Budgie having seizures
Please can you help? We have an old budgie, he was my partners before we met and he is about 15 years old! He has always flown freely around the house and lived a healthy life. About 9 months ago he appeared to have hurt his wing, it was hanging low, and he was having trouble flying. We took him to the vet and the vet said the wing wasn't broken, but may be bruised. The budgie never regained his ability to fly around the room, just short distances from perch to perch (more a jump).
He has now started having seizures, and goes round and round on the cage floor screaching. It happened maybe once a month, then fortnightly and now most weeks. It breaks my heart, but all the vet offers it to put him down. When the seizure is over (it lasts 2 - 5 mins)he pants for a little while, then manages to climb back up to his swing, and after a short while starts swinging, eating and singing again.
I just don't know what to do - please can you help?
