I am new to the site.
Freddie the baby budgie (5 months old) came to live with me from a local pet shop in march.
He is a lovely boy and really come out of his shell.
I am hand taming him but am doing so every day with the softly softly approach and he is taking to it well and nearly happy to stay on my finger
He hasn't been out of the cage yet as I don't want to do so until he is tamed.
Freddie suddenly appeared to have a sticky eye a week ago when waking.
I got him some soothing animal eye drops from the pet shop on Sunday, spoke to the vet on the phone on Monday, she said keep giving him the drops if no better in next couple of days bring him in.
It seems to have turned from what seemed conjunctivitis to a eye infection.
I took Freddie to the vet today after his eye took much longer to open this morning and seemed very swollen.
It looked painful and he has been rubbing and scratching it.
A short trip, loss of tail feathers and one tired, red eyedrop stained baby budgie we are back home.
My vet has prescribed Isathal eye drops twice a day for a week.
Does anyone have any experience with these drops?
