Unhappy Sadly Budgie Passed Away

Yesterday I noticed he was acting strange, he seemed very tired and unsociable with runny poop. Today he has been much worse, he is very sleepy and can barely keep his eyes open, his feathers are puffed up, he seems very week, runny poop and he keeps trembling. However what is most concerning me is that he keeps swallowing strangely, as if he is regurgitating, yet he looks like he is in pain whilst doing so.

I've been trying to ring my local vet all afternoon and they will not pick up, they are always SUPER busy. I don't even know if they have an avian doctor there! Me and my mum don't drive so it would be hard for us to get to another vet in my city which are all very far away.

Any ideas what could be wrong, anything I could do to make my budgie feel more comfortable until I am able to get him to the vet?

I'm so sorry. Only a vet can diagnose him for you.

Keep him hydrated little drops of water on a lettuce leaf. My Kauai had stomach problems twice and water on a lettuce leaf was all she could keep down. I never found out what the problem was -- my vet thought just bad food. Keep trying to call your vet hopefully they will be able to help. Wish I could help more...

If you think your budgie looks sick, you are more than likely right. They hide illness as an instinctual thing until they are so sick that they are unable to any longer.

That said, all you can do is keep your budgie warm until you get veterinary attention. Perhaps you could catch a bus? I doubt a sick budgie will make much noise and it is basically an emergency.

Have you had their number tested? It might be out of order. You could just turn at the vet surgery.....after all, it is an emergency. If they don't have an Avian vet in the surgery, they could liaise with one on the phone.

Good luck

Your poor baby sounds quite bad If I were you I would just go ! take him make sure the carry cage is well wrapped and keep him warm better still wrap him in a cloth and hold him against your chest. I hope you get some help. he needs heat, probiotics any food if he will eat it . not greens at this stage. If you have pediolyte or something similar give him some to keep his energy. He sounds very sick. If he is in with other birds keep an eye on them as well.

The vet could give a shot of reglan to help reduce the nausea so the bird will eat. Weigh your bird so you can tell how much weight has bee lost. Weigh and record daily until well then once a week in AM before breakfast. Show to your avian vet. Electrolyte and probiotics can help. Some vitamins and weight gain formulas have probiotics. do not use with antibiotic but right after. Millet spray is good fro a sick bird. If the bird will not eat millet spray it is sick. You can soak the millet spray in the electrolyte/probiotics water to perhaps get some in the bird as it eats. Vetafarm has these items and others that are good to keep around as the core of a first aid kit. Check the First aid section Stickies here on TB and also do a search of threads for first aid as there have been so recent threads on first aid. Do not buy a ready made kit as it is cheaper to build your own. Prayers for you and your little one. Jo Ann

Thank you Jo Ann!
We ended up rushing him to our local vet as we couldn't wait any longer and he was getting in a really bad state. The vet had no idea what is wrong with my budgie as they aren't an avian vet, however he was given an antibiotic injection and some ibuprofen. He is also underweight.
Since we brought him back home he has just been sleeping and hasn't changed with his condition. We have another appointment tomorrow.
He has attempted to eat but he really needs to drink something, any idea how I can get my budgie to drink some electrolyte water?

Oh my god I just went to check on him, he has moved to the corner of the bottom of the cage and there are two patches of fresh blood underneath one of his perches, I suspect this has come from his bum. I can't stop panicking or crying, I hate the thought that he is in so much pain or suffering, I don't know what to do.
I would take him to the avian vet myself - even if it meant walking or taking the bus, but it's past closing time now and I wouldn't want to stress him out any further, I can't take this :-(

You can soak millet spray in the electrolyte/probiotics water and then offer the millet spray to the budgie. You must have an E clinic call them and ask for help or referral to avian vet even a consult call tell them you just came home from vet. keep bird in hospital cage. could the bird have ingested something foreign? Ask if cold could help stop bleeding. turn the bird over and see where the blood is coming from. It can be tricky but sometimes cold can help stop bleeding, Ask the vet. this is critical try to gauge how much blood lost. Cold slows metabolism and thus blood flow, but you really need a vet doing this.
This is an ASAP last weak issue. My prayers are with you and your Budgie.
