Default Something's wrong with my budgies poop

Hello budgie lovers!

My dear Olivia, whom I adopted almost a year ago is sick. I don't understand what could have possibly happened. I have attached pictures of her poop.

(You have been warned of grossness)





I have separated her from her fellow mates and at the moment she is in the cage, sleeping. She is slightly fluffed up and she is still sitting on her perch. Probably a bit sad that she is away from her friends. She isn't playing or preening (at least, I haven't seen her do it so far) She is hardly eating or drinking anything either.

I know that if a budgie shows symptoms of sickness then it's pretty late already and that she needs immediate attention. And I am without a doubt taking her to the vet tomorrow. BUT in the meantime if there is anything I can do, please do tell me.

She also just lost two of her wing feathers right in front of me and I think that MAYBE that was because she is currently molting.

Here is an adorable picture of her being a little baby:



Also, I just want to mention that my local vet had given me Theraprim and Coxi Plus a while ago when another one of my budgies had something wrong with his poop. Is it safe to mix it in her water (I was advised by him to put a pinch of each in the water for a week)?

EDITED: I just noticed that there is saliva coming out of her mouth! I saw her yawn and there was sticky saliva in there and she JUST tried to eat some of her seeds and they all just stuck around her mouth and she couldn't eat anything. Now I'm really really worried because I know for a fact that budgie mouths are always dry.

Lots of love,
A budgie mom

Hi there,

I'm sorry your Olivia is feeling a bit under the weather. It's true that the moult can affect the droppings in terms of consistency (more watery) and there can also be a reduction on the energy levels.
During this time, you can offer her egg food in order to help Olivia cope better with the moult.
Until you are able to take her to the vet, you can keep her warm by covering the cage on 3 sides and if needed, to place a heating pad on low.
To encourage appetite and give her a little boost, you can soak millet spray on electrolyte solution.
You will find the detailed info here: https://talkbudgies.com/your-budgies-...te-recipe.html

Since you will be taking Olivia to the avian vet, after she is fully examined and diagnosed, she will be prescribed with the right treatment.
It's best to not medicate without having a better idea of what the ailment could be.
You can mention to the vet that you already have those medications from last time just in case one of them ends up by being prescribed.

I'm wishing your Olivia a steady and full recovery.

Did Olivia make the regurgitating motion before you saw the fluid coming out of her beak?
Are her nostrils clear?
The only time I have ever seen fluid coming out of the beak, it's when budgies have vomited...
I'm sorry, I can't be of more help.

If Olivia is tame, maybe you could try to wipe out the fluid off her beak and encourage her to eat the millet soaked in electrolyte.

I don't know what time it is where you live, but maybe you could try to see if there is an emergency clinic with an avian vet available where you can take Olivia.

She has been making regurgitating motions a lot today but I haven't seen any fluid come out right after that. And no her nostrils aren't clear. She is tame enough to come on my hands but not tame enough to let me do anything to her.

It is 3pm here and my dad isn't home. I have to beg him to take her to the vet now. The problem is that we are all fasting and when he comes back from work he will be super tired and THEN he will have to drive for an hour or so to go to the vet and it will be closer to the time when we break the fast.

I am so worried cause she is just sitting on the floor now and every time she tries to eat, her food gets clumped together because of the saliva and she isn't able to eat it as it hangs around her mouth, just out of her reach.

I will try the electrolyte solution though. Thank you so much for your help. Please do pray for her.

Your Olivia is for sure in my prayers.

I truly hope you will be able to take her to the vet this afternoon.
If her nostrils are clogged up then the fluid that came out of the beak could be related to that and her breathing has likely been compromised for a while.
The build up of fluid was maybe caused by an undetected respiratory infection or maybe pneumonia.

In order to help with her breathing, you can place her cage on the bathroom, close the door and run the shower hot to create steam in the room.
The steam will hopefully give her some relief in terms of opening the airways and making the breathing less laboured.

Thank you so much! My father saw me crying (I couldn't help it really...) and he said that we would take her to the vet in about 2 hours (after we break our fast). Thank you so much for your help!

I fed her a few seeds by hand because she didn't seem to eat from the bowl. She has been sleeping constantly and I'm praying like crazy. I'm sure she will get better soon.

Your beautiful girl is in my prayers. Aluz has given you some great advice. I'm glad your dad is willing to take her to the vet for you... what a loving and understanding dad you have. Looking forward to hearing the update!
