Default Sick birdy

Hi all

My little girl Bluey last Sunday started what I would call being sick. About an hour after she’d eaten she would bring it all back up and spit it out. Then in between she would bring up a clear liquid, flicking it everywhere.

Last Wednesday I took to to the vet who checked her over. She said that she couldn’t feel any compaction in her crop and by Wednesday she was a lot brighter, back to her usual self as long as she didn’t eat. The vet gave me Baytrill, 0.06ml to be given daily for 10 days.

The thing is that since she’s been on the antibiotics she keeps her food down all day but brings it back up either first thing the next morning or last night she brought it up as we were trying to put her to bed.

Do you know if she should be showing signs of improvement by now? I would be grateful for any advice or suggestions, maybe someone might think something else is wrong.

Insights and advice gratefully received.

Sara

I cannot offer any advice, but one question is whether the vet you saw is a certified avian vet.

Hugs for you and Bluey and I hope she's feeling better soon.

I hope you're taking her to an Avian Vet.
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.

You need to call the vet back and let them know about this problem right away.
The fix may be something as simple as changing the medication she's being given.

In the meantime, have you changed her diet (seed or pellet) over the last few weeks?
The important thing is to see that she's eating and pooping normally, and give her food that she keeps down. Budgies (for their size) eat a lot and can't afford to go long without eating. Deborah has given you good advice.
