Hello,

My Fluffy friend, ever since this morning, has been keeping his left eye shut at most times. While this is happening her right eye is always open?

Another thing is that her left wing seems to be a lot higher than his right?

She also seems to be not really scared of anything anymore?? All of these things happened all at once...

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi there. Can you post a picture of your budgie from both sides and from the front? Is it possible that your budgie had a stroke? (it sounds like you are describing generalized weakness in one area)

It isn't uncommon for budgies to close one eye while resting if they feel uncomfortable in an environment - it helps them to still see, but they only have to exert one eye. If it's constant, that's a different story.

First, I would clean the eye with saline solution and a chamomile infusion (steep chamomile in boiling water, leave it to cool with a plate over the top of the glass, and then dip some gauze or kitchen paper in the mixture and hold it up to your budgie's eye). You can use the chamomile every 8 hours as it helps reduce inflammation.

If that's not the cause, I would say that a vet visit is necessary.

Also look at the other symptoms of your budgie, particularly for symptoms indicating respiratory infection (breathing heavily, tail bobbing, puffed up, sneezing a lot or producing wet sneezes). Sometimes budgies express respiratory infections through their eyes.

Best of luck and let us know how you get on!

Thanks for that response.

It seems that she is perfectly normal now... When I got home from school, she seemed to be in her normal state. (dancing, talking ect.)

Maybe it was a one time thing?? her eyes both seem to be open and her wings are at the same height now...

thanks again for that descriptive reply.
