Dr Phil from Burwood Bird Vet contacted Pet Medical Crisis on Monday to ask our help for a treasured Budgie ‘Buttercup’ (‘Butters’) Vaughan.

Mum Kim said: 
“She is really special to me because she’s offered me much comfort, joy and giggles over the past few years. It was really cute when she would say: “pretty, pretty budgie.”

When she got sick and I was in tears at the bird vet, Pet Medical Crisis stepped in to help financially, and I honestly couldn’t believe it. It was a massive relief knowing at that time she would get the medical care she needed and not be in pain. For that, I am truly thankful.”

Buttercup required $200 for hospitalisation, medication and 2ml saline crop washes several times a day. After 48 hrs in hospital she was eating and toileting again and much improved to return home.

Rest and heal sweetheart… Love from all your friends at PMC xxxxooooxxxx
