Default Sneezing

Hello all,

My Charlie boy has been sneezing a lot lately, for the last week, and just now I saw him bring up a couple of whole seeds while he was sneezing.

Everything else seems fine otherwise, he's eatting, drinking, playing, chirpping and preening. His sleeping is fine too.

Any advice on what this could be or how to help would be great.

Thank you,
Samantha

Hi there,

Are his sneezes wet (if you are standing in front of him, do you feel the sneeze)? Can you see anything on his cere or near his nostrils? Is he rubbing his head a lot on his perches, as if "wiping his nose?" Has anything changed in his environment recently? Is he at all puffed up?

What's his diet like? Does he get probiotics? Are you going through a weather change? Changes in weather (particularly temperature) can lower a budgie's natural defenses - just like us.

Also, does he have a tail bob or does he look puffed up?

He may have brought up seeds just from the force of the sneezes if he had just eaten. Are you sure he's not vomiting (head shaking, seeds and liquid caught in his head or cage bars) or regurgitating (bobbing of head)?

These questions can help us help out a bit more.

Good luck! Charlie is much too cute to be a sneeze machine.

His sneezes are wet but there's nothing on his cere. He hasn't been rubbing his head on his perches. He's not at all puffed up. And he hasnt been bobbing his head or tail. Nothing in his environment has changed.
I give him some kale everday and he has his usual seed but he doesnt get probiotics. The weather will be getting cooler as it moves into autumn and winter. I make sure he's not in drafts etc
When he sneezes he opens his beak sometimes and thats when the seeds came out. But he doesnt shake his head and it's only whole seeds that come out.

Could he be allergic to dust?

If it were me in your situation I would be going to the vet. It is always easier to find he is ok and not actually carrying any problem especially now the weather is starting to change here in Aus.
