Re: Is my parakeet going to be okay? Please answer

Gail gave you a great link, so I hope you will not have any problems finding a real (good) CAV.


If your bird is really not holding *anything* down he wont last long - sorry to say.
You can tell by sunken eyes if he/she is really dehydrated.


But if the liquid benebac stays inside ... that is a good sign.
I mean: not comming back out of the front end again, the diarrhea is not good, but at least things pass through the bird -> no blockage.

Re: Is my parakeet going to be okay? Please answer

As Noodles said, BeneBac isn't a medication. It's called a "Probiotic", which I also give my birds daily just as a supplement, many people take a Probiotic daily just like they do a vitamin, as it replaces the healthy bacteria in the intestinal tract and can help to settle the stomach, so that's probably why your bird is seemingly feeling better...However, it will not treat or cure what is making your bird sick.

There is nothing at all you can do to help your bird at home, and unfortunately as already mentioned, you need to get him to a Certified Avian Vet/Specialist immediately, because otherwise he is most likely not going to make it much longer. Birds instinctively hide all outward signs of illness for as long as they can, so he's probably been sick for a long time, and by the time he started vomiting and having watery stools he was very sick...Birds cannot survive under this kind of stress for very long, and unless cultures are taken to diagnose what is wrong and the correct treatment is provided, he's not going to be okay for much longer...

Gail's link with the search tool for finding an Avian Vet is excellent. Please use it immediately and tell them it's an emergency, and that your Budgie has been vomiting and had runny droppings for quite a while, so that they know that they need to see him immediately. Also be sure to tell them that you've already taken him to the emergency animal hospital and all they did was give him a probiotic and send him home.

Re: Is my parakeet going to be okay? Please answer

A CAV is vet who has taken advanced courses specifically on bird care. Do not go to a pet shop for medical advice on birds. What country are you in? Makes a big difference in the availabilty and quality of specific avian vet care.

Water - I would not try to force water into your bird, just leave clean fresh water in her cage - she will drink when thristy.

Re: Is my parakeet going to be okay? Please answer

I too recommend a second opinion from a certified avian vet, or equivalent if she begins to deteriorate.

As others stated, please don't force water, but you might enhance the appearance and flavor by adding a small amount of pure fruit juice - not drinks loaded with artificial colors and high-fructose corn syrup.

Please keep us updated!

Re: Is my parakeet going to be okay? Please answer

I'm so glad she's OK. Budgies are amazing little things, luckily they can survive several weeks without water (when otherwise healthy), but if I had seen your thread at the time I would have suggested asking a vet to hydrate her with an injection. That saved my budgie's life the first time she got ill, she looked dopey and somehow damp and matted after the car journey to the emergency vet as if sweating profusely, and I thought she could die that night. The vet wasn't qualified to do much with birds either, but what they did was a fluid injection and she looked much much better immediately afterwards that I'm sure she wouldn't have survived long enough to see the avian vet without that injection.
