Hi, so my budgie has had dirty vent on and off for almost as long as I’ve had him. It’s something I’ve always been concerned about, so I took him to two different vets and they’ve said that he was fine. One even did a fecal exam and the results came out clean. But his poop is extremely watery. Sometimes it’s only water. There are still feces, but it’s not too well formed (as well as the urates) and it always sticks to his butt. He is an English budgie, and I’ve heard that many other show budgie owners have had this issue because of their extra fluff, but it still concerns me because it’s slightly smelly. It’s only smelly on him, not from from the cage. I don’t want to let it build up so I’ve been putting him into a bowl of warm water but I can tell that that’s stressful for him. He eats primarily pellets, and occasionally gets seeds with egg food (because he’s moulting) and I give him fresh fruits and veggies regularly. I’ve been putting some ACV in his water as well. But I don’t know what to do at this point because it’s stressful for the both of us to always be trying to get the poo off his vent feathers and spending money on vets just for there to be nothing wrong. I’ve looked up a lot of situations like this, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of help. If you know anything, please let me know!
