Default Right Sodium Benzoate product

Hello All;

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.

https://www.amazon.com/Sodium-Benzoa.../dp/B084D4YH1W

https://www.amazon.com/100-Grams-Sod...3481911&sr=8-4

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 )

Thanks..

The Sodium Benzoate you want to use is the one I've linked below. This is the one I use for my own birds:

Human Food Grade Sodium Benzoate

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.

Thanks for the answer.

I will order same product. May I ask how many gram should I use for 100ml water bottle.

Oh glad to hear that his cere looks normal. Today it's not white as much as yesterday but I'll continue to keep an eye on.

Thanks again

I'd start with a little less than 1/8 of a teaspoon of the Sodium Benzoate to one liter of water and slowly work up to 1/4 of a teaspoon.

(Read the FIRST link) in the article listed above.

Thanks FaeryBee;

I'll use sodium benzoate this way.

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?

Thanks

From what I can see in the picture I think his cere and beak are fine.

Don't worry about him tucking his feet.
Some budgies like to do that.

Thanks FaeryBee,

I'm relieved. Actually today he looks better to me also.

I think I'm one of too worried parents

You're welcome. Better to be a concerned parent than one who is indifferent!!
