We did not want to revisit the balloon-like swelling this year and egg binding. She did really great. No seizures and Dr. O was able to get her beak shaped properly.

Giggie received her depo and added two meds from Bitty to her regimen...sildenaphil and another. She thinks when the ovaries swell from hormones, it’s cutting the blood flow to the legs. If that doesn’t work, she will get an implant too. Although I should have reminded dr o that she was also egg bound last year. And her heart is as wide as her liver which means we are looking at heart disease. Whew, at this rate, I’ll have a house full of heart babies.

Aw Chandra - I'm so sorry. Heart disease is hard and you can't let down for one minute.

The Sildenifil has done a great job for Jasper's blood pressure.

Your a great parront! Ty for giving the very best care w/ the supervision of your vet! We both know, many don't. I'm sorry about the heart disease, I hope her life isn't shortened too much because of it!

If your vet didn't mention it, the depo shot really leaches calcium from the body. You might want to ask if a supplement is necessary
I have her on a supplement now because gabapentin does that with minerals too. We think the first year she was on it, it caused the unformed egg shell and binding. But I didn’t know depo did that. Think the implant does the same?

I really know nothing about the implant for it and what I do know about the depo shot is because for years I was on it myself. :)
