I think Pepsi is sick ,worried

I just took a look at Pepsi a few minutes ago. He had a red stain on his wing and was throwing up red motion. He kept moving his head in a circular motion trying to throw up. I think he's throwing up his food, Zupreem Food delights. He had crumbs all over his head , and his face was wet. Pepsi and sprite both like ducking their pellets into their water bowel,I think he was dipping his head in the water while I was at school , trying to bath. I think he might have swallowed some of the nasty water . I change it every night , so they must have dipped some pellets into the water. I am suspicious of the vomit so I will schedule a vet appointment for him. His face looks messy . I don't see a behavior difference , I just came back from school. I will update on his behavior. Am I really just scheduling an appointment for no reason ? He's on his heater right now, which is a good thing.

Re: I think Pepsi is sick ,worried

When you say he is moving his head in a circular motion, is it tilted up to the sky? If so, I think they call that 'star gazing' and usually indicates the need to throw up or nausea. I don't know what would cause him to want to throw up though of its not regurg.

If you're very concerned, see a vet. If you want to see how it pans out, offer ginger to help the nausea. Ginger is safe.

I think he's better , thank god ! My other budgie sprite cleaned him up so he's spotless . He's much better , more vocal. I just think something was stuck down there, so he started vomiting. Though if he vomits more, I will take him to the vet. Thanks guys !
