About 2 months ago a big earthquake happend where I lived. M:7.0
it was at daytime. My budgies so scared naturally. But there was no problem at that day. But after main shock there were several aftershocks. One of them was at night time, when my boys were sleeping. I run to them immedialtly open the lights but until I went them I think he felt from his swings and hit his right leg some of his toys or perches I dont know. After that he began to limping. I took him to the vet. The vet wants to see xrays and said there is no broken bones but seems little bit injury on his femur. and adviced me to wait 15 days. By the time he got lost 2 gr of his weigths, but still playfull chirping and there is no signs of any other illness exept limping. We waited 15 days then I took him to vet again for checkup. But he was still limping. the vet took xrays again and femur got began to heal but not completely. By the way I asked him to test his droppings because I was scared about stress could cause any other illness. according to test
staphylococcus bacteria was found his droppings. He gave us antibiotic mix for his treatment for 5 days.
I tried to give him med. orally first 2 days but my boy is really stubborn and couldnt open his mounth. I'm not sure but I might get some medication on his cere or nose. after that I heard some wheezy sounds when he flies too much. not every time he breaths, just after fly around too much and gets tired. just during 1 or 2 seconds. and I'm noticing that he might bobing his tails. Butoncer I'm not sure. His tail not bobbing every time. just when he relaxing and when he sleeps on his swings. I can not get his video because he never sit still when he sees phone. But I found a video from another budgie tail bobbing. My boys tail look like his on video. by the way wheezy sounds stoped. But tail bobbing concerns me. might I cause that or should I be worried. I'm not sure. I dont want to took him to vet because every time we go to vet they got scared so much and being stressfull. and I dont want them to be stresful for no reason. So my question is should I worried for him like this tail bobbing, is it normal. (his normal mood is ok eating playing all normal)
By the way second question is 1 month has passed from his leg injured but he still get his right foot to belly sometimes,not limping just take his foot to belly. Is that normal still doing that after so many times. is femur healing takes to much time?
