Ann had a cold
by Hillary Martin
Well, Ann had a sneeze with a little clear product and I had I fit and got her to the only Avian vet I know the very same day, Dr. Greg Brown in Columbia, S.C. He had never seen her, as she is new to my home, and was so impressed with her age and her health he almost forgot she had a cold. He said she was in great condition for any Amazon, let alone one that old. Said she was probably wild born, and who knows what sex? It doesn't matter, Ann will never breed. He said she is a tad fat, but her poos are great and her broken wrist (!) isn't a problem, she just can't fly.
Dr. Greg said my dad did a great job with the bird, had her so cozy in a towel she thought she liked it, said that she needed a vitamin A shot which is pretty common and a good reason to get a check up, because who knew? Not me, anyway.
So I'm proud of my dad and I'm thrilled with Dr. Greg Brown and for only $60 and he's not on your list of Avian vets. Even his techs are knowledgeable and good with the birds. There was a 20 pound Iguana in there, as well. Ann is 4.4 pounds. Little fatty.
Also, Greg gave me the name of a rescue here in town where I can find a bird to replace Mozeltov and give another bird a chance to recover.
