It looks pretty good to me, honestly. I hope this is the start of an upswing for you both. I think the fact that he's been living with this so long and still doing well as far as eating/weight/activity is a really good sign against it being something like cancer that would spread.

Poor little guy! He looks remarkably bright, all things considering.

Still eating good, yes. Today I got him some more veggies to make chop: carrots, kale, swiss chard, dandelion greens, baby broccoli. Tomorrow I'll be making that.

I find that Chirp seems to be eating more since his beak got worse. I can't really complain too much, lol. Right now he's pigging out, head in the food bowl. He's been doing so well, I'm really surprised. I'm so proud of him. He's such a strong little boy.

Here's Chirp's current mash recipe! Served daily with fresh water (2oz of water and 16 drops of milk thistle). He eats probably about 1/2 of it daily, give or take. He really likes it. When he finishes this batch of chop I'll start him on the next one, which had baby broccoli and dandelion grees, in addition to the chard, kale and carrots. I also made him some quinoa sprouts (I was surprised how quick they were, I only soaked them overnight and they already had little tails!), those are in the freezer with the chop.

Chirp's mash

1tbsp of Zupreem Natural Pellets
1 Senior Nutriberry, crumbled
1tsp of quinoa sprouts
1tbsp of chop (mixed veggies)
1/4tsp of ceylon cinnamon
3 drops of flax seed oil
A pinch of yunnan baiyao
4 drops of milk thistle
2tbsp of water

Add powders, liquids (including the water) and veggies/sprouts into bowl. Add the nutriberry. Mix well. Add pellets. Allow time to soak up water and serve!

I'm do glad Chirp is eating more!!! I think the medication for the pain must be helping greatly.
