JoJo V Mr Wildgoose (The Vet)

JoJo, my 8 year old Hen has been with us for just over a year and a half.

JoJo Cage

As you may know, we weigh our budgies weekly. Big weight changes are often sings of ill health. We recently noticed that JoJo had lost some weight.

JoJo sometimes decides to go on a hunger strike if she is upset or doesn’t like something that has been changed. But I had not changed anything this time.

So, off to the vet yesterday, it was.

It was about an hour each way for JoJo, but she seems to be okay with the journey.

Mr Wildgoose the vet, examined JoJo, he found that her crop was full of seed, her nails were slightly long, she was moulting, her vent and preening gland were fine.

At 41g he did not think that she was underweight but we’re to bring her back if she loses more weight and gets to 35g. He clipped her toenails, I am glad of that because we attempted it and she would not keep her little feet still. She has tiny little stumpy legs and I did not want to hurt her.

Although he could find nothing immediately wrong with JoJo, we were given some baytril as a precaution. Twice a day for one week. Little madam will not like that!

JoJo is home!




I’m not talking to you!


You’re still not forgiven!
