Sorry for the kind of gross pictures, but I'm wondering what could have caused this. My bird Alfie (I found out she's a girl but I still call her Alfie!) seemed perfectly fine to me this morning, but when I took her out of her cage to hang with me on her playpen I noticed she pooped twice in the span of about 5 minutes and one of her droppings was very wet and had a yellowish tint to the liquid. I'm monitoring her and she seems fine otherwise acting normal (except a little more vocal than normal) but I was just wondering if anyone knows what may cause this and if I should be concerned this is the beginning of a bigger issue.
The pictures are of the two poops and then a pic of her from yesterday.
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.
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.
