Default third day on enrofloxacin and noticed a small amount of blood under Sky's cere



Sorry for the bad quality, it's not a lot but I'm worried it's from the medicine? The vet isn't open until tomorrow and I'm supposed to give him his next dose of 0.04 tonight and I don't know if I should stop or continue until further directions from the vet tomorrow. I know that with human antibiotics you can't just stop them. Vet gave him enrofloxacin because of a ongoing sneeze he's had in hopes that it helps.

I can't see any blood in the picture you posted, perhaps Sky has been rubbing his face on the cage. I have given the same medicine many times but never at that dosage, the highest dosage I have given is .02ml. If the cage in the background is the cage he lives in it is way too small, does he get out of the cage time and if so how much?

It's right under his beak, I know the pic isn't good I'm sorry /: my phone is not great, but it is there. He does rub on his perch quite a bit especially now that he's molting. But why would blood show up? It's definitely not anything else /: do you think I should halt the medication tonight? I'm not sure if that would hurt him.

I take him out quite often during the day. He likes roaming around my bed and climbing the covers and pillows. I know his cage is pretty small compared to the bigger one I had for my other bird, but he's so happy in it and energetic that whenever I considered a bigger cage I didn't want to cause him any distress with a new home that was all new.

He may have just scratched himself, it is not actively bleeding is it? Is there any blood in the cage?

It isn't actively bleeding, it's just weird since it's never happened. And no active signs of blood on his cage.

Also about the cage situation, do you think I should get a bigger cage for him? I've been debating it for a while, but like I said he is happy where he is so I just am never sure

Yes, I think you should get a larger cage, bigger is always better when it comes to cage size. One that is rectangular and wider than it is tall is the best choice. The bird should be able to flap its wings and move around as much as possible in the cage and a larger cage will enable the bird to have various play zones within the cage.
Here is a link to a popular cage that is a good size.

I agree with Cody. I can’t see anything in the photo because of the blur, but most likely your budgie had scratched it on something.

I was also going to make mention of the cage. The link Cody posted for you is a good basic cage style that we recommend. Also nice is a “flight cage” such as this one https://www.amazon.com/Parakeet-Cock...%2C197&sr=8-11 This is an example of another great style which comes in different brands.

Whatever larger cage you end up finding, make sure it’s not round, and it has a bar spacing of no more than 1/2” (1 cm).
