Default Any advice and opinions appreciated.

Our 5 month old baby boy Tyni is sick. It all started yesterday morning early when he started vomitting. Took him as an emergency to the avian vet who found his throat to be swollen and sore. He thinks the cause is an erlergic reaction to a natural wood branch he had and had chewed the day before. He was given an anti inflammatory injection and I was told to coat his seed and pellets with sunflower oil so it would help lubricate when he eats. Also a little sugar and Avipro plus in his water.
After getting home by the evening he had quite a lot to eat and thankfully kept it down. He is still eating today and has flown around the room a couple times also some chirping. The part that's worrying me is that apart from these things he is sleeping quite a lot and is puffed up while resting. Unfortunately the avian vet is not available to ask until tomorrow. I can't believe this is happining we have only had him for about 5 weeks. So yes just wondering if anyone had any thoughts and do you think the puffed sleeping is to be expected. He is still alert and his feathers go back to normal when eating.

I'm glad you were able to get help so quickly for your little guy.

I'm really unsure what to tell you here, and I'm sure one of the more experienced members will be able to assist you.
Until then, I would make sure you are keeping your boy in a cage with three sides covered and keep the room he's in warm. I'd also try and keep some music or tv on in the background so he feels a bit safer right now.

It's best to keep him quiet for a couple of days as his body needs time to rest.
Just like when people get sick, it takes rest for the body to fight off an illness and heal.

As long as he is eating, drinking and pooping normally, I would not worry about the fact that he is a bit fluffed and sleeping more than normal. This will continue for a couple of days.

Best wishes to Tyni for a full and speedy recovery.

Thanks for the advice it does make me feel a little easier. He has just had a long feed and had a good tweet and squawk before that so hopefully he is on the mend. He is resting again now. Just goes to show though nothing can be trusted these days that natural wood was sold as a bird branch I'm certainly going to be a lot more carful what I buy for him.

Do you know what type of wood it was or if it had been treated with a preservative?

Here is a list of woods that are safe for budgies and how to clean them.

Bird; Birds: Safe, Toxic Trees, Woods. Safe Tree Wood. Parrots. Parrot cages.

@S1m0n would you mind posting a picture of the branch/where you got it/brand? I just ordered a boatload of natural wood branches online and I'm a little nervous now ;;

Here is a link I had 2 one inside the cage and one outside.
Natural Living Perch, Y Shape https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000WFCE..._0OfXxb34R3C4T

If the vet is 100% certain the perch is what caused Tyni's illness, I suggest contacting both Amazon and Natural Living to let them know about the problem.

Yes I've actually just done that. He is as sure as he can be there don't seem to be any other possibilities especially as we had found he had been chewing it the day before. Apparently it's something he has come across before. Looking at that listing they actually don't say what the wood is but I noticed a comment saying they seem to use various types.

Yes, I read that information on your link as well.
I find it very concerning that they don't specify the type of wood used.
