Budgie with diarrhoea and other symptoms

by Vivien
(Asheville, NC)

My 2yr old female budgie has been "slightly" unwell for months but nothing that made me go to the vet...however, she has now stopped sneezing but has a crustiness around her nostrils, she has frequent loose stools and now she has wet tail feathers and crusted stools around her tail. She still seems fine in herself though. Is it diet or illness? She won't eat fresh fruit or veg and the pet store advised me to change her diet to pellets recently...I did.

Your bird is very sick and needs to be diagnosed and treated by an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area. Find an Avian Vet All the signs you mentioned are those of chronic illness, and your bird will die without proper diagnosis and treatment by an Avian Vet. Birds do not just get over infections as they have to be diagnosed and treated before they will go away.

Your bird is very sick, and you need to move quickly to get her to an Avian Vet.
