Star of the week this week is Papadum the peacock!

Meet Papadum… one of our more exotic patients. Papadum is a 20 year old peacock who came in for a consultation with Guy at Salisbury this week.

He has arthritis in his toes which were causing him pain and he was struggling to walk. Guy gave his family some medication to help his condition and told them to hide it in pieces of bread (his favourite treat!)

Papadum was also treated to a manicure whilst he was seeing Guy; his nails were becoming very long which was also affecting his ability to walk.

We loved having in him and we wish him all the best in the future.’
