I have a budgie about 8 yrs. old. Lately she has been squeaking while she flies and sometimes when she's just sitting but at night,periodically, I hear these really loud raspy squeaks coming from her.
She has a growth under her tail near her vent that has been looked at by a vet. He said it would be more dangerous to remove it. I thought maybe the weight of it was stressing her. My husband thinks she has asthma. But most of the day she is quiet.
Altho she just got thru a bout with moulting (she always feels bad when she moults) she is back to her active chipper self now but still with the squeaking. When I took her to the vet about the growth I mentioned the squeaking and he didn't say anything. He is not specifically an avian vet but does seem to know a lot about birds. Should I take her somewhere else or just wait for this to pass?
