Exclamation Poorly Eye and Ear visible

About two weeks ago I went to clean my budgie out and noticed his eye was all red and looked sore. So I took him to the vets who gave us two items:

1. Fucithalmic Vet - For the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis (eye infection) in dogs, cats and rabbits. 1 drop in the eye twice a day.

2. Pain relief, I think it might have been Inflacam. It was a liquid in the mouth. One drop per day. I will find the exact details asap.

One week later we have now finished both and he seems fine in himself, he never really was down/off colour.

The attached is how he looks now, one pic of each side of him. The eye is considerably better to how it was.

His eye is not right, it is closed, at times you do see his eye ball inside only just so its not totally shut.

His ear has become visible, now I thought it was from when I was dosing him I spilt a drop and it got him wet so when he dried he'd revert back but has not.

Any idea what to do now? Do I just leave him be? He is as happy as ever so not sure whats best.

Welcome to the forums!

Did you take him to an avian specialized vet?
I don't know how your budgie's eye looked before, but to me it doesn't look healed at all, especially if he's unable to fully open it.
Does he have discharge on the eye and ear?
Given the fact your budgie has finished treatment, it would be a good idea to take him back in for a follow-up appointment at the vet's.
His beak is also very elongated, I hope he is able to eat well.

Poor little guy! It's good you got him to a vet! His left eye still looks quite bad, so if it doesn't improve, I would take him back to the vet since he might need some more ointment for his eye. Also, his beak appears to be overgrown. You might want to have an avian vet (an experienced one!) use a Dremel(?) on it to file it down. You might want to look into why his beak might be too long. I think liver disease and vitamin A deficiency can cause overgrown beaks. Also, not have any toys for him to gnaw on (Ole. Kabob, pumice beak buffers, etc.) can also cause overgrown beaks.

I don't have a local avian vet unfortunately, the nearest is a few hours drive away so not ideal to transport him that far, I had that discussion with his vet when we saw them

It has not healed 100% at all, all it has done is lessen the redness and dry up. It does not and did not have any discharge. At the time I thought maybe he had scratched it for some reason but don't see how/why really.

He is eating fine. The vet trimmed his beak but to be honest when I do it I do it shorter so will get a bit more off. I trim his beak and nails easily myself, have done for years as had budgies for about 30 years or so (since a child). He has cuttlefish, blocks and some perches to gnaw/rub his beak/nails down on so all is well there. He goes through phases were he does it alot or not much at all, at the moment seems not so much so needs a bit of my help to keep them short but I have not had to do it for ages. A few years back he regularly went to the vets to have both trimmed as would not use his cuttlefish but for some reason he started doing it again

I will take him back to the vet, they have suggested looking at him again as well so I will do that this week.

Thanks for responding

Avian vets often use gentamycin for eye and ear infections.if there is redness around ear, there are possible sinus issues. An avian vet can us a micro tube to extract infection out of the E tube. then apply topical gentamycin and oral antibiotic. Best wishes. Jo Ann

Hi and welcome
Sorry to hear your little one is feeling bad! That does look like a pretty severe infection/inflammation.

You've been given great advice and I hope he feels better soon! He's a very handsome little man

Keep us posted!
