Customer Question

Good evening. My budgie is nearly 14 years old and has been amazingly healthy throughout his happy life. However, about 3 weeks ago his left foot became infected and our local vet injected him and gave him antibiotics for 5 days: Bobbie had to consume 0.2 ml in a day. He picked up, but his foot is dreadfully sore - still swollen with a big, red, bulbous swelling just behind his nail. His ankle is also swollen. The swelling has not receded at all in the three weeks. I am really worried about him. I can send you a picture of his foot if you want.
Thanks for your time.
