Sick Petey

In early December Petey (our 9 year old parakeet) woke up with a lame leg.  We took him to the vet and she quickly determined that he had a tumor in his abdomen, which caused the lameness.   Prognosis — not good, wait and watch.    Medicine helped alleviate the lameness, but the tumor continued to grow.    At this point he really can’t walk well anymore and we modified his cage because he kept trying to climb up to the highest point.   He’s got all his favorite things nearby… food, his mirror, his sleeping bag, little buddy, his bells (he loves his bells).  Pretty bird.
