Your rescue attempt is very cool-- It makes me nervous (disease-wise) but you have a good heart. I would make sure that you are washing up VERY well in-between handling birds (any point of contact). If he/she makes it, I would still (eventually) make the trip to the vet (mostly for testing and the safety of your other bird)......


Is it possible that this bird was lost and flew into the trash while looking for food and then got stuck or over-heated etc, OR was he actually in a bag with someone's junk etc?

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

Welcome to you and your birds, thanks for rescuing from a trash can!

I hope you are able to get proper medicine to cure the mite issue.

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

Good God....Why wouldn't they just kill her or set her free (Both "options" are STILL TERRIBLE AND CRUEL/unforgivable, BUT putting her in a bag is just insane....even for a crazy person)...I feel like putting her in the trash took more effort than it would have to just release her to die elsewhere (again, still TERRIBLE, lazy and unjustifiable, but THEY PHYSICALLY HAD TO PUT HER IN A BAG ALIVE?!?!)....I don't know what this world is coming to... Did they hate her for some (insane) reason?

If I try to smash a poisonous spider and it is still moving afterwards, I feel GUILT (I imagine what it would be like to be smashed just for living in the wrong place)! I hate the thought of anything (even a "Dangerous" creature) having to suffer. Heck, when I can, I have even been know to catch and release poisonous spiders lol. I would love to know what happened to the owner to make them feel like life was disposable. It would really anger me if it turned out that their life had been completely "functional" because unless you are traumatized by years of miserable treatment yourself, I can't imagine how you would end up thinking this was okay...Unless you were a sociopath (and I want so badly to believe that these are made, not born...then again, psychology seems to indicate otherwise.....YUCK.
Thank God you found her! I really hope she pulls through!

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

The way I read it here (quick check on the dutch side):

afaik is vaseline used a lot when you have few other options - it chokes the mites rather efficiently.
Ingesting it is not a good idea of course, though it will not really get digested or block anything its not something that belongs in a body.
(I could not find anything as esp. harmfull)

The usual anti-parisite-mix (the one with the pipet, Ivermectine etc.) usually takes care of it too.
(Yes of course it is toxic, that is why it is important to use the correct dosis: you want to kill the small-small critters not the larger bird.).

The spray is a possibility (but not the best -> dosage is the problem)- but the same advice: spread the liquid with your hands (drops rather than spray) rather than just randomly spray feathers.

and als always: HYGIENE!!!!
mites are on the bird and everwhere around it... so cage-cleaning like it is your new religion!

You might want to treat your other bird as well, not all birds are as 'sensitive' to them, but the mites will get around...

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

Do NOT let them together but it seems they've already had access to one another.

If you do not have an AV there, you can google ONLINE AVIAN VET. I've never used one to recommend a site. I think it costs US$30-40. Please know that's a guess! Google FACIAL TUMORS BUDGIES SCALY FACE MITES. Petcha.com should cover it well.

Pharmaceuticals and supplements can be ordered online but may need a vet's order.

EACH will probably need an injection of Ivomec since they've associated. There are alternatives but the instructions must be followed explicitly! This will probably, with vacuuming, sweeping and sanitation, take care of it in a couple of weeks.

After, a commercial mite spray should regularly be applied to any cages and toys.

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

Leafy like romaine lettuce, bok choy, spinach, working well for mine, plus a yellow or red bell pepper, just a tiny slice it else it's wasted. Fresh corn will help out weight on but not recommend long term, just a little for now for extra energy

Re: Found a parakeet , will she survive?

Mine won't touch bell pepper. They hate the high fructose. Again, this proves that birds are so very different. HAHA My conures are on a no-carrots frenzy. HAHA
