I am SO glad that I found out Florida Vetranairy Specialists did regular practice with Avian and Exotics. I had no idea how much my last vet sucked until I picked up Dahli yesterday. My last vet, (besides completely misdiagnosing Dahlis entire condition/suggesting i put her down/and putting her on antibiotics 2 months for nothing), Never cut her nails nicely or gave me any answer as to why her eyes were so watery. She would call you in and tell you she had important things to hear and then a tech would tell you she was busy and to coem back the next day. And o_o on a personality and bedside-manner level, she was a total bitch.


After Dahli came home from FVS I keep notincing all these wonderful immediate impovements!!! Before when her nails had curled a lot (the vet told me that they couldnt be cut any more than they were and that the curled liek that because she was old.) now Dr Lightfoot(teh new vet) cut them perfectly and she looks liek she got a piggy manicure! ^^ and now Dahlis eyes are so much clearer and not as droopy. Shes more affectionate because her cysts are clearing up and she has medication to loosen her up, she even chirps and kisses my hands whenever i give her food and medicine.

I regret to badly wasting all that time, and all that money on a vetranarian who knows absolutely nothing, is worth even less than than, and who completely acts like you and your pet are so beneath her. I cant belive shes called and exotics vetranarian and i cant believe so many people reffer others to her. WIth this experience i realize now how vitally important it is that you make sure your vetranarian is qualified!

*ahem* One little question though. Is it absoluetly neccesary to take out a baby boy from the other females after 21 days? Dr lightfoot said that they would probably display mounting behaviour but wouldnt be able to make semen yet. is that so? Because Gunni looks absolutely Desolate without his mom and sisters. hes all alone T_T
 
That's absolutely wonderful about Dahli. Your lucky that you found a great vet in time to help her. I'm not sure about the mounting thing though, I'm really new at this.
 
Yes you must take the males away 21 days after birth. They can, do and will impregnate their mothers and sisters.
