Hello everyone,
I have a budgie for six months. When he came to me first, he could fly very well around the house but one day i realized that his left wing is a little lower and he can't fly. I went to vet and he told me his wing was hurt and he'll get well in 2 or 3 weeks. But it's 40 days now and he still can't fly and the wing is still the same. Does anybody know how to treat this? It's very hard for him not to fly and he looks very sad. Thank you for your helping in advance.

Hi, Welcome to Talk Budgies!

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being

Locating an Avian Veterinarian

Your little boy is very handsome. What is his name?
It's too bad you didn't have a better veterinarian -- the wing may have healed improperly which is preventing your boy from flying.
I would suggest you use the link above to try to locate a veterinarian in your area that has experience in dealing with small birds to get a second opinion. Perhaps with anti-inflammatories, the problems with the wing might resolve themselves. There is no way for us to know -- you need a professional diagnosis. Also included in the above link is information regarding contacting on-line Avian Veterinarians who may be able to help you.

Please let us know how things progress with your little one.

I recommend you remove the wooden dowel perches in the cage and replace them with natural wooden perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.
