Budgie with lame foot
I have an older (i.e. 8-9 yr old) budgie who has suddenly stopped standing on her one foot. I can see no visible signs of injury. She has a history of tumors, and has had a large one on her wing for years with no problems.... Otherwise, she seems happy - is moving around the cage, eating, drinking, playing, and singing.
As I know she is nearing the end of her life, I don't want to treat the foot so much as make her as comfortable as possible - a full vet exam would probably stress her out at this point and kill her anyhow... Do you believe she is in pain? Which is more humane - keep her alive and love her lots, or take her in and have her put to sleep.... She had a rough life before coming to me, and I want to make the rest of it as easy as possible...
