Q. I have 4 zebra finches at home. But one of them seems to be wheezing and her tail is bobbing. I'm not sure if its air sac mites or something else.

A. The signs you are describing may be compatible with air sacculitis due to an air sac mites, bacterial, fungal or protozoa infections. I would recommend to rule out first the possibility that air-sac mite infection. Your veterinarian can prescribed a treatment that can easily eliminate mites.
The other possibilities require different type of specific treatment.
