Hi! I have been recently looking at my budgie. I get him out to play and he jumps on my shoulder. But one day I heard the tiniest squeaking noise that was heard each breath. Other symptoms were SLIGHT tail bobbing.His diet consists of Millets, And Healthy Select Seeds. And each Monday I give him a treat, that includes dried fruit, rice, etc. The next day I went to the vet to basically get scammed. They told me it was an emergency and he wouldn’t live another day. And said that it was form non stick pans, which my mom threw away a year ago. They gave him some oxygen for about 30 minutes. And since we didn’t have any good veterans near by my family decided to take care of him at home. So far he is either getting a little better or just stays the same. He isn’t worsening in my opinion. The treatments I give him is I just sprinkle him cage a little with chamomile tea to give out a fresh smell and since chamomile helps you relax, then he would be relaxed meaning that he would breathe better. And always at night I cover my birds up with a blanket, And my mom boils some chamomile tea and we put it at the bottom of his cage, for the fumes to go up and for him to inhale it for the rest of the night. He still can fly, he’s happy and energetic. Is there any better way to fix his slight difficult breathing at home? Please this is my best friend and I don’t want to loose him!
