Re: PLEASE help-my budgie is sick

Is there a zoo nearby, they may be able to tell you where to go find a vet. They often have avian vets.

Re: PLEASE help-my budgie is sick

I am so sorry that Bamboo is sick. Maria's thought about calling a zoo is a good idea.
I hope he gets better soon.

Re: PLEASE help-my budgie is sick

i called the pet store again. the guy told me to mix something called paramycin in his water. bamboo has now started smelling weird.

"Paramycin" sounds like an antibiotic, which might be effective if you knew Bamboo had a bacterial infection. It would be better than nothing, I guess, although dosage would be very important, and of course, there's the problem of administering it, especially if the bird's not eating or drinking. What city are you in in India, Cassie?

Re: PLEASE help-my budgie is sick

Again, it is not wise to treat your bird with any type of anti-biotic without knowing what's going on! Above posting have mentioned about asking the local zoo to see if there's a vet you can see about Bamboo's sickness.

Re: PLEASE help-my budgie is sick

thanks so much
well i live in bangalore, karnataka. its somewhere in the south. well i tried finding someone online too, but there is no one at all. many of the dog vets say they have bird care, but ive heard horrible things from people who keep birds. apparently they dont know anything about birds and give them something for dogs, or something not safe.

i cant find a zoo who will pick up a call.

well even if they do, i think their vets would be those extra professional ones, really costly for exotic birds, and stuff. but then our zoos call cockatoos and macaws "exotic" so maybe i can try
do any of you have an idea of how serious this is? is it like CRITICAL or warning for alert? if its very urgent, i'll just take him to anyone i find.

Re: PLEASE help-my budgie is sick

i dont have any idea why this is happening. he was okay till 3 days ago. im so sure he ate nothing bad, he had clean water, we dint use any sprays, its not too cold......
well, if it might help, he's also molting. could he just be tired? people tell me i worry too much.
he also seems to cheer up temporarily when i put him the sun. he will tweet sometimes, and ring his bell, but after 5 mins, he tries to find shade, and goes back to sleep

Re: PLEASE help-my budgie is sick

Look it does sound like you worry a lot. But that's a good thing because you love your baby bird Don't stress he will be ok. I"ll have a look online and see what I can find
