Default Crop infection help


My budgie has a crop infection , he keeps vomiting and his crop is swollen , he had this before a few months ago but it cleared up on its own after a week, I have rang the vets and nobody will see him ("cos they don't treat budgies") ..... so annoyed.

If anyone can recommend and natural remedies it would be great. I read somewhere that cold black tea was good for crop infections, is this true?

I believe there are Avian Vets in your area.

Avian Vets | Parrot Veterinary Services

If your budgie had the same illness a few months ago and then got better, he may have never actually overcome the illness -- it could have simply gone into remission.
Crop infections and vomiting can be a sign of Avian Gastric Yeast.

The only way to know what is going on with your budgie is to have him properly diagnosed and treated.
It is important to realize that an infection may be viral, bacterial or fungal.
Each type of infection has a different treatment protocol.

If an Avian Vet is not an option, then contact an Exotic Veterinarian that has experience with small birds.

For Countries with no Avian Veterinarians:

While it is very challenging for people who live in countries with no Avian Vets, there are steps you can take to help ensure your budgies' health.

With the right motivation, you can work with a regular or veterinarian to get the proper care for your budgie(s).

You will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life.

We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet.
With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

When you develop a good relationship with a regular veterinarian, that individual can collaborate via telephone or Skype with Avian Veterinarians in other countries if necessary to get assistance in appropriate diagnosing and prescribing treatment for your Avian companions.

Another option is to contact an on-line Avian Vet for assistance.
