Urgent: Sick budgie

I have an 8 year old male budgie. Name is Sora.
This Friday it will be two weeks from when he sprained his leg.
He went to the vet at that time. Starting today he has been fluffed up for an entire day,not using or moving his foot, not applying pressure on foot, only rests the foot down on his knee, no signs of bruising or swelling, he is rapidly breathing with clicking sounds.please help.

Re: Urgent: Sick budgie

Welcome to the forum but I’m sorry for the circumstances.

Rapid breathing and clicking are not good, I’d recommend you get your bird back to the vet, hopefully a certified avian one, as soon as possible. Keep him warm and as comfortable as you can in the meantime. I wish you the very best of luck!

Thanks.
Only problem is I have classes tomorrow.
The vet also said come backif bird isn't eating or drinking. I'm very worried right now.

Re: Urgent: Sick budgie

Sorry. Does sound serious. Can someone else take him in? Family, freind? Is it a class you can skip?

Re: Urgent: Sick budgie

With the symptoms you’ve described your bird could decline very rapidly. Please do try to get him to the vet ASAP.

Re: Urgent: Sick budgie

My mother refuses to take him.
I have no family around that will take him to the vet.
Is there anyway of keeping him stable

Re: Urgent: Sick budgie

Not that I’m personally aware of but someone else may weigh in. But you should tell your mother that your bird’s condition is very serious and he really does need professional help from the vet!

Re: Urgent: Sick budgie

Yeah.
That is what I've been telling her.
I'll have to see his condition in the morning I hope he'll be okay.

Re: Urgent: Sick budgie

Clicking sounds...... thats a sure sound of air sac mite to me
Buy a product called 'Vetafarm Avimec', and apply the recommended dosage for Budgies
If it is air sac mite, you MUST act fast
It won't hurt if he does not have it and you give him the medication, i use the stuff all the time as just a preventative

Thanks

Re: Urgent: Sick budgie

Welcome to you and Sora. Please understand his condition may be extremely critical. When a bird is in obvious distress the illness is likely advanced but not hopeless. I hope you are able to take Sora to the vet tomorrow.
