I am so worried about my budgie. I have to take him back to the vets tomorrow, they are not avian vets due to personal reasons. But I always make sure the birds are looked after, warm, food water etc they have a better life than me I think
But my budgie is suffering and I don't know what to do, the vets want to put him under general anesthesia to perform more tests and keep him in the hospital but I don't know if he will survive it. I haven't been reading good stories about GA and budgies. What are your thoughts on that?
I took him yesterday because he has this squeaking/ scratching when he is breathing for the last 3/4 days, he can't chirp either. They prescribed him baytril spelling? I gave him some last night and this morning in his water and this afternoon I found him trying to be sick, shaking his head and stretching his neck etc, Except he can't bring anything up. I am not convinced he has an infection, I believe it is more a blockage or heaven forbid, a tumor. I called the vet and told them and they told me to stop giving him baytril and bring him in tomorrow morning at 10am. Which I will.
I just feel like I am prolonging his pain and I don't know what to do. I like the vets they are nice and everything and considering I can only pay in donations they are great, they do have a small animal hospital there and I assume that is where Winston will be treated, they will be used to treating small animals which is good I guess.
I don't really know what I am trying to ask here I just need to talk. And advise on what to do with him, what should I do? What tests do I ask for? Things like that, I want whats best for him, I know I might have to face the fact that he will probably die but I don't want him to, they have been like life support for me over the last year or so, I wish could do more for him, and I get the horrible feeling that I am going to loose Winston
