One of our budgies had fresh and dried blood caked around his vent this morning. He was also obviously distressed / traumatised.
We cleaned him up with salt water and found a fleshy swelling around his anus that extrudes about 7-8mm. The bleeding is coming from around here but I couldn't pinpoint the source.
Also, what looked like more swolen flesh came loose in cleaning - it was shaped like an hourglass about 5mm x 2mm:
- Vomited seeds were all about the cage
- There were no bloody droppings - couldn't tell if he's even been pooping, though
- He pooped while we were cleaning him - it was relatively large but otherwise unremarkable
- I can't take him to a vet - the only one in the country is > 200 miles away; doesn't work on Sunday; I don't have a car
Any advice / assistance would be greatly appreciated. I'm at panic-stations here...
