I called the vet and they said they can't really say much unless they see her, but the expense is a bit high for a check up, is there anything else I could do?

You need to get your budgie into the Avian Vet as soon as possible. Part of owning a pet is taking the responsibility to ensure it receives the necessary medical care whenever it is ill or injured.

https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...e-expense.html

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

Just came back from the vet, she might have a tumour under her leg and he gave me some antibiotics for her. She doesn't want to eat yet but I hope she is better soon. If your tumour worsens and she no longer can stand on her perch, I might just put her down because it is not a good quality of life. I feel like I let her down She only 30g

It's good that you've taken her to the vet and now know the cause of her problems.

I would recommend adding Knotgrass to her diet immediately in conjunction with the treatment prescribed by the vet.

You can try health food stores in your area but it would probably be easiest for you to simply order it on-line.

You're welcome.

I haven't ordered from that supplier as I am in the US rather than Canada.

The specific one I ordered is linked below:

I'm sorry to hear of your little one's diagnosis!

You've been given great advice by FaeryBee, I hope that your girl recovers from this tumour!
