Default Large Growth

Hi all,

Not a happy post really. My 5 year old female budgie has a large growth - she's already seen an avian vet who recommended wing amputation. The earliest he could do it was this Wednesday but I'm away on holiday for the week (with my birds).

I've contacted an avian vet here who is going to see her tomorrow and has said he can operate if needs be. To be honest though the growth has increased in size the last few days, and looks darker in colour. To me it doesn't even look attached to the wing, so I'm not holding out much hope for an amputation being the answer. Furthermore I'm worried about putting her through the op - the removal of a wing isn't such a big deal for her as she can't fly anyway.

Just seeking some advice here really. Has anyone ever seen a growth like it? I'm assuming it's cancerous.

Tomorrow could be a very sad day unfortunately ?.

I'm very sorry for what you are going through with your budgie.
I can't say that I have ever been in a situation where one of my birds have developed a growth on their wings.
Given how rapidly the growth is progressing, some urgency is needed in terms of addressing the issue and for this it is vital to have the professional opinion of a trusted avian vet specialist.
How is your budgie holding up in general? Despite the growth, have you noticed a decline on her activity levels and a chance on her behaviour?
If your budgie is in overall good shape health wise then the chances for her to go through surgery well are higher.

I'm keeping your budgie in my prayers and I'm wishing the very best for her.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I fear it won't be good news but will do what's best for her.

She is otherwise absolutely fine - eating, pottering about, playing and bossing her mate around like always!! The wing is annoying her though as the growth has pushed it down, so her flights keep catching.

Worried about how my male will react also if the worst happens as they're a bonded pair ?. Sad this time has come but she's had a good five years to be fair - she has deformed feet (presumably from the nest) and I sort of rescued her from a garden centre as I felt sorry for her (they had dowel perched and she kept falling off). We have always said she probably wouldn't have lived so long if she'd gone to a 'general' home who didn't know much about birds. She's a bit of a special case haha.

I'm so very sorry for the problems your little girl is experiencing with her wing.

I pray the surgery will be a success and that her recovery will be a full and speedy one.

I have you and your little girl in my prayers and will be looking forward to your update with regard to how she pulls through the surgery and faces her recovery.

Best wishes

I am very, very sorry to hear about your budgie! I hope that the surgery succeeds. I'm glad to hear that you addressed the problem so quickly....we lost a bird to a tumor that we did not treat soon enough. Wishes for a speedy recovery for your little girl.
