Post Red sollen eye

My budgie seamore has a long beak. She can eat properly still, but I just filed her beak today and when I held her I noticed how skinny she was, so I was wrong about her eating well. I have not been giving her millet as I thought she was eating so now I am. But I also noticed that she has a sight red/pink tint around both eyes, not on or in them, just around on the skin. one eye seems to be ever so slightly swollen on the bottom. Should be worried? or did she probably just scratch herself and it will go down. I just noticed it today and I don't think she had it a few days ago.
-thanks!

Please get her to an avian vet asap. You can use an ophthalmic -no hormone- ointment to comfort her eye a little bit until you can her to a doctor. Right now maybe it's itching her and she might scratch that area. It's better if you take her to a doctor.
Please update us on the results, ok?

yeah I was worried about ptisscosis since one of my other birds died of unknown causes but I think it may of been pticcosis.
I have a lot of avain vets in the area, they're just really expensive, but I'll schedule an appointment.

ophthalmic -no hormone- ointment is probably at Meijer or Walmart, i'll make a trip, thank you for the suggestion

You can use a sterile saline solution to rinse out her eyes and the area around them until you get her into the vet.

You can make saline solution - or just buy it. It may help to soothe your budgies eyes. DO NOT use antibiotic ointment meant for other animals. There can be ingredients in it that WILL give little birds a heart attack (no kidding)

Sore eyes are more indicative of breathing issues, as eye infections in budgies are uncommon.

It's good you are going to take your bird to an avian vet

shoot. Seamore (the sick budgie) has been passing grey-ish droppings. It has to be pticcosis.
However her redness left after I clipped her nails and applied the ointment. she was just scratching them.

luckily I had my mating pair tested before breeding so they are clear and haven't come in contact with Seamore. my other pair was tested by their previous owner and also have had no contact with seamore. so some good news.

Seamore was not cleared as all my budgies lived in a flock together and we only tested 2 budgies because if they did/did not have it the vet was assuming all of them did/did not have it. So Seamore possibly could have been carrying pticcosis without infecting my other birds since they were separated into breeding pairs after the test. Seamore was paired up with my now deceased budgie Olive who came from a carnival attraction and was housed with almost 300 other birds. Olive must have been infected and since the diesies lies dormant I didn't notice any signs until before he died, so Seamore is just now showing signs almost a year after olive's death.
(Sorry that's a lot)

I'm lucky to live near a very well-off city with lots of avian vets just minutes away, however they are RIDICULOUSLY expensive just to go in and get a diagnosis! But when I was on the phone they said if I went online or called it was cheaper and I could get medication that way too. Should I settle for just buying the medication and not having a vet intervine? do the grey droppings mean for sure she has pticcosis?
I will take her to the vet if I really shoud'nt just medicate her myself, my parents just really don't want to pay for the vet trip if they can.

I have a lot of experience with medicating a variety of animals (+ my mom's a nurse so she can sometimes help with non-human patients)so I'm not unsure about my abilities but about if medicating my self even has a possibility of working

She's much more comfortable without having to worry about her eye, she's chirping and being normal again right now so at least she's happy while she waits

I merged the last four posts you made in this thread.

As explained in my previous private message regarding posts made in several threads,
rather than creating additional adjacent posts as you think of something to add, please simply click the Edit button and update your prior post.
This will help keep the forum less cluttered and makes things much easier to read and understand.

For the health and well-being of your budgie, it is recommended you have the budgies properly diagnosed by an Avian Vet and follow the treatment protocol prescribed.

Providing First Aid prior to getting a budgie to a vet is an "emergency" solution to assist the bird until proper treatment can be obtained.

The members of the forum are not trained Avian Vets.
Self-diagnosis and treatment of illness is not recommended.
Using the wrong medication or the wrong dosage can result in more problems that what the budgie is experiencing initially.

Avian Vets are expensive.
The forum recommends setting up an emergency fund in order to be prepared for any medical emergencies or illnesses that may arise with your budgies.

https://talkbudgies.com/emergency-roo...t-aid-kit.html

Best wishes for your little one.

Please update us on her condition in this thread after you've taken her to the Avian Vet.

alright, thank you, I have her an appointment for next Wednesday my step-grandma is super nice and is paying for part of her appointment! I will update everyone later

the vet wants me to collect samples so I have some newspaper on top of the grate to catch droppings in his little quarantine cage so that we can get the samples to a lab quicker if I have everything ready.

Excellent! It is very kind of your step-grandma to help you by paying for a portion of the cost of the appointment.

We'll be looking forward to an update on Seamore after her Wednesday visit to the vet.
