A little update on Pico. 🐦❤
He finished his one week of anti inflamatory treatment last friday. He didn't like the procedure but he always took the medication well, without seeming disgusted. This treatment was in case he was developing some kind of infection. However, he has no actual signs of infection such as redness, soreness, swelling, fever etc. Which is why the vet didn't immediately put him on heavy medication such antibiotics. The earwax build-up, which was his first symptome, comes and goes. Unfortunantely he never seems to have it when we go visit the vet, which makes them unable to take a swap and test it properly. His ears a still dry but he doesn't scratch it as much. He was going bald around both ears but pin feathers seem to be growing back now, which is a good sign! The excesive yawning which started about two weeks ago and that led the vet to recommend anti inflamatory medicine is less than the first week, but hasn't completely gone either. I called the vet last week and briefed the people at the reception on the situation. They communicated this to the vet and I was to receive a call back from him within two days regarding what to do next. Unfortunately, I still hadn't heard from him today, so I decided to call myself (I also called yesterday, without succes). This time the reception was able to reach the vet and he suggested we'd make a new appointment. So that is what I did, we are going back there on monday. Thankfully, Pico behaves fine. He eats and drinks, has normal poops, plays, screams, nothing unsual besides the occasional ear wax and the yawning. The last three times we visited the vet within the last two months, they said he looked perky and healthy besides having these symptomes.
