I also agree that garlic is NOT appropriate to give to budgies for any reason. It sounds like a good idea to mention to your vet to look for Avian Gastric Yeast (AGY), or possibly other diseases which can affect digestion. At least an infection of some sort, as these symptoms aren’t normal. If your avian vet’s answers don’t seem to be satisfying you, then I’d look for another one. Unfortunately not all avian vets are good ones. Looking forward to an update after the vet re-check.

Yesterday I had a vet check and he said that she is all fine . The vomiting is due to overeating only. I also had her nails trimmed. she was bleeding a bit when her toe nail was cut inside. she was fine but now today is fluffed up and feet is warm . when she perched on my finger her weight was bit less.

Is she continuing to vomit? Was it an avian vet that saw her? It is not normal for a budgie to be fluffed up during waking hours, is she active and eating and drinking? A budgie's weight is recorded in grams, a very small amount, and really would not be noticeable just sitting on your finger do you have a gram scale that you could weigh her on every day? Did the vet do any tests, without testing anything, it is not possible to know that there is not any bacteria or fungal problems in the system. If she was not exhibiting symptoms of illness it would not be an issue but because of the vomiting and being fluffed up it should be looked into.

she is not vomiting now. she had stopped vomiting two weeks earlier only. It was a regular vet. Now my other bird is in another cage and she does not play when she is alone in the cage so i cannot make out whether she is active or not.

update

I observed and saw that she is holding one leg up whole day. so she may be in pain as her leg was hurt as mentioned earlier.
Now at this point of time, she is chirping well and not so much fluffy.Hope it will get normal soon...

hi! There is an update for you
Today I had put my other budgie together with chiku for sometime and she was as usual playful and happy.

she was as usual displacing chiku from all activities and taking over. It it fun to see.
she is still very fluffy but it will gradually go away as she is not ill.

hi!
Today i had a vet checkup again as she had started vomiting again and was sometimes sitting down on the floor planking . The vet said that she has some digestive problems and needs to be checked.He gave a kind of tonic for twice a day. He said the she needs to be brought for checkup again after two days.He also restricted he veggies for fifteen days. I feed her the green millet spray picked up directly from the plant and he tells that she is not able to digest that.sometimes the pollens or the seeds are not good.

Is the vet an Avian Vet or a regular vet?

What specific medication has the vet recommended?

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.
