Willow Left for Dead
Recently our 4 year old Green Cheek Concur, Willow escaped her cage, after my young daughter opened the cage and attempted to feed her. As the home back door was open, Willow managed to fly her way through to our backyard. Her partner who was visibly distressed, George remained in the cage, squawking and screeching for his life partner to come back. While Willow was enjoying her brief stint at freedom she was taken by one of the Crows which frequent our backyard for food. On this day, one of the very large Crows took Willow within its beak and flew off.
Our daughter Louisa was so upset and emotional seeing her pet, Willow flying off into the distance; she came running inside the house to alert her mum. There was very little we could do, feeling helpless and sad we watched as Willow was taken into the distance by the Crow.
As if by a miracle, a flock of Myna birds saw what was happening and flew to Willows rescue. While in flight they surrounded the Crow and began to berate it, to such an extent that while flying the Crow opened its beak and dropped Willow. Dropping a great distance to the ground, Willow attempted to fly but could not and dropped into one of our neighbours backyard. By this stage we could not see which neighbours house Willow had landed into. It was the time of day parents were taking their children to school, my wife (Maria) approached parents as they were walking by and asked if they had seen our Green Cheek Concur, one lovely neighbor advised Maria that she had indeed seen a bird matching our description into her neighbours backyard and she would retrieve Willow for us.
Returning with Willow in a box, we were very grateful, however Willow was not in a good way, badly bruised, feathers from her neck removed and one eye badly damaged we were very concerned for her health. Willow was taken to our local vet (Summer Hill Veterinarian Clinic) who took wonderful care of her, keeping her for a few nights observation, monitoring her condition and treating her with anti-biotics, I am pleased to advise Willow began to respond positively to her treatment. A few days later we were able to take Willow and treat her from home. Although she has to remain separated from her partner George, as the fear from the Vet is if her partner notices the difference in her appearance due to the injuries sustained, Willow may be attacked, so they are in separate cages, but they are talking to each other.
Willow is still receiving her anti-biotic treatment, her eye is so much better, the bruises on top of her head are looking better, and we are hoping the dead skin on her head does not infect her, she is eating well, pellets and fruit treats. We are so grateful to the Myna Birds, who fought off the Crow, our neighbour for noticing Willow and the Vet for treating her with such care and consideration, she is still with us today, and hopefully for a long time to come.
Dog age calculator: how old is my dog in human years?
The team at Betterpet have kindly allowed Petdedicated.com provide a link to their brand new dog age calculator. It’s a tool that allows users to enter a dog’s age and see it converted to human years.
Sadly, many pet owners don’t always know how old their dog actually is and how they should be caring for their furry friend. If pet parents know their dog’s exact stage of life, they can make better decisions about their diet, nutrition, exercise, and health. That’s why the Betterpet team decided to make a resource like this free and accessible to the public.
So give it a go, find out your furry friends true age
