    Urgent URGENT!! Distressed & disoriented budgie after bath.

    Today, I decided to give my budgie a bath in warm water. I took him out & saw that he started having trouble balancing because he was shaking so much. He also began wheezing, which I cannot explain because I made sure he didn't dunk his head in the water or that it didn't touch his beak. This...
