I took Kiki to the vet and he told us the many possibilities and we did a couple of things there. We found out through that test, where a tube goes into the budgie's crop area and gets a bit of it to see if there's any bacteria and she had discharges from her nose which he said was also an infection so he gave us two medicines for her. One is Baytril which i'm going to have to give 0.5ml to her through s syringe twice a day (every 12 hours) and on the 28th we have another appointment just to see if she's doing better. He also gave us powder vitamins to give Kiki called Nekton-s because she doesn't get enough vitamins since she barely eats anything
well i've always been worried that she's underweight but he weighed her and she was 36g and her crop was full
he said she's at the perfect weight
My mom wasn't too happy with the price
it was $302.55 plus we'll have to pay $55 again on the 28th just to see the vet, vets are so expensive these days.. not even my dog's vet costs as much
. So i said i'll get a job and pay it all back to her, i'm just glad my little baby is going to be okay. She was a very good girl
she didn't bite when the doctor grabbed her and the nurse said that kiki didn't bite her either when they were doing the tests
so i'm super proud of her. He taught me how to give her the medicine through the syringe and i got it
One thing that went bad is now she's a little scared so i'm not going to go to play with her as much since she's probably had a lot of stress, i'm sure if i had a tube going down my throat i'd be pretty stressed.
Lesson learned - Vet's are super important!! even if there is only a small change in behaviour, take your birds to the vet! Kiki was chirping the whole way
and in the vets office as well
my step dad thought it was silly because she was happy and wasn't poofed up, she was playing and everything but that one day where her behaviour changed, i noticed something was wrong and even though she went back to her normal self yesterday, she had a sinus & crop infection! So everyone take your birds to the vet at least once every year (if not twice) it's very important!!
Oh and yes i'm still getting the new budgie but my mom said in a couple of months or so just to make sure kiki's okay
I'm sure proud of my baby
I'm just not fond of having to grab her to give her medicine, i'm sure she'll hate me for a while since he said that birds don't really like the taste of it but millet can work miracles
