet and very sleepy he is now back to been almost as noisey as before and has being flying around
I have however noticed that he's started having lots of undigested seed in some of his poos, some of them are normal though. Although when I say seed, it really only looks like milet, which he eats by the bucket full! (trying to get wieght on him) he always has a milet spray in his cage and his seed milet based. (i'd pretty much swapped him onto pellets before the dog bit him, but then he lost his appitiet and I was more concerned about getting him eating than anything else so gave him his seed back). I am involved in ferret rescue and know when they have "birdseed poop" (bits of undigested fat etc making it look seedy) it can be caused by stress, so I just wondered if this is the same for birds (as he's deffinately had stress poor fella)? or if its a trip to the vets? or if I should just remove all seed, give him his pellets, and see how he goes?
He seems okay in himself and I'm not overly worried about him atm
