Hello fellow budgie worshippers, some of you might of noticed I have not been around the forum as much these last few days. I had an emergency situation with my one and only special baby boy Budget.
Older members know how special and dear Budget is to my husband and I.
He is what is called a carrier budgie, he has Megabacteria present in his system at a higher rate than normal at all times.
Last week I noticed he was very tired and not his usual self, he went down hill to the point of simply snuggled up on my neck and then vomited he most I have ever seen a budgie produce. Of course it had to be weekend,
Monday morning he was admitted to the Vet hospital, very sick.
He has been there till today.
I can happily share he is now home once more he is still not 100% but improving by the hour.
It turns out his digestive tract had stopped working, he was very sick and my amazing avian vet pulled him through once more.
SO we are back home and all feeling much better.
How precious these sweet little birds are to us is beyond words treasure and make many memories each and every day, hope every birdie's day is a wonderful one and your Budgies are singing and playing happily.

Cathy, I am so glad to hear that dear little Budget is ok. I just love hearing his stories, and can't wait until he is back to 100%! Sorry to hear though that he relapsed. And it ALWAYS has to be the weekend when our darling babies fall ill. It seems that every time we have a problem it is Friday night, after all our vets' offices have closed for the night, and the A. vet won't be back in until Monday morning.

Anyway, thank God Budget is back on the road to recovery! Sending healing thoughts and prayers your way.

-Kristen

So glad that Budget is at home and feeling a bit better.
Thankyou so much for all of the kind words, it was so stressful I didn't want to post a thread when it happened. I have an amazing Avian vet who was dutifully rewarded with a box of chocolates and bottle of our local area wine. As well as paying the bill of course , I might add. Indeed Budget raced to his brothers and told him of the ordeal they were very attentive and flew out to him immediately and gave him some well deserved comfort.

Hi Cathy
I'm so happy that Budget has recovered, it certainly sounds like your vet is truly amazing, but Cathy credit has to come your way aswell, you're the perfect budgie Mum, you love and care for your birds unconditionally and Budget knows it, he didn't want to lose you so he fought just like you and the vet did, well done to you, the vet and of course Budget.
Pete :)
