Hey everyone! Been forever and a day since I posted... I'm sure it's a very new crowd, look forward to at least trying to catch up with everyone!

For all that remember me from the long ago and far away past.... My favorite child is still the blue and gold brat, Max. And he is actually the reason I've lurked back in.... we are in a bit of a health crisis with Max, I'll post the details under the healthy highway, just wanted to pop up here and say hi.

I hope everyone is doing well! And right now, staying warm, we are having an insane cold snap, so maybe I'll spend the weekend inside and play the word games that I can't believe are still going!

Hugs to everyone and their feathered brats! Pic of trying to convince Max to eat something during his marathon visit to the Vet this week. 20230131_212244.jpg

Warm smashed sweet potato. :) I don't have a single macaw that turns that down.
Thank you! Yep, he loves sweet potatoes and butternut squash! But I love them both too, he's just got great taste!!!! Those will make a great hide the broccoli in brownies mom trick for any meds he might need. Hev was on lasix a few days, jerk would let it pool under his tongue then lower his head so it all dripped out!

OMG I have had a bird do that! Not common but really hard to medicate when you do have one. It's hard enough to towel them and get it in their mouths... How do you make them swallow? LOL

You have to learn to put the meds on top of the tongue. At least Max is very hands on. Sakie was my brat and she wanted a to be difficult and get a biopsy of my body.

Have you forgotten our history and experience here?? the meds were given like syringe feeding, the weenie still managed to roll it under his tongue. He also learned real quick how to put his tongue on the tip of the syringe, so the plunger couldn't be pushed to even get the meds out. I did inject one dose into a piece of orange, he loves his oranges, that was probably the easiest but slowest delivery.... I stood there with a small crock to catch any drips so we knew what went down. He's a massive weenie...

Could you please coax Frankie to eat it then? He will eat regular mash but both he and Dolly refused the sweet potato version lol
