Severe Respiratory Problems

Recommended Posts

We have had our budgie for 6months, she was never well when we brought her home.

 

We took her to an avian vet immediately and was diagnosed with MegaBac, we treated her for over 3months and now tests negative to it, but she still isnt well.

 

She had a bobbing tale when we first had her, and was treated with Baytril (anti-biotic), without improvement but the Vet said that was normal...

 

Several months later, she is deteriorating, the tail bobbing is worse. The vet is all out of ideas, she tested negative form clamydia twice, her white blood cell count is elevated and liver proteins are slightly elevated. She has had full blood work done on two occasions.

 

As a last resort she was put on Spironox (anti-fungal) and Baytril again, she appears to be getting worse.

 

She lost her appetite and we are crop feeding her hand rearing formula.

 

We are desperate, we have seen 2 highly recommended avian vets in melbourne without any progress.

 

Can anyone suggest anything at all that may help us?

 

Thanks

I sounds like you have really gone the extra mile for this one. I'm sorry for you that it doesn't seem to be working. I agree with Macka.

 

 

 

There are some birds that are just not as fit as others, and most of those don't ever make it out of the nest box. Others do, but they live shorty and sickly lives.

 

 

If the vets have tried everything, that's probably the best you can do.
