Hey

I've recently found out my budgie is probably suffering from bumblefoot. Her foot seems to have swollen (if that's the right term) and I've now seen that there is redness at the bottom of her foot.
From all the research I did, I believe shes still in the beginning stages of fully developing bumblefoot.
She stands on her good foot and I believe she tries to give her affected foot some rest.
I have no avian vets nearby and am not capable of taking her to the vet ( I'm 16 )


Please, if there is any kind of home remedies you could share to help my little girl out, please tell me.

Thank you so much for the article! I'm looking into getting perches of different diameters for my budgies.
But if there's anything you could share that helps heal the sore rather than prevent it, that would be extremely helpful.

This is what my budgies foot looks like right now.
Please, if anyone could help me from her sore feet worsening, do help me out.

Thank you !

I would pad the perches so they are soft. You can get some moleskin which is used in shoes it is like a soft piece of flannel that has an adhesive on the back, you should be able to get it at a pharmacy.
