Gilroy has had two beak operations performed fantastically by Boulevard Pet Hospital in Castro Valley. He has some type of reoccuring cell mutation that causes small growths. Through the use of laser surgery, they have been expertly removed. However, I have been cautioned that it could continue to come back. Each time the growth is removed and the cells are removed that seem to cause it. We will just have to wait and see what happens.
So far, he is having no problems with eating or drinking. His energy is fine and he appears normal, except for only having half a beak.
