Do you happen to know how your budgie got the inflammation on the eye?
Was it due to an injury or did it happen unexpectedly?
Budgies can get serious infections on the eye as a direct result of other underlying illnesses and given the fact there is infection and pus near the eye area, your budgie really needs urgent medical attention asap.
It really is best to book an appointment at a specialized avian vet so that your budgie is properly diagnosed and treated.
I'm wishing your budgie a steady and full recovery.
Hello and :welcome: to Talk Budgies!
I agree completely with Aluz--your budgie should be checked out by an avian vet to properly be diagnosed. However, it would also be helpful to see a picture of the affected area, if you have one.
I'm wishing your budgie a full and speedy recovery--keep us posted!
Hope to see you around the forums and if you ever have any other questions, please do ask.
Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
When you rely on unskilled individuals, you delay effective treatment. This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recover than it would have if you
seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.
To familiarize yourself with the forums, please take the time to read through all of the How To Guides, the FAQs and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
You'll find most of your basic questions are answered after you've read through all of them.
I'm looking forward to hearing all about your budgie and hopefully seeing some pictures hoto: soon!!
I do see something that looks like a foreign "flap" or fold inside of her eye, covering a good portion of the bottom part of the eye.
This is something I have never come across with any of my pet birds, but I would be inclined to say she got this as a result from an injury.
And given the fact the eye is such a sensitive area, it really is best to have your budgie seen by a professional avian vet.
