As I have posted before, Custard has a liver condition and as a result his beak is overgrown.
Last month, we took him to the vet for a beak trim and file.
A few days ago we noticed that he might need another vet visit. However, last night I realised that he’s given himself a trim!
He’d been spending lots of time at the iodine block and cuttlefish, grinding away with his beak.
So, it turns out that he’s escaped a vet visit for the moment. Clever boy.
His beak looks a little stronger than last month too, so hopefully the hepatosyl and aloe juice have been helping him.

Further to Custards vet visit of 18th August to discuss his overgrown beak and the bloodspots in his nails, we had to book an appointment for a beak trim and shaping.
He has a liver condition and it means that his beak grew too long, so, in order for him to be able to dehusk seed properly, something needed to be done.
We have made dietry changes in order to try and help him, but, so far the beak is still growing.
Someone on my forum has had some success with a supplement called Hepatosyl, so far only licensed for cats and dogs, but the vet gave me the go-ahead to try miniscule amounts for Custard. As it is not an actual drug, you do not need a prescription for it, so we have odered some online.
