    Urgent- Budgie bleeding please help!

    Hi, i have noticed recently that my bird has started to itch its head a lot, and recently it has started to get worse and has started bleeding.

    I bath them weekly and use anti mite spray

    So wondering what was wrong?

    Thanks if you have a look at the pics below.

    Anything that can be done about that? Or is it natural for that to happen i mean there is a lot of blood as you can see?

    the other bird is fine, it dosnt pluck this one which is bleeding, it does it itself by scratching it with it's legs and using its beak.. not sure what a vet would do about this.

    That is severe. NOT a molt. The other bird may be plucking the other when you aren't watching. Yes, he may scratch the area as it is irritated, but that is a lot of damage. Separate the birds.

    Like Warbuckle said, use corn starch or flour to help stop the bleeding, but get the bird to the vet ASAP. This is a serious issue. There may be underlying health issues causing the itching, this could become infected, and more reasons why this bird should see a vet.

    I hope the little guy will be ok.

    Re: Urgent- Budgie bleeding please help!

    this is only a suggestion--- I am not a vet, but if one of my tiels get a cut or scraped like that,I asked my vet if I could put nepsporin on it- she said that would be fine. I did and by the next day, you could see a big improvement. I swear by that stuff and always have a supply here, they now have it available in a spray, you would'n't want to get it infected. to be really sure take the bird to your vet and see what caused it in the first place.

    i dont think you can buy neosprin here Sweeties. Our equiv is dermisol- and the version you want has a mild aneasetic in it, and is antibacterial. And prescription only

    Good idea tho.

    The only avian vet i know of in London in CJ Hall on Sheen Road in Acton- tho i dont know them personally. Only from advertising. Make sure it;s an avian vet if you can. i can testify there are a lot of vets in london who will see birds, who REALLY shouldnt. One particular one on the A4020 you should avoid like the plague!


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Re: Urgent- Budgie bleeding please help!

    Oh I am so sorry for your loss. But just a suggestion of precaution. Please wash the cage entirely, all the toys, perches. Of course without using any soap. Just a hot water. This washing thing I found important as anything left from the lost budgie might get spread through different mediums, you never know.
    I hope you and your other budgie are fine. But I would just like to tell you something, I dont know since when you noticed the bird. But you should take to vet immediately as soon as you see something abnormal and unusual in your budgie. I have lost two budgies, and only we didnt take him to the vet when we spotted something unusual. It costed alot. We lost our baby.

    Take care of yourself...
    Good luck...

    Big hugs to you and your budgie....
