Hello everyone, my name is Karina and I live in NYC. My boyfriend Jose and I got Rex when he was 2 months old. He is now 8 months and our baby:) he has an older brother named Nacho and hes a 1 year old sun conure. They work as a team all day long....Nacho is the "alarm" of the house and Rexy is the muscle. As a silly younger brother, Rexy likes to steal Nachos treats and toys..but other than that they get along great!
I originally joined this site because at 4 months old Rex developed a cyst on the back of his neck and I was just scouring the net for info. We did take him to the vet (3 of them) and luckily it ended up just being a huge pimple. ( 3rd vet popped it just like one...gross! ) regardless, the information exchange of these sites is invaluable ..especially when your pet gets sick and you're at the mercy of a vet. I ended up switching vets 3x and saved my pet lots of stress (they wanted to do all kinds of tests and xrays plus expose him at such a young age to harmful meds and sh*t) and myself a lot of money.
Thanks for reading,
