Hi all ^_^

 

One of my friends that also owns budgies is pretty worried about her birds, she said that they are vomiting, fluffed up and have clogged vents, she's also seen them "coughing" before which is what my birds did when they had psittacosis, I think it could be psittacosis, but im not sure, she's treating them for worms at the moment. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could be?

Sounds like Canker or possibly Mega!

They need immediate treatment!

 

Take a sick bird to an avian vet or experienced local breeder and get them to do a poo smear test for mega and a crop smear for canker, then treat accordingly.

this is very very urgent if she wants some to live.

 

ps take away the worm treatment, their sick bodies dont need posion running though them too right now.

Never give a sick bird worming meds

I totally agree with Liv.

Clogged vents needs cleaning and the feathers around the vent removing, or they cannot poop.All birds need to be in hospital cages with warm lamps. Action needed is fast...worming is a wrong move.If vet diagnosis isnt obtained immediately most of these birds will surely die.
