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.
Right., I've been on the phone with the vet and they recommended massaging the abdomen and giving fluids to gush his system though a syringe both of which I have done. There's nothing.
It is late at night here and he's usually asleep by now. He's still eating small amounts. I have been told I can get him in with a general vet tomorrow morning and that we can try a form of laxative treatment then, but there's no out of hours vets in my town, most they can do is an over the phone service.
Phoenix is 4 years old and hasn't passed anything more than fluid in 5 hours. I dont know when he last passed a stool other than that he has only passed around 20 in the last twenty four hours. Any help would be greatly appreciated if you can advise any more home treatments.
I don't drive so I can't get him to an out of town vet either.
(He is the budgie that was passing blood last week)

Would maybe a steamy room help? I know that helps with egg binding, but it also helps with dehydration. If there is something more happening, it will also help to relax the muscles and allow something (hopefully) to pass).
The fact that he's still eating is a good sign though. Is he drinking? Poor baby. I'm sorry, but I didn't see the other thread so I don't know all of the details.
Try to get him to eat green foods, water as often as possible is his vent pasted or is it looking normal? He really needs expert treatment and examination by an avian vet. He can not continue to eat if he doesn't go soon.
