My budgie Nike is not doing well. She had seizure like symptoms...along with wheezing & itchiness. I took her to vet & he prescribed some antibiotics and vitamins.

However, Nike has been acting dull today. She didn't eat anything today & she didn't chirp nor did she play. I don't know what to do at this point- the vet has done his bit.

I am praying that she heals soon & I want you all to pray for her. I lost twix this year, I cannot lose Nike. Pls pray

Nike is yellow in color.

I will keep Nike and you in my prayers. Could she just be moulting? It looks like I see pinnies on her head. Some of my budgies and especially my linnie get very quiet and lose their appetite when they moult. Praying that's all it is. Both of your budgies are beautiful!

I'm sorry your budgie Nike hasn't been feeling well.
Have you tried feeding her some spray millet? Usually sick and convalescent budgies will easily eat it. You can also try some egg food, this soft food is very nutritious and can also be helpful and give your Nike a much needed energy boost.
If she is not accepting any food, you may need to try hand feeding her some formula for baby birds, you can do so via syringe or spoon. If all fails then you will have to go back to the avian vet's for Nike to be crop fed.

I'm sending you and your beautiful budgie girl my best wishes for a steady and full recovery.
Hopefully soon your Nike will begin to respond positively to the medication.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and Nike at this very difficult time.
The flock of 14 and I are all rooting for your girl to be back to full health.

Dsavino- She is molting. However, the seizure was abnormal. It was as though she was losing balance. It lasted for few seconds, every day (from the past 1 week). Like she'd keep flapping her wings, or vibrate in an odd manner.. As though excessively heated up. I pray it's just molt but symptoms seem odd. She had a problem of vomiting or throwing up seeds when she was young..But with the right diet that had stopped.

Aluz- She isn't eating at all since 1 day (today). Otherwise she ate, even though her appetite was low. Today she only drank vitamin water..and had very less seeds. I am actually apprehensive of feeding her via syringe. She is scared of my hands. And gets very panicky if I touch her. I was worried that will worsen her condition if she's stressed out. I can try millets. Also, it is wiser to force feed budgies or wait till their appetite is back?

Thank you all for your prayers and wishes. Nike really needs it. She is like my child, I am very attached to her.

For now you can try offering spray millet and see if she is able to crack open the seed and eat it. Pay close attention to her beak functions when she is eating and see if they are normal. It would also be a good idea to check her general body mobility.
I have recently had a pet bird to suffer a stroke and his beak was partially paralysed and with proper medication and physical therapy he managed to pull through.
If your Nike is really having multiple seizures, she needs to be seen again by the vet right away and have the proper medication to address this issue. General antibiotics will not cure this. And with each seizure your Nike runs the risk of getting weaker.

I'm sorry for your bird's condition, Shruti. Budgies will usually flap wings very fast multiple times a day to get some exercise on a perch. But as you say she's vibrating and having seizures, that's not normal. You mentioned about itchiness....did your vet check for mites?
As aluz has suggested, if her condition worsens even a bit, get her checked immediately by an avian vet.
Hope Nike makes a speedy recovery.

I can't add anything to the excellent advice above, but Nike is named after the Greek goddess of Victory and I hope certainly that she achieves that when fighting her illness.

I will definitely keep her in my thoughts today and I'm hoping she pulls through

Keep us posted!
