Έκαναν μεταμόσχευση φτερών σε παπαγάλο και τώρα δεν σταματάει να πετάει

Μια κτηνίατρος έδωσε ξανά φτερά σε ένα πανέμορφο παπαγάλο δώδεκα εβδομάδων.

Ο παπαγάλος έχασε τα φτερά του από μια πτώση και από τότε δεν μπορούσε να ξαναπετάξει, μέχρι την ημέρα που η 31χρονη κτηνίατρος Catherine Apuli, αποφάσισε να του κάνει μεταμόσχευση φτερών για να τον βοηθήσει.

Η μεταμόσχευση ολοκληρώθηκε με απόλυτη επιτυχία και ο παπαγάλος δεν σταματά να πετάει.

A doting vet has given a twelve-week-old bird a beautiful new pair of wing tips made from donated feathers after a 'severe wing trim' left it unable to fly. Pictured, 12-week-old Wei Wei

Like many pet birds, Wei Wei — a young Green Cheeked Conure — had her wings clipped to stop her from flying away. Pictured, Wei Wei's new wing tips, which were donated to the clinic

Animal doctor Catherine Apuli, 31 of Brisbane, Australia's 'The Unusual Pet Vets' assembled the new wing tips which were glued on while Wei Wei was unconscious, pictured

The operation was a complete success, with Wei Wei taking to the air again within hours — allowing her to learn how to manoeuvre and land herself safely. Pictured, Wei Wei and veterinarian Catherine Apuli

'The bird had a severe wing trim, which means that the flight feathers were cut too short and too many feathers were cut,' said Dr Apuli

'As a result of the wing clip, the bird was sustaining heavy falls to the ground, which has the potential to injure the bird — in Wei Wei's case, she was falling heavily and the owner noticed she was painful on her feet,' said Dr Apuli

'Primary flight feathers — the big feathers at the ends of the wings — which have been traumatised may result in pain, bleeding, unwanted aggressive behaviours and self-induced feather plucking,' said Dr Apuli

'The imping procedure was performed to prevent further physical injury and to regain flight for optimal mental and physical health,' said Dr Apuli

'The feathers were donated to the clinic; each feather was then cleaned, sterilised and dried prior to preparation,' said Dr Apuli
'The base of the feather was cut to allow the entry of a wooden toothpick, where it is secured in place with glue,' said Dr Apuli

'The bird was then placed under a light anaesthetic to ensure the Wei Wei did not move whilst the feathers were placed correctly and the glue dried for this painless procedure to be performed,' said Dr Apuli

'She flew very well after a few attempts and appeared quite excited that she could suddenly fly!' said Dr Apuli
