Q. Gooday, my bird has uterine cancer and received hormone shits x 3 and has has course of antibiotics in Dec. 13 yo Budgie She started gulping, reflux?

Answered By

A. If your budgie is showing new signs of illness it is best to have her looked at by your local avian vet. While the symptoms could be related to the treatment she received previously, she would need an examination to determine if that was the case. Gulping may be due to trouble breathing, difficulty eating, or other various illnesses.
