Our African grey parrot got sick. We called our vet here, and the avian vet wasn’t in, so they recommended we take Charlie to BluePearl-Tampa. There we met Dr. Shakeri. Never in my life did I meet someone so caring, compassionate and gentle. To our dismay, Charlie wouldn’t make it, so we made the “choice.” It was the hardest thing for me to do. Charlie was with me since she was 8 months old. I was allowed to spend special time with her while knowing what was next.
When all was said and done, Dr. Shakeri handed me Charlie in a precious box and gave us a hug. We miss Charlie terribly. 37 1/2 years is a long time. Now we are in search of a new baby grey.
Thank you for your honesty and compassion, Dr. Shakeri, you will never be forgotten.
