Thank you for your patience.

You're through to Dr. Edele, a UK vet.

Please ignore any requests for a phone call as the website sends these automatically.

Do you mean that your budgie is physically swelling or that he's puffing his feathers?

Is Bluey eating/drinking/pooping normally?

When did this start?

Started yesterday . I haven’t seen him eating I have been trying to put some steam in the cage with a couple of drops of essential peppermint oil. It seemed to calm him down he has just started up again squeaking. I have to b careful as there is another budgie in the cage.
