Default Is avian gastric yeast curable?

So i have just been to the vet and i have a few questions (i couldnt think at the time to ask her as i was just trying to take everything in). so i took my new bird to the vet and have found out he has avian gastric yeast, the breeder i got him from asked me to tell him if the vet says he has it because he has the medication for it. Although the vet told me its not fully curable, you can get them back healthy but they may show the signs again a couple of times a year or once a year or something like that then they would have to go on the medication again. she said i would be taking a risk to put him with my other bird as she will get it too if she doesnt already. so then i have the breeder telling me other things saying it is fully curable and they become immune to it etc (but then again if my other one isnt immune i will have to do this all over again). he said that 95% of budgies have it. i got him to be a friend for my other one but i dont want to run the risk of my other one getting it. im not sure which advice to take?

Also the quarantine cage has lots of nice toys and everything in it would i be able to use them again for my other bird or the cage aswell i was wanting to use too?

I'm sorry your budgie was diagnosed with avian gastric yeast.
The information given by your vet is accurate.

These links should be helpful:
https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...ric-yeast.html

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...dgerigars.html

As for the cage, toys and assorted accessories, after everything is thoroughly washed and disinfected, another budgie can be housed and use the same items.

I'm wishing your budgie a steady recovery and hope his health condition remains as stabilized as possible.
Best of luck!

This forum has many resources which can help you understand Avian Gastric Yeast and how to best treat it.

Take the time to carefully read all of the articles regarding it in the Budgie Article Section of the forum.

As you will see there, Sodium Benzoate is a great help him dealing with the problem.

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...ric-yeast.html

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...ric-yeast.html

https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...dgerigars.html

Additionally, read through other members threads who have also asked questions about the disease.

You should be able to get the answers to all your questions.
I suggest you make a list of any questions you feel were not covered after carefully reviewing those resources and post them in this thread.
At that time, we can advise you further and/or will recommend you discuss them with your Avian Vet.

so i've read all those links, does it mean it can be curable but some birds it cant be and their symptoms flare up again every now and then? should i risk my other bird? the breeder says he wont do a full return unless theres a serious health issue.. he says to ring his vet and they will tell me that it is fully curable.. im not sure what to do i haven't bonded with the new one much since its only been a week so i wouldn't mind returning it as i care for my other one so much and would hate for her to get sick and die.

Even when a bird is an AGY carrier it may end up showing false negatives when the fecal samples are tested.

As to whether or not the disease is "completely" curable, my answer would have to be no.
The disease can be controlled so the bird is symptom free and tests may show up as negative but I believe once the disease has been contracted it remains in the bird's body and that bird can be considered a carrier of AGY.

I'm not an Avian Vet and don't have professional training so what I've told you comes purely from what I've read and deductive reasoning.

If you want 100% guarantees and aren't happy with the answers your Avian Vet has given you, then I'd recommend you do more individual research as well as contact other Avian Vets for their opinions.

Best wishes!

so i went to the breeder today and gave my bird to him as he said he can do the medication for him until hes better, the vet i went to just gave me a normal mouth syringe to give the medication but he said his vet/he uses the one that goes all the way down to the crop and then the medication goes straight to there and he hasnt had a problem with it and fixed heaps of birds with it before. i havent rang his vet yet but he says if i ring them they will tell me it can be curable and he also said that ones that get the disease or have it shown in their poop like mine has aren't carriers but some birds are, but then again i know about the false negative results and stuff and that confuses me. he says his vet also said what they like to do is try and make them build immunity to it. the vet he goes to is one of the best ones in my city and its a bird only vet. im so confused right now whether or not i should trust this bird with my other bird! he says 90% of budgies have it. he even asked me if ive read up on it and everything ive read is what you guys have been saying so im not sure what hes seen?

We can't answer the question of what your breeder has seen.

You've made your decision on how you wish to handle your budgie's problems so I'm closing this thread as I see no benefit in any further discussion on the matter.
