Follow-up CenterThreads made in the Emergency Room forum will be moved here by staff as a way to follow-up with members after their budgie emergency.
This keeps the E.R. for only the most current emergencies.
My budgie is vomiting a lot at the moment could you please advice me on how to stop this till I can get some vetinary help which I think will be on Wednesday. She is a really healthy budgie I dont know suddenly what happened to her she normally likes to feed mirrors which I have taken out but now she seems to use the steel which I give her food in plz tell me what to give to her or what medication that would help stop her vomiting. I have posted a PIC of her vomit also she is fluffed up sometimes and sleepsca lot.
Any help would be much appreciated.
She needs to see an avian vet ASAP. She is vomiting large amounts of undigested seed, meaning that she is probably losing hydration.
Can she keep anything down? If so, feed her millet soaked in Pedialyte. Put a heating pad on half of the cage so that she can stay warm and offer lots of food and drink in different parts of the cage. Cover the cage on three sides so that she feels safe.
What do her droppings look like? If they are small, watery, or dark green in color, it means that she is dehydrating.
The medicine that my avian vet uses here in Spain to stop vomiting is called Primperam, but I wouldn't recommend giving her anything until the vet can check her out.
Once budgies begin to vomit and show symptoms of illness, they are already quite sick. I hope that you can get your budgie to the vet tomorrow.
Good luck and let us know how she does! Sending positive vibes your way!
my budgie is showing all these signs green poop but some were watery which is confusing should I feed her water in syringe. How should I give her the camomile tea mixed in water and how much amount. what is Pedialyte and where can I get it? she also has started to eat a cuttle bone in large amounts thanks you for your help.
Sorry quick question what do you mean by "now she seems to use the steel which I give her food in"?
Is this steel reflective at all?
Is there vomit all over her feathers? All over the cage?
I ask because I'm trying to distinguish between regurgitating and vomit.
If it is indeed vomit and not regurgitation, I'd give her apple cider vinegar in water (1/4 teaspoon ACV to 1/2 cup water). If she has sour crop, this should help clean her crop. I'd also make her ginger root tea to help settle her tummy and kill any bad bacteria, parasites, or fungal issues that may be causing this. MAKE SURE THE TEA IS ROOM TEMPERATURE BEFORE SERVING.
If sour crop's the problem, she'll need to have her crop flushed and maybe be prescribed antibiotics.

You have been given good advice. Pedialyte is a liquid for infant's that help's them build electrolytes. Your local drug store should have something similar. I would try to make it in to the vet as soon as possible, and do the thing's suggested in the meantime...

How is your little one doing? The mixture of chamomile tea and water should be about 75:25. 75% water and 25% chamomile tea. I think slightly stronger,let's say 70:30 is okay too. Make sure the tea is room-temperatured before you add it to the water. If she doesn't want to drink out of her bowl then you can dip your finger into the water/chamomile tea mixture and let her lick it off your finger.
