I'm really glad you have got your little chap sorted out, and I hope his eye soon improves. However, you have forgotten 2 important things - you haven't told us his name - and also it would be lovely to see his photo with his beak trimmed, for us to admireHi everyone. Can I just say a HUGE thank you again for all your help!
I took him to the vets yesterday and they gave him a beak trim (he looks very handsome) and prescribed some eye drops to be administered twice daily.
Vet also gave me some great advice about enclosures and bulbs. I get paid next Friday so until then I’m giving him a lot of outdoor time in natural sunlight (it’s very sunny in the U.K. right now) and just using his enclosure for sleeping until I can afford a table. Bulb has been switched off permanently until I swap it out.
Again, thank you all so so much for your help and advice. I’m a very new tort mum, and was surprised with him only two months ago with no prep. (I was only meant to be babysitting for a couple weeks but ended up adopting him from a home that couldn’t give him the attention he needed.) So I’m really trying to learn as I go, and I greatly appreciate the time you guys have taken to help me.
Lots of love,
