Default Bird Vomiting Whole Seeds

My budgie just started vomiting whole seeds up and I am very concerned with his health. I am not able to go to the vet because my parents are out of town and the vets near me either don't deal with birds or are very far away. If there are any remedies I can try to do for my bird, it would be gladly appreciated if he is sick.

Austin,

How long has this been going on?
Make sure your budgie is warm enough and keep him quiet.

It would be best for you to find a friend or neighbor who will be willing to help you get your budgie to the vet as only a vet is going to be able to properly diagnose your budgie's illness and prescribe the correct treatment.

Your next best option is to contact one of the on-line vet services for assistance.

It's just happened today from what I've seen. Also I don't think many of my friends or neighbors are willing to help me. I will see if I can get any help online for him. He hasn't vomited in a while now so I'm hoping he is okay. He still acts normal and doesn't appear to be sick except for the vomiting.

Hi.

Budgies are MASTERS at hiding illnesses when they can. It is an instinct, left over from the wild, that they have never lost.

They just don't vomit unless there is a problem - anything from an impacted crop, to a nasty infection. I know what you've said about the veterinary issue - but this is potentially life threatening and you need to try and get your bird seen to before it gets worse and may be too late.

I really don't want to alarm or upset you, but what I've said is correct.

Why not take the initiative and approach the local vet (better than no one!), tell them that you have a sick bird and your situation and ask if you can clean cages, or mow their lawn - anything - in trade for a consultation. The worst they can say is no and you will have tried!

Let us know how you get on? Good luck!

Hi have you changed the seed you are feeding him recently? What are his droppings like? watery and green? Is he sitting with his eyes closed and looking puffy or lethargic at all?
Budgies do hide illness as said an avian vet is the best and most reliable answer we can advise. Keep his cage warm and clean make sure his water is clean and he is eating.

Sorry all, I went to bed last night and made sure he was all situated and comfy. His droppings look normal and solid. I haven't changed what I am feeding him recently but I started giving him some broccoli in his diet, but I don't think that would cause him to throw up unless it was spoiled. He seems to act normal and is not excessively sleeping or constantly puffy. He still loves being constantly active and flying around the room when he is out of his cage. I will try to get him to a vet ASAP as my parents are coming back on Monday evening. I will see if I can get any help from neighbors but I have a very busy schedule this weekend for a lot of school events so I will try my best to help my little friend out.

Hi Austin lets hope it was a one of event and he is ok. When you do get him to the vet ask them to do a faecal check take some clean paper and place it in his cage before you go. Also obtain some probiotics these are very beneficial for gut and digestion.
Apple Cider Vinegar but it must have Mother in it is also very good.

For probiotics, should I feed my bird some plain yogurt or should I order an antibiotic online? Also, I do not have any ACV. I just came home from an event and my bird had vomitted more because seeds were sprayed out from his cage. He looks a bit more lethargic now so I'm hoping he'll be fine until I can get some help.

Update: His poop has turned wet and either very dark green or black and it looks very shiny

Hi there, Austin. Please don't feed your budgie yogurt as budgies can't cope with lactose the same way that humans do. You should give probiotics that are specially formulated for budgies and birds.

Have you called your parents to ask them what you should do about your budgie? It sounds like he needs to be seen by a vet as soon as possible, as his symptoms are getting worse. I hope that you can arrange something soon and that your bird makes a quick and full recovery!

Alright. I'll see if I can find any probiotics online and I have called my parents. They said if Kiwi isn't better by the time they come back, they'll take him in to the vet. Good thing we already have a smaller cage for traveling so it shouldn't be too much of an issue.
