Default Help and advice needed!

Hi, I've had my new budgie for a month. He was really lively at the weekend but has been quiet this week. Today he has spent almost the whole day asleep and regurgitated his food, he is also shaking a little. The vets is really expensive so wasn't sure whether he was just having an off day or whether he is sick? Let me know what you think? Thanks

If he was my bird I would be taking him to the vet. Things can go from bad to worse quickly so it's best to get him examined by an avian vet asap. What do his droppings look like?

If he was lively and now is lethargic and vomiting, then he is sick and needs a vet... Good luck, let us know what the vet says.

I agree completely, I know vets are expensive. There are more homeopathic ways to help budgies get well with more minor ailments like a cold or diarrhea, but this is not something that can be cured at home. The fact that he's showing these symptoms could be fatal

Please try and get him to a vet ASAP! Keep us posted on his condition. Best wishes to you and your little one

Hi and to Talk Budgies!

Budgies mask symptoms of illness so generally by the time they exhibit signs of being sick they are very ill already.

Please get your little fellow in to see an Avian Vet right away.
Many Avian Vets will help you set up a payment plan if needed.

In the meantime, please be sure he is warm enough. If he is shaking he may be chilled.

Offer him millet soaked in electrolyte solution.

Please post an update to let us know if you've seen the vet yet and give us an update on your little fellow's condition.

To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Hi i have been told from the vet that sometimes a bird can shake if it is cold.
You can cover the cage with a towel and put a small hot water bottle in there to keep him warm. You should also take him to the vets, as one of my birds has similar symptoms and was diagnosed with an infection.
