Exotic Pet of the Week

December 9, 2010 by  
Filed under Featured Patients

Ryuk (left, gray) and Kamikaze (right, green) are a couple of very sweet, young budgies (parakeets) who came to see us recently for their first well-bird veterinary visit. They came from a breeder in Ohio (Cute Little Birdies Aviary)–as in yes, the owners drove all the way to Ohio and back for their sweet little babies! They both have some English Budgerigar in them, which makes them a little bigger than the common American Budgie, which you’ll find at the pet stores.  Their owners did a tremendous amount of research before making the decision to get them, which is what we encourage all owners to do before getting a new pet.

Ryuk was in to see the vet again recently, as she injured her little foot. Being the acrobat that she is, we think she hurt her foot in an attempt to try a new gymnastics move, and it didn’t work out so well. She’s trying to rest it for now (a tall order!) so she can get back to climbing all around her cage and exploring!
