Even though bird keepers don't like the idea of their loved ones being
sick, their budgies can become seriously ill, and this happens within a
few hours in the worst case. There is a large number of diseases budgies
can suffer from; the most frequent are described in this category.
The most important thing is: If a budgie obviously feels sick or even shows symptoms of a disease, you should take the bird to a vet as soon as possible! The blood circulation of budgies is weak and even a slight infection can weaken them much. Helping the sick bird immediately can save its life!
Reading this category of Birds Online should never replace visiting a vet! This category is much more meant as a source of information for responsible bird keepers who want to take care for their sick bird in the best way after they have been to the vet.
Despite the general opinion that visiting a vet is highly expensive, I can tell you the opposite is true. I think that a live of a beloved pet cannot be countervailed with money! Just think about how much you spent on cigarrets, chocolate or for a movie in the cinema - and then imagine how it would be abstaining from another night out for saving your budgie's life! All people who get themselves pets should bear in mind that those lovely creatures can become sick one day - and cause some costs.
Being responsible for an animal also concerns the financial aspect. This means one should be willing to invest in the reconcalescence of a sick budgie! In Germany, pets are protected by law and their owners are obliged to ensure all necessary health care.
An important note
On the one hand it is very important to me to show meaningful pics on my web site. But on the other hand the life and well-being of my birds in fact is the most important thing to me. No photo meant any risk for the shown animals.
