help my budgie to fight his severe health problems
Your Budgie's HealthLearn about avian health and vet care. This forum does not substitute for veterinary expertise. Thread Description:I think my bird has several issues concerning severe health can anyone help me!!!!!!
thanks guys for your help
we are going to give him a few medications but they are not prescribed also what seeds is it the millets that I should try growing.
thank you so much
Any of their birdseed can be sprouted. It is also a sign that the seeds are fresh if they sprout. Old seed won't sprout.
It is worth a try.
Have you tried feeding them carrots, spinach or kale for a possible Vitamin A deficiency? Or maybe you have some palm oil?
I have had some experience with sick birds, the best thing to do is to keep them warm, i have a small hosp cage that i put mine into so that they can be monitored better. I than cover on half with a blanket/towel and use a small infrared heater on that side and leave the other end cooler.
Now some may disagree but if any of mine stopped eating I made a very runny porridge with honey and a vitamin mix and syringe fed - baytril is an antibiotic which can sometimes be prescribed by the vet (maybe ask about this???). I found this to be quite successful even in non trained birds. (just got bitten a lot)
maybe try treat for bumble foot/scaly mites and see if this makes any difference to the beak. If you are having respiratory issues, is the bird struggling to breath or just sneezing ?? a nebulizer or humidifier is good to loosen any mucus and bits in the tract and may be worth a go.
Hope some of this helps xx :/
(Please correct me if i am wrong)
So did u use aloe Vera jelly and activator from forever living products???????
Sorry I hv been missing out ur thread I didnt surf it too often.
Yes. I use this combination for bumble foot. I have been using for many years for my birds on minor wound or sore. U can see effect approximately half hr for foot sore. He stood on both leg soon after e application. It was to sore for him n he had to curl up the sore foot.

Many thanks to SPBudgie(Ollie) for the wonderful siggy!
"I brought home four budgies in January. In the course of learning about them and caring for them, I have identified a medicinal mixture that I found useful for two of my bird who had stained vent and above-cere feathers. One more had tail bobbing and rapid breathing even when no one was close to the cage. I know there is no substitute for an Avian Vet, but I do not have access to one in Mumbai, India. So here is the remedy I came up with. The proportions were ad hoc and I do not know long term effects of this. Please use at own risk.
100 gm peeled turmeric bulbs (has anti-biotic properties, preservative in the mixture)
100 gm cinnamon sticks (has anti-biotic properties, an 'upper' for budgies)
I ground all of these together in a grinder after adding water. There was a thick paste that I left to dry in the sun. The paste became a hard cake-like thing that I ground again into powder. I have around 150 gm powder of this mixture. This cost me INR 50, which less than 1 USD. I plan to add marigold flowers to this mix as my bird love to eat the petals and, probably, it has anti-yeast properties.
I put this powder in their soft food and water. I mix ACV in water with the powder so that bacteria formation in the solution gets delayed.
I've got good results for all the birds till now. One of them had a bad moult when it came to us–I could see the skin on its head. It also had rapid breathing and tail bobbing issues. This one is the fittest now it seems. Another one, with stained cere feathers and vent feathers, has just recovered, I think, because the feather condition is getting better. I give them spirulina and aloe juice in moderation, so the recovery process could be assisted by these two as well."
