Hi there.

I have an older famale budgie which is not handled/tame. The last few weeks has had had droppings collecting around her vent, but has seemed fine otherwise. I've been catching her every day or two by throwing a cloth over her and cleaning her vent and removing the droppings.

It was suggested that I add apple cider vinegar to her water which I did. I've not taken her to the vet as our local vets are the farming type.

Today she has been sitting on the bottom of her cage and I fear she is at the end of her days.

Any suggestions for anything I can do for her?

Cheers

Hello Rachel, When my birds get diarhoea, what appears as droppings around their vent, I use a sulfa product called Rudducks Sulfa Aid, a couple of drops direct to their beak twice a day and they often get better, have had some good results from the product. Its made to treat coccidiosis and enteritis.

 

There are other sulfa type medications for birds out there which are also effective against coccidiosis and enteritis. So check your local pet store or your vet for some it could help.

The following link shows the Sulfa Aid that I use , it can be purchased online also.
