Hello, so my 3 year old budgie suddenly got sick one day (no signs of disease prior to that day, no tail bobbing, no abnormal sleeping patterns, etc), and was laying in the bottom of her cage.
We rushed her to the vet and they put her on antibiotic shots and vitamin shots as well. She was in the vet for at least 2 weeks.
Now, with some signs of improvement, we brought her home, but we noticed her feet were a bit reddish and dark. We dismissed it as being some sort of soreness from them holding her every day for the antibiotic shot.
Anyways today I noticed the center of her feet is still pink and normal looking, but the "fingers" are all dark and she won't close her feet and can't grasp anything. She also keeps biting her feet and got herself a sore in one side.
Here's a few pictures of her feet: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet
I'm not sure if the joint (or center) of her feet are swollen, because the "fingers" seem to be kind of shriveled and "deflated".
The center seems to be normally colored, though.
The vet is supposedly a bird expert but what they did barely helped my budgie, and when we told the vet a few days back that the budgie's feet were a bit red they dismissed as being "probably something to do with the antibiotic or something".
I'm probably taking her back to the vet today, but don't know what to expect. I asked (without any suggestion from the vet
) to have the budgie's droppings analyzed and the results said she had some bacteria which the doctor said the antibiotic she was giving my budgie were directed to as well.
I don't want my budgie to lose her feet, or worse. Anyone had anything similar?
Thanks in advance.
