Ben my CAG had an Ionised Calcium reading of 0.46, dangerously low.
Benny is now Penny Lucas-Stubbs. She is doing fantastically well, her feathers are starting to grow again after her really bad start. I am still giving her Calcivet of course five days on, two days off and plenty of sunshine/fresh air.... She is still untouchable (lol!), doesn't like hands, arms, sticks or perches but hey ho. As long as she is healthy and happy in her huge new cage and she has loads of toys to play with, that's all that matters. If she doesn't ever want to be sociable with me then that's fine.
The photo on the left was taken yesterday (16/07/11) and the one on the right was the day we got her (23/6/11) so in just over three weeks you can see the improvement. Penny wasn't a plucker so much as a nipper, she just clips the ends off her feathers.
