Knowing I haven't posted for a while I decided to just write this off. I am very upset right now.
6th of July my female budgy Aya was not feeling too great. She had sticky poo for a while and I cleaned her once a week. Towards the end it often became more. I went to the vet and without getting any research of her poop he gave her medication. On Sunday she was getting worse and she had to be cleaned several times a day. She got new medication and breeder food. On the monday of 9th of July she passed away in my hands. I came upstairs and she was on the bottom of the cage and making small squeeky sounds. 10 minutes prior to the she was "fine". I took her in my hand and she was trying to get out. I thought it was a good sign, but when I put her back in the cage she was having small spasms. I quickly grabbed her and put her back in my hand. Where she had a big spasm, then another one and she passed away in my hand.
Today Chaplin passed away in my hand. He was pretty close with Aya and I had him checked last week with his poop. He got the same medication. When I noticed he wasn't getting better I went to a bird specialist who checked him thorough-fully. He had a fungus/ parasite in his crop and I got Flagyl for him. Yesterday it seemed he was finally getting better. He was chirping alot, really eager to go outside of the cage, which I let him. This morning he was quiet and I saw him puke 2 times. Well can happen due to the medications, but I wanted to call the vet if I noticed him still puking 30 - 60 minutes later. In the meantime I thought maybe it was a good idea to clean his beak as it was all sticky from the medication I had to give him. The moment I pick him up, blood is coming from his beak. I got freaked out and yelled downstairs that they had to call the vet immediately. My brother called the vet. Apparently it was a crop bleeding caused by the parasites, they caused too much damage. I kept him in my hands and he was pretty calm. Mum started cleaning his beak in the meantime as he was having alot of blood there. The vet said on the phone we could maybe visit, but Chaplin passed away about 10 minutes after his bleeding started.
I got 5 budgies left now. Took a new budgy when Aya died because Shanji was lonely and getting teased. This upcoming week I will test all my birds to make sure they are clean or can get the medication they need. I lost 2 brids in the same month and I'm devastated. I was almost puking when Chaplin was dying in my hand because I was so upset. I'm crying when I'm writing this. I give my birds everything they need, the right food, extra stuff for their bones, feathers and all. I don't give them crap candy because I know they can get sick. Yesterday was looking so well and today he just died in my hands. I'm so sad at the minute I can't describe it. Chaplin was one of my tame budgies and allowed me to pet his neck, he would throw it to the side so I could pet him better, he loved it. Now I won't be petting him anymore
. They're burried together so they can cuddle in budgy heaven.
