I'm new at this forum. I have two questions and hope you can help me.
1. My budgie (buddy) is male 3.5 years old. 2 days ago he gave 2 grams and yesterday I found some undigested seed in his poop. So I tested his stool today at avian vet and we found out there is AGY. His mood is ok eating playing normally and actually pretty happy bird. the vet said there is not much AGY fungus in his stool kind of beginning stage.
The vet said there is no enough dosage of Ampho B on their stock. So adviced me to get sodium benzoate. I looked forward on amazon but I'm not sure which one is right product.
They both sodium benzoate but their cemical formulas are different. So I'm confused. Is the right product is E221 food preservative? and How much should I use it?
Second question is.
this morning I found little left part of my boy's cere is little bit lighter even white than before but not big part. I read so many articles that cere color changes is not good.but in every articals about tumors said cere turning blue to brown not white. So I'm little bit concern about it also he tucked his left leg his belly more than before. but no limping or else changes.I dont want him to be stress with xrays for no reasons so first I want to ask to you. turning white or light blue could be sympthom of tumor. I asked that vet also but she has no idea about turning white. (I added his pic )

With regard to your budgie's cere, it looks just fine - nothing to be concerned about.
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.
When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.
But other thing is still concerns me. Buddy thucks his feet to belly not limping or else just thucks more than before and his white part on his cere I think little bit changed. Do you think should I take xrays ? ( I added new pic I took this photo last night before giving his meds and he was looking unhappy tho.)
Is his cere looking brown or am I too worried?
