A Visit to the Vet

The events of this posts actually took place in November, but I'm blogging about them now:)

Okay, so, Monty was in need of a checkup. We took Monty to a different vet, not an urgent care one, and this time I got to go in the room with room.

Monty was SCARED. He was in an unfamiliar place, and he could see from his cage all of the other animals and their owners walking in and out. The only other bird in the waiting room was this adorable and VERY LOUD little conure.

I sat next to the chair his cage was on, rubbing his head and comforting him. My mother stayed outside; all of the animals were making her sneeze; despite my allergies I was okay, despite a few sneezes.

We saw many different types of animals. There were dogs(one kept looping his leash around his owner's legs) and cats, and even a ferret. Monty was literally shivering. He was probably remembering his emergency room visit.

Later, when it was finally Monty's turn,  we brought his cage into the checkup room. Monty was silent.

The doctor took him out of his cage( he screamed and shouted.) Then he weighed him on the scale.

Monty seemed fine with that. He stopped yelling and just sat there.

But then...

Part 2

As you can see in the videos, Monty put up a fight. He wouldn't stand for it. I felt bad that he had to get wings clipped. My dad was against it, but we needed to keep Monty safe.

I took this picture today. He's happy and healthy, and he loves to get on the floor and scout for things to chew on in my garbage can.
