Unhappy Budgie eye injury

I accidentally spooked my birds today by knocking a seed bag over and they all took off around the room. My budgie collided with my cockatiel, and when he finally landed, he was squinting one eye and rubbing it on his perches. I really canít tell where he injured himself as there was no bleeding. All I can really see is maybe a little redness on the skin surrounding the eye (but feathers are in the way) and he doesnít seem to bring the upper lid down anymore when he closes his eye. Heís acting like his usual self, except he keeps the bad eye closed more often. Does anyone know what I can do to help him?

Re: Budgie eye injury

I would get him to a vet if it doesn't get better in a day, maximum. Even for humans, eye injuries should be seen by a medical professional.



Welcome to the forums, btw!

Re: Budgie eye injury

Ouch, sorry to hear of potential eye injury. Agree with Bug, above. Avian eyes are quite different from mammals, so avian vet best suited. Hopefully it is just a mild abrasion, eyes tend to heal quickly. Ophthalmic solutions can be prescribed if needed.

Re: Budgie eye injury

Little guy seems to be doing fine today! His eye looks normal, and he isn’t closing or rubbing it anymore. I’m hoping it was just a minor irritation. Thanks so much for your help everyone!

Re: Budgie eye injury

Good to hear! Apparently just an irritation or swelling that subsided overnight.

Likely he just got a good poke in the eye.
