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.
I am going through a similar experience, I will echo what I have read and many people say that most times they hide these illnesses to the last second. It is said that for every day you notice them sick is equal to about 7 days. I personally think taking to the vet will give the best odds for survival.
From my end and my birds the variables are many and difficult to diagnose.
I am currently waiting on 2 lab samples with the hope of getting a diagnosis.
For immediate advice I would say to ensure your bird is kept warm and hydrated & fed. Keeping him/her as stress free as possible.
I would post here as much as you can. Such as- his/her diet, Poop consistency, temperature ,changes in behavior , nasal discharge, blood, injury, vomit etc.. or anything further to help diagnose best.
I currently have kept the temperature where my parakeet rests between 82-92 degrees Fahrenheit. She is ruffled just like yours is showing. I think this is extremely important to ensure. Pedialyte is an oral electrolyte that was recommended to me, I made the homemade mixture and may make a difference. I will send you the link that was just given to me.
Hopefully there will be more advice for you here and if there is anything I can help. Please let me know.
Those symptoms cover a lot of budgie problems unfortunately the best advice is to your bird to a avian vet as soon as possible. Keep her extra warm , what colour is her poop and is she drinking more than normal?
If possible get some pediolyte into her use a syringe . She needs to be assessed by a vet . Please let us know how you go.
