Default Worried about my baby

Hi Dear friends: my female and male budgie were checked by the avian vet and they were both deworming. While the avian vet was deworming my budgie and ibi was completely wet. The vet put her in the top of the cage and she took her hand so fast that ibi fall from the cage on her back. The next day she was blue and holding her left feet. The avian vet came two days after and said she doesn't have any bruise or fracture that perhaps ibi was just in pain and she gave her some drops. Ibi's feet seems fine but sometimes when she runs and gets excited on top of her cage she jumps and hop and falls forward . The avian vet told me she was overweight more than 50 grams. I wonder if her weigh is making her loose the equilibrium while jumping. She falls forward when she jumps fast and falls and his beak ends on the floor. She looks at me like saying " what's is going on?" This has never happen to me? Umm
Her nails are also long !
On Saturday I will go to another vet to have her nails cut

Can anyone guide me on this?

At 50 grams Ibi is overweight and that will definitely affect her balance.
When you see the vet to have her nails trimmed, ask what weight she believes would be best for Ibi given her body structure.

Then you need to start weighing her weekly and ensure you are not overfeeding her seed and treats.
She should only be getting 1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons of seed per day.
She should be given vegetables - not fruit which is high in sugar content.

You need to encourage her to get more exercise by playing with her and/or working with her with clicker training.

I'm still worried Deborah :/
I'm already following your advices
I hope it's only a coincidence that this problem start after ibi felt to the floor (vet's accident)
She gets so happy when she see me and start jumping and flirting but if she jumps too fast she fell forward and land with her beak on the bars from the cage and it makes me sad :/

The vet said that she didn't have any problem on her leg even though she felt down

But now I don't know

It makes so mad and sad this situation

Default Worried about my baby

Ok I'm getting more worried now. I check Ibi's weigh on my weight app and she has been 50 grams even more since January 2017 and she wasn't falling all over beak. So Then all this started when the avian vet had this accident but she came and check ibi and said there was no fracture, wound or bruise. I can't stop thinking that perhaps there might be something wrong with his left feet or maybe the right one . I'm I over reacting?. I wish the vet hadn't had this accident with ibi. I'm considering a second check up with another vet. This situation makes me sad and anxious. The vet told me that with the data I give her " that ibi gets excited and start jumping and sometimes fall on her beak while being on top of the cage" she said that .. that is not enough information to make a diagnosis and she suggest me to make a video but I haven't been able to make one to ibi where she appears falling on her beak :/

You need a gram scale to weigh a budgie. Human scales can measure kg or lbs are not accurate for a bird that typically would weigh just 35 g (just over an once).
