Question possible health problems with Baby :[

hello all! i got my newest budgie Baby about a month ago. the day after we got him we noticed that he had a big bald patch under one of his wings and there was discharge coming from his vent. so we immediately packed him up and took him back to petsmart. they said they took Baby to the vet and everything was fine. his bald patch is gone and his vent has been clean ever since. weve had him back for about 2 weeks now, and we have had him in quarantine. so my questions are this:
is it possible for budgies to get sick something like when we catch a cold and it goes away on its own, or are all of their illnesses serious?
and is quarantine still necessary even tho its been about a month since he had the problem, and the vet said he checked out ok?
hes currently still in quarantine because im nervous and dont want to take the chance of my other babies getting sick. any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Why don't you take him to an avian vet? Just to be sure. It's better when you hear that the budgie is OK directly from a vet.

I agree with Jackie. Seeing an avian vet would be your best bet.

i tried, but i cant find any anywhere around where i live. for all i know, petsmart could have just told me they took him to vet even if they didnt. im wondering if i can find an exotic animal vet, will that be good enough??

I take mine to an exotic animal vet because that's all there is around here. His patients are 90% birds and he seemed to know exactly what needed to be done and followed all the same procedures an avian vet would do (best I could tell from my research).

Well, don't worry. Where I live, there is no such thing as avian or exotic vets, just VETS. Isn't it terrible? I am so worried that if something happens to Little. I will have to take him to them, who are not specialists. A disaster
