    Farlie is still sick, poor guy

    OK, it's Saturday and the vet said there is a little improvement from last week's visit but not much. I suggested X-Rays to 'look inside' the little guy. Vet said his digestive track looks fine but his respiratory track is still clogged so the vet changed the medication to, Doxycycline, 10mgs twice a day. This stuff knocks him out, poor little guy and he doesn't like it either.
    I'm glad he didn't eat anything bad like all the colored stuff wrapped around a bread wire-tie or the cotton strings from the fraid perches.
    We'll have to wait another week or so till we see the vet again.

    I am sorry to hear this and feel bad for both you and Farley. I really do hope the new stronger medicine will be just what he needs to get better. If you are giving him his meds with a syringe in his beak I learned with Boomer once your squirt the meds in his beak to always drip a drop of water into his beak as well. It helps gets the yucky medicine taste out of there beaks. Please keep us updated on your little Farley and hopefully real soon he will be back to normal.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
