This is Ziggy He was handed into Birdline as he has a dislike of men and attacks them. He also has seizures which have gotten worse over time and he now has to be medicated four times a day, for the rest of his life. Would you like to help put the bounce back in this cutie and help with his ongoing medical costs?
Ziggy’s seizures vary in severity as does the recovery time which can take anywhere from a minute to 3 months. When he is bad he is unable to undertake normal birdie activities, hence the beak can over grow slightly. When he is ‘recovered’ chewing commences and his beak wears back down. The vet keeps an eye on this but prefers not to intervene, unless ziggy gets to the point where he can not preen or eat.
Ziggy is fortunate enough to live with a wonderful foster mum who he loves lots and lots. His foster Dad has to mind his Ps and Qs though as Ziggy can be very aggressive towards men. Although he does let his Dad give him his medication though – he’s such a good boy really!
Please consider contributing towards Ziggy’s vet care. In return he will promise not to attack his Foster Dad too often…
Unfortunately Ziggy had a seizure which he didn’t recover from in December 2022. His Foster mum and all who knew and loved Ziggy are devastated. We’d like to thank everyone who has helped to support his vet care over the last few years, you helped to make his time on this earth more comfortable. Thank you.
