Default Sad Tallulah update and question

My little butterball Tallulah just passed away on my lap

I called the pet shop where I got her and even though I had her past the 30 day guarantee, they reimbursed me the $135 vet bill and will reimbursed her purchase as well.

My other 2 budgies are acting normally, eating and drinking but I'm wondering if I should start them on the antibiotic as a precaution? Or just wait and see?

I am so sorry for your loss. Since you have other birds I would do a very good cleaning of all things that they shared, did you get all 3 at the same time or did you already have the others when you got Tallulah.

Thank you...I will definitely be cleaning their cage first thing in the morning (it's going on 9pm here) I only had one budgie (Rumer) before I got Tallulah & Scout.

Since you did not have her for very long it is possible that she was ill from the beginning but was able to hide it well until recently. It is critical that you keep a very close watch on the others. If you are able to find an avian vet it would be a good idea to have them checked out so if anything was passed to them it can be treated now.

I've been searching for an avian specific vet for since I got Rumer 5 months ago (I even went as far as posting in the pet section on Craigslist) but they're all just regular vets who see birds...I'm not sure what else I can do?

I will definitely keep close watch on the other 2, but I'm worried because Tallulah was active, eating and had normal poops until this morning

I don't know where in South Carolina you live, but here is a link to an avian vet practice in SC Exotic Vet Care - Veterinary Care for Birds and Exotic Pets If they aren't near you, you can contact them as ask them who they recommend in your area.

I'm sorry for your loss of Tallulah <3

I'm incredibly sorry for the loss of little Tallulah. She was much loved and clearly will be greatly missed. You gave her the best possible life she could have had while she was on this earth

My thoughts go out to you and the flock during this difficult time.

Fly high and rest in peace, Tallulah.

Thank you... I received an email last night from someone who responded to my ad on Craigslist looking for an avian vet in my area and she confirmed that there aren't any. "There are NONE in this area. The only Avian Board certified veterinarian in the entire STATE is in Mt Pleasant, SC (just north of Charleston). He is Dr. Jose Biascchea (sp) of Exotic Vet Care. He has over 20yrs of practice." She is a waterfowl rescuer for over 7 years and has parrots as well so I figure she would know.

He is the same dr you found. The problem is Mt Pleasant is about 3 hours away from me which would be a 6 hour total drive and really wouldn't do in an emergency situation as I had with Tallulah. I will definitely call and see if they can recommend someone in my area though! Thanks for your help!

Thank you, she was my favorite

I'm very sorry for your loss of Tallulah.

I would not recommend starting Scout and Rumer on antibiotics. Antibiotics only work on bacterial infections - not on viral or fungal infections. When people or animals are given antibiotics when they are not needed, it actually does more harm than good.

As Cody indicated, it is best to keep a close eye on Rumer and Scout. Try to find an "exotic pet" veterinarian in your area that has experience with small birds. That is the best option in your current situation.
