Default Budgie’s cere trouble (one nostril enlarged?)

Hello,

I have come to this forum before for advice to do with my Budgie Ribbon’s cere. Originally the issue seemed to be that the cere was both dry and over growing over one nostril and it was recommended I take her to an avian vet. Coincidentally the symptoms seemed to clear up and she went back to having what appeared like good health for the past 3 months. Unfortunately now I notice the same nostril is now no longer covered by cere but it seems it’s almost collapsed and now her left nostril is almost a gaping hole? These symptoms came on quickly I don’t know what she has and she’s been burning through flavoured cuttlebones like crazy (she chewed two up in one day) and she’s obviously irritated and scratches at her cere. Has anyone witnessed these symptoms before or is it just safe to say the avian vet is the way to go in this situation?

Thanks for any advice!

Ribbon definitely needs to be seen by an Avian Vet and I would encourage you to have her seen as soon as possible.

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.

Please be sure to update us with regard to Ribbon's condition after her Avian Vet appointment.

Best wishes for your little girl.

I definitely agree with the above. It seems she broke off a large portion of her cere, which needs immediate attention to ensure it won't be a problem.

Best wishes for your sweet girl!
