    Budgie cere is letting go?

    So one of my budgies got Scaly face. I treated twice with Ivermectin spot on, and it didn't do anything.
    I went to an avian vet and he told me I should put vaseline on it twice a day for 2 weeks, and come back to see him.
    The vaseline actually worked, as the brown and crusty stuff started to fall off. The last crusty part seems to be letting go as well, however, it seems attached to the cere itself! I tried to gently lift it, and her cere was definitely also going up!
    I am SO scared right now. I've got another vet appointment tomorrow, but was hoping that you guys maybe have some clues for me in the meantime! Is here cere going to fall off due to the mites? Is there maybe something else going on?

    I'll try to get some pictures up asap!

    I would suggest calling your vet office, and telling them what is happening to the cere.

    Oh my goodness how scary and I do hope you can call the vets and hopefully take your little bird to the office so they can have a look at it. I would be very scared as well and I really do hope you can see the vet before tomorrow. Please let us know how it goes when you get back.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
