thank you. So you don't think I should get him a shot first?
ok thank you
I can take to vet, but it's $100 and if I can do it without that and still do the best for him I will
OK he actually is surprisingly normal considering what happened. My problem has been to keep him from trying to climb around which I solved by putting him in a carrier. Also he is cheerful and friendly.
He can't use his foot, it's hanging limp, but leg doesn't look bent out of shape.
OK, let's hope it gets back to normal. many thanks
Hi, in the end I took him to the bird vet because it was hard to fill the MD prescription since it's not his domain. They gave me Baytril and a painkiller plus portioned up the medications. He seems cheerful enough and is eating. I have not checked the inflammation yet. It was helpful getting your advice (and his) because the vet wanted to take x-rays for $195, which I opted out of as the leg will heal up on its own, even if broken. She wouldn't splint without an X-ray but I am keeping him in a cat carrier which limits his use of it. His behavior is very normal.
