Default Sick budgie

My budgie has removed some feather from round her vent. She is currently sitting with feathers puffed up and is spitting out the odd seeds. She is breathting heavily. Her dropping are green and very runny. If you can help it would be appreciated and would be happy to provide more information. I am not very experienced with sick birds.


Female budgie
Heavy breathing
Puffed up feather
Poo gathered around vent (has been cleaned)
No feathers around the vent
Some seeds have been spat out
The poo itself is green and runny.
Any advice would be good thanks

As I said on your other post, see if you can find an avian vet nearby.

Your first course of actions should always be to call an Avian Vet at the first sign of injury or illness in a budgie.
By the time a budgie shows symptoms of illness, it is already very sick.

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.

Locate an Avian Vet

International Vets Register
Vets

Bird Vets Near You
Veterinarians.com

If you are unable to find an Avian Vet, then take your budgie to an Exotic Pet Veterinarian that has experience with small birds.

In the meantime, give your budgie Guardian Angel/Pedialyte and be sure to keep her warm.

I've removed your duplicate thread from the Introductory forum.

Please update us on your bird's condition in this thread.

Sending positive thoughts and healing energy for your budgie to have a full and complete recovery.

Any updates? Have you taken your budgie to an avian vet yet? Sounds like she is very ill. She can not go on thriving and living long without treatment. I hope you have gotten her help.

Hey everyone, thanks for the advice I got her to a vet the day after I posted this and we got some antibiotics, The sneezing and heavy breathing went away and she seemed to be getting better and more active. She didn't look to good again yesterday so I made a vet's appointment for her this morning but when I woke she was already gone 😞 Thanks for the help and sorry I didn't reply as it took a while to figure how to use the forums.

I'm very sorry your little girl didn't make it.
If you wish, you may make a memorial or tribute thread for her in the "In Memory" section of the forum.

Fly high and soar freely sweet girl; rest peacefully now little one.
