    Yes, my vet us an avian. I've been going to this vet for many
    of years. He also treats my dogs.
    I question the vet when he told me to apply this ointment to
    her feet twice a day.He said it would be ok for her. and that I
    must apply a very thin layer.
    It's very stressful to watch her suffer like that...She's
    eating and some times she has some good moments that she's not
    biting them...This makes me think she's getting better...But
    when I think that.She goes right back to biting them. and she
    does not stay still. she lands on the bottom of her cage.
    Tomorrow. ( 10-16 ) will be one week that she has been like that

    Thank You Cheryl...I will be one happy person when she gets to
    feeling better
