Hello All..I really need your opinion on a lump on my female budgie. She is very active and do not show any sign of illness but i noticed this a week back and i am worried. Have pictures of her ( one in yellow)
Hi! :welcome: to Talk Budgies
Your picture didn't show up.
You need to take your budgie into an Avian Vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
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.
If there are no Avian Vets near you, find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience with small birds.
A regular vet would be your next choice and that individual can always contact an Avian Vet for a consultation if necessary.
Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

There is no photo attached. The best advice any one of us can give you, photo or not, is to have your budgie examined by an avian vet. A vet who is trained in and qualified to see birds, will be able to give a proper diagnosis. There are so many things a ‘lump’ can be.
