Moderators - Please update the title to say (Update 12/4)-Thank you! :heart:

Just got back from the avian vet... He said that Mikey has nasal congestion and that he still was a little clogged up... :( So he cleaned out his nares without having to put little Mikey through another nasal flush. He gave Mikey 2 shots - one shot of B-12 and a shot of a anti-inflamatory called Azium. He also gave me drops that I have to put in each of his nares 2 times a day for 5 days called Neopolydex which will clear up the infection. Mikey's nares already look better.. :) Mikey's test confirmed that he does has a staph infection but he is NOT contagious to other birds. Mikey's vet wants to see him in 2 weeks for a follow-up and possibly do another culture to see if everything has cleared up. Mikey's vet also recommend that I buy a humidifier which I will be purchasing this afternoon. :)

I'm going to spend some time with Mikey now.. :heart: I just wanted to thank everyone for their help.. You guys are great and have probably saved his life.. :heart: :hug8: :hug8:

I am glad to hear that he looks better. Is the staph infection just in his nares?

Excellent news! It's so wonderful when we finally get answers and are seen by the people we trust that give us concrete information and hope.

Very glad to hear Mikey is on the road to recovery!

HUGS. I hate when they are sick.
Warm mist humidifiers are best

Oh thanks for asking! Mikey is doing soooooo much better... :D He is sooo much more livier and is eating a little better.. And even though he is not happy about taking the meds, I really do believe that he knows I'm doing it because its for his own good.. And after I give him meds, he initially runs away from me and then a few minutes later he comes running back to me looking for scritches.. Ah my little lover boy.. :heart: I really just learned soo much this truely has been a transformation period for us... :heart: :heart: :heart:
