Dawn-thanku for jogging my memory re the yoghurt- i hadn't got any but did give them a probiotic yog drink, which they all loved. As for the ribena, have tried it before but mine seem to prefer the Nettex vitamin drops I put in the drink, they go mad for it.
Thankfully this morning our Tillie, is much much brighter, and her crop has reduced considerably. Still gave her a 5ml syringe of olive oil, and they have all just devoured a bowl of ready brek- it was a joy to see them gobbling it up- even Tillie.
I would like to mention about the syringing- I have read many times about how careful you have to be to do this, and I hoped I would never have to do it. After the vet showed me what was what, I have done it several times these past few days, with success and it is much easier than I expected. For us it is a 2man job, one holds the beak open,the other syringes. When the tongue relaxes on the bottom of the mouth, in the syringe goes to the back of the throat and down the hole above the tongue. I was so worried about it going in the right hole and not into the windpipe under the tongue.
Maybe we just have an exceptionally good girlie who likes taking her medicine, she seems to drink up the Baytril like she does her water......
So chuffed to see her up and about...... I also read on Google about giving them white maggots, which are supposed to be good for crop probs, maybe someone could advise please? But for now we have cancelled the trip to the fish shop, dont want live maggots chilling in my fridge unless absolutely necessary.....
