    Hi group, one of my adopted budgies has never had great health. His most recent problem is a respiratory infection. In all my decades of budgiekeeping, this is a new one! We went to our usual avian vet who prescribed Baytril and Cilofexor (eye drops that can be used as nose drops). That was...

    Hey fellow bird lovers. So recently I had a parakeet pass away and now it seems another one isn’t doing to well either. His eye looks infected, it’s a brownish color around it, he’s sleeping so much during the day, isn’t playing with the others, and sitting at the bottom of the cage. I’m not...
  4. Diseases and Illnesses
    Hi. I've just bought a new budgie. It was bought from a pet store as there are no breeders in my area. I'm very worried, as it is displaying signs of an infection.

He hasn't been eating and he's been sitting in the nest box with baby for comfort. I thought maybe it was exhaustion from raising a chick, but now I...

    Any tips for feeding a sick bird or home remedy for bumblefoot pain? Hello. My 10 year old parakeet has bumblefoot infections in both feet again (he's crippled in one foot so he keeps building up pressure sores no matter what we do). The last couple years, all the usual methods at keeping...

    Hi there, I have a sick budgie who has been diagnosed with crop infection. The vet has prescribed him nystatin and mycobacil (sorry about spelling). The vet has also asked me to clean his vent area as he has poop all stuck around there as well as diarrhoea. I have done all that. Due to his...
  11. Diseases and Illnesses
    So I really don't know where to start. I got my beautiful baby budgie Yama about a month ago from a breeder that was recommended by a friend.
