I have a 2year young Cockatiel(Mango), That fell from his cage,
we took Her(Mango) to the Specialists, where they took X-ray's they advised us that Mango landed badly, and there was movement in her spine, it did not appear to be broken,
they have give us anti-inflammatory medicine to give to her, and hopefully once swelling in Mango's bone marrow has stopped she might be able to use her legs again,
i am currently feeding mango every 6 hours with hand feeding formula, and we are on day 3 since her accident(happened on Sunday eve)
i would just like to know since she has no use of her legs at the moment, "pooping" is a bit difficult. how o i clean her? is there a method i can use or something to help prevent blockages, her poop currently is very watery...
any advise would be appreciated,
