Budgies breathing
by: Alex

My budgies have always had slight tail bobs and exams from Avian Vets have always passed with no problems.

You want to worry if the tail bob is obvious / quite a lot.

That "tss" sound you are hearing is just the bird sneezing.

One of my budgies would have a sneezing fit most mornings and then the occassinal sneeze during the day.

I am sure the bird is fine.

Thansk for caring and taking the time to make sure that your bird is O.K.

It is advised to take your bird for an annual check up by an AVIAN VET once a year.

Possible respiratory infection
by: Tracie

There is just no way of knowing what is wrong or how serious this is without a in person visit with an avian vet, sorry. Different infections respond to different medications and giving the wrong one will just allow the bird to get sicker and add more complications instead of getting well.

Please use this Find an Avian Vet link to find an avian vet for your bird so it can be examined to determine what is wrong and what the potential treatment might be.
