    Cute canary with attitude...Sad he lost his nail & especially at the vets. They should be more careful.

    Hopefully eventually he can grow a nail that the foot will support & not go thru this cycle again & again...Poor Peep.

    Thank you!

    He's such a hardy and resilient little guy, but it would be great if he didn't have to go through this again. I wish there were more avian vets in my area! :(

    I don't really do anything for him (except encourage him to lay down with a chew bone) as he gets really stressed if his feet get touched then he gets paranoid and starts licking them frantically which causes him more problems than the actual nail ever caused. He is a neurotic whippet. He does rest a lot more than usual for a day or two when it does drop out, I have also noticed he does not run around like a mad man in the yard when the nail first falls out.
    When he first ripped it out he had a lot of trouble walking so he did not use that foot, he was taking anti-inflammatory and pain medication and also had the biggest wad of padding under a bright color bandage to keep him comfortable.....when the medication is not taking all the pain away for a dog, you know it hurts!

    I really feel for your poor wee yellow speck of feather cuteness.

    Aw man poor guy... If only we could take tjat pain away--seriously!
    Peeps still moves around but it's always worrying to see him on one leg :(
    I finalltly called the vet today and they scheduled a courtesy check up for him. I hope vet can tell me if theres a way to manage the pain and prevent the risk of infections if this persists.

    Also, he is an update on Peeps' foot:

    He's family, so I try to do my best in hopes he can have a healthy long life with me

    I'm also lucky to have found you guys because I can see you also take good care of your birds. Honestly, I'd be lost without without you guys! Thank you :)

    A quick update on the Peep!
    I took him to the vet for the courtesy check up, and thw vet told me that he is healthy. I was told to simply keep watch on his foot and contact them asap if I notice anything odd.

    Overall, it appears that Peeps is doing well! He's not picking on his foot, and I haven't seen him favor any foot either. :)

    Canaries are cute little birds with major tude...& there song is nice too!

    Glad his foot does not seem to be bothering him & nice of the vet to check him as they did injure him...

    Peeps says hi lol
    His middle toe isn't showing signs of nail growth which I think is for the better. He needs to get his other nails cut though!
