Rudy chewing his foot
Rudy my 12 year old Amazon cut his foot 5 days ago and refuses to let it heal. He is actually possessed with tearing it apart. I have nursed him all week to find him bleeding in the am.
I took him to an avian vet this am. They tried an e collar but Rudy went nuts.. Had to take it off.
THey gave him fluids because he was not drinking or EATING.
Gave him Baytril, pain meds and pain cream.
I came home and tried to use the collar again only to find Rudy was passing out from stress.
I had to force feed him to get food into him.
I do not know what to do. I need to find a way to stop him from chewing before he dies on me.
I love .. ADORE this bird. He means everything to me.
Please tell me what I can do.
I took him for two rides today to get his mind off his foot.
The visit was over 200 and nothing was achieved .. Please tell me what to do to save him. I love him.
