Hi, I took my budgie to avian vet as he had yellow urine around his poop and was loosing weight. He was diagnosed with liver disease.

I was told to change his seed diet to pelleted (Harrison`s Adult Lifetime Fine) and feed him lot of veggies. He also got Baytril oral for a week.

If any of you have a budgie with liver disease could you tell me what diet you use and if there is anything I should know more about or watch out for.

I am also currently waiting for pelleted food so tips on changing food would be appreciated.

Also does any of you have a book called 'Natural Feeding System & Parrot Cookbook Set' from bird trick? Is it good for budgies?

Thank you :green budgie:

So here is the update.

He is doing so much better. He is already gaining his weight back. He gained a gram and a half which doesn't seem a lot but it feels like it is as he was losing so much weight (he weighted 29 grams on Friday while my other budgie weights 43 grams). He has much more energy and eat more as well. There's also not that much liquid around his poop.

He gets broccoli and carrots everyday along with different veggies and fruits (spinach, corn, apples, cucumber, celery, green peas, peppers). I also added pellets to his seeds.

I gave him dandelion leaves as my vet suggested ( I forgot to mention it before)

My vet also suggested to give him watercress which I will once I find it in the shop :lol:

Also what do you mean dandelion roots? Do you mean roots as roots or something I should buy?

I will definitely look for milk thistle and add to his water once he finish with Baytril.

Thank you for the suggestions and replies. :yellow plet: [/FONT]
