Surgery to remove abscess in conure abdomen
My bird is scheduled to have surgery on Friday oct,23,2009. He recently had liver failure due to poor diet. We have since fixed his diet and gave him 30 days of injectible antibiotics. He is much better and healthier now. But my vet said he thinks my bird may have an abscess or open infection in his abdomen because of how his fluid that was drained from his abdomen looked.
I guess my question is... Is the surgery right for my bird? And what's his survival rate for this type of surgery? He is only 6 months old. I'm very worried, but my vet told me if I don't let him have the surgery that I will probably find him dead very soon one day.
