Default It looks like serious illness!

Hi, everyone. I have 3 budgies, 2 male and 1 female. Two males are white and green and the female is yellow. The green male isn't much active, although he was active some days ago. I had 3 budgies, 2 male and 1 female two days ago. The female one died, and I bought another yellow to replace it. The old female was always sleeping and eating a lot. The new female is sleeping a lot now. The other birds were very silent when she died. The green one was not very active since then. Now he's still not active. The white male is singing a lot. I wonder if the green male and the female are sick? The male is sneezing a lot too, and all of them are panting. I don't want to lose the budgies. What do I have to do? Take them to the vet or just wait? I'm really worried.


Thank you
Matilda

When you introduced the new female, did you follow quarantine? If not, you just exposed your entire flock if she was carrying an infectious disease.

After your female budgie unexpectedly died, I would definitely bring all of your budgies to the vet to be seen- she may have had an infectious disease that led to her death.

Hi welcome . Katherine is right. Quarantine is absolutely necessary to reduce chances of introducing illness straight into your flock.

The best advice we can give is to take your birds to a qualified avian vet. That will help alleviate your worry, and the vet can better test, diagnose, and treat the problem if any.

Will you please keep us posted on this? Let us know what the vet says. If you need help finding a bird qualified (avian) vet in your area, let us know. Wishing you the best.

Thank you for your replies! No, I didn't quarantine them. Of course I'll keep you posted. I think there are vets around me, which I think they're for all animals. I couldn't find an avian vet though.

I had a medicine which the shop-keeper had gave me when I had asked about diseases. I added it to their water. Another thing: the sneezing and panting had stopped and is frequent naps okay? One more thing: the green male had been friends with the yellow female before she died. Couldn't the symptoms of not active and a little puffy the answer be that he was only in grief?

Thank you
Matilda

Where are you located? It's best to use an Avian vet if at all possible. Next would be a vet that specializes in "exotic" animals.

What is it that you are adding to the water?

Part of the issue with the green male could be grief, but I would not count on it.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

While it is very challenging for people who live in countries with no Avian Vets, there are steps you can take to help ensure your budgies' health.

With the right motivation, you can work with a regular or veterinarian to get the proper care for your budgie(s).

You will want to do as much research as you can and learn as much about budgies and the best practices for their care so you can provide your little ones with the best possible life.

We have a member in India who has done this and has developed a great relationship with a regular vet.
With the member's research and the vet's collaboration, they have found ways of providing care for her budgie that she would have not been able to manage otherwise.

When you develop a good relationship with a regular veterinarian, that individual can collaborate via telephone or Skype with Avian Veterinarians in other countries if necessary to get assistance in appropriate diagnosing and prescribing treatment for your Avian companions.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

Please do not attempt to self medicate your birds. Shop owners are not qualified to prescribe medicine and often you can end up doing more harm than good.

Thank you for your replies! I'm located in Malaysia. I don't know the name of the medicine that I'm adding, but they seem much better than yesterday.

While I'm glad to hear your bird is doing better, self-medicating birds is extremely risky and is not condoned by this forum.

Please refer to my previous post and attempt to find a vet you can work with in the future.

Best wishes!
