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.
Hi everyone, so i have had my little budgie for a year now and the past week he got sick with some mouth infection and we took him to a vet but the vets a regular one and so they gave us anti biotics and it seems to keep him holding on but just the last few days it seems like hes just not going to last anymore and its killing me, i dont want him to go, its not fair its too soon. Hes just not himself at ALL, hes not active, his poop is watery and dark brown, hes fluffy but we have a heater for him, he was throwing up 5 days ago but hasnt since, hes so weak he cant even fly anymore. He can hold himself up on his perch and he has a crazy appetite and wants to eat all the time and then sleep for hours. He loves us to hold him and he tugs himself under our chins and just sleeps. I dont know what to do. Our avain vet that we know of needs an appointment and that appointment is in like a week and a hakf and i just dont think hes got that long. Please if u know any good vets online, even if it costs money can u pls list them below? I just want him to get better
hes drinking his antibiotic water a lot and i think thats the only thing that has kept him alive, btw he weighs 23 grams
Im giving him seed mix and some veggies and rice
Assasin I am truly so sorry to hear how sick your budgie is, where about and what country do you live in ? This will help with vets.
I live in a country called kuwait, theres not many vets here and as i said the avain vet takes a while to go to the appointment, i was hoping that there would be some online that are good but idk which one is the best
There are online Avian vets, Some will do consults via Skype.
Google Avian Vets and look through the list. I will try to look as well. In the mean time keep your budgie extra warm, feed him some pedialyte here is a link.
