Sammy has had episodes of vomiting just a bit (he also started regurgitating this week for me and for his reflection... em, thanks
) over the past 2 nights. His droppings also range from watery and dark green to normal, but small in size. His behavior is almost normal, with only a few minutes of getting sleepy and then acting normal again.
I took Sammy in to our avian vet last night for a check-up. His weight is normal (41g!
) and his overall condition is good. A fecal swab showed that he had a few megabacteria, but nothing more than a normal healthy budgie might have. Also he had an overgrowth of bacteria and a few yeast clusters, but nothing in his crop and no storing of gas (no fermentation).
I suspect that his move to his new cage might have stressed him a bit, and when Sammy gets stressed and his immune system gets low (despite probiotics), he can often get a bacterial or megabacteria infection. I think that we caught him at what might have become a megabacteria infection.
We've got him on Enzo (antibiotic) twice a day, Flucanazol (for the megas) once a day, and a liver protector.
Please cross your fingers that Sammy gets back to normal quickly.
I'm really happy that we noticed his very few symptoms quickly and that he hasn't become puffed up and really ill looking!
