It turns out that she had a progressed case of liver disease, in addition to a fatty mass that was growing and the vet told me the prognosis was very poor. I made the choice to have her put to sleep while she is still somewhat strong, as I could not get myself to picture her on the bottom of the cage taking her last few breaths and I really did not want her to keep living the way she has been for the past two days. I gave her a few scritches while she was wrapped in the towel and one last kiss before they finally took her. I couldn't help but cry in front of the vet, vet technicians and my family
She is no longer suffering, which is what is keeping me sane.
Came home: March 10th 2008
Left to rainbow bridge: November 15th 2012 (She was five years old)
So sorry for your lost i know how heartbreaking it is i lost two my sweetest budgies should say babies my self. you little one was beautiful. Pray and hope all those little ones are flying free in heaven together ;;
I'm so sorry for your loss. I cant imagine how much pain it was for you to make that decision at the vets office with such short notice. I dont know if I'd be able to handle that kind of decision at all and Id definitely be in tears as you were. You did what was best for her. Mika is your angel. She is now at peace and no longer in pain. Fly high and free beautiful girl.
Sorry to read about Mika. I put my mom's budgie Ping, who lived with me his last two years, to sleep a couple of years ago. Euthanisia is definitely the way to go if you can. I held Ping until I was ready, my vet, gave him the shot, then i held him until he passed. i cried like a baby the entire time. Pong, who i lost this year, unfortunately died, what i'm afraid was a painful death. i wish i would have been able to get him to the vet to euthanize him

Zeena I am so sorry. I know how you feel. I did the very same thing as you when my Nicky was sick. It's the hardest thing in the world to do. That last goodbye was heartbreaking and right now tears come.
It was for the best Zeena. Little Mika will no longer be in pain.
Don't be surprised if you just happen to hear a little chirp in your ear. That's Mika letting you know she's okay.
Poor little Mika. I'm so sorry Zeena. Mika will never forget you as she loved you and you loved her. Zeena Mika will never forget you she will be in your heart forever. My Budgie Buster who I lost is now playing with Mika.
