You need to purchase a small cage to use as a hospital and quarantine cage.
Every member should have such as cage as part of their preparations in case their budgie ever becomes ill or injured.
Additionally, you should already have a Birdie First Aid kit set up.
You can find information about Birdie First Aid Kits as well as Basic First Aid information in the Budgie Articles and Stickies.
One of the items to keep on hand in the Birdie First Aid Kit is a Sterile Saline Solution (without preservatives) which people use in their eyes. This can be purchased as a local pharmacy.
If you are concerned there are still feather particles in your budgie's eye, then very gently rinse the eye with Sterile Saline rather than tap water.
If he's only vomited one time, then I'd suggest you simply keep an eye on him for now. If, however, he vomits again, then you should take him in to an Avian Vet for a check-up.
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.
I'm moving this thread to the "Follow-up" section of the forum.
Please update us on Bud's condition in this thread.
