Default Budgie has a ruptured air sac?

Hi

A little while ago my budgie had an accident and banged herself into a wall. At first she seemed stunned but fine and was still able to fly. Over time though she's become much more reclusive and was struggling to fly. Her chest as well started to swell like she has swallowed a golf ball and tends to lean on her perch along with her mirror and only climbs around the cage not wanting to fly at all.

She is over ten years old and not the friendliest of budgies and I'm afraid that taking her to an avian vet may frighten her. (If I can even find one round where I live) I'm really worried. Is there anything I can do?

It sounds like she does need urgent treatment preferably by an avian vet or at least an exotics vet. Some vets do house calls you could phone them and see if that's possible. With budgies time is of the essence they can go down hill really fast. By the way a mirror would be the reason she is not friendly is not a good thing for budgies to have they will bond to that thinking it's another budgie. I'm sure some experienced members will post soon but I'm pretty sure they will advise a vet if possible today. Hope it goes OK and they will have a treatment for her.

Hopefully you have your budgie quarantined in a hospital cage at this time and are keeping her warm.

Give her https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...te-recipe.html

Whenever a bird has suffered an injury or is ill, you are doing it a dis-service if you do not immediately seek out medical attention for it.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

Having your new budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

If there are no certified Avian Vets then take her to a vet that has experience with small birds.

Thank you for the advice I've booked an appointment with an avian vet nearby and hopefully they will be able to treat her.

I'm sorry to hear of your budgies condition, and that a major reason it was prolonged was your hesitancy to put faith in an avian vet. Honestly, I would be more afraid of her passing from the condition (not to mention suffering more first) rather than having her frightened by a visit to the vet. Sure, she'll be scared, but you have to ask yourself, isn't that better than the alternative?

It sounds like your girl has been needing treatment for some time now. The best and really only responsible thing we can advise you to do over the internet, is to take your little one to an avian vet.

EDIT: posting at the same time as FaeryBee.

Please let us know the vet visit goes!
