BUDGIE HAS A FAT MASS IN THE RECTUM AND THE AREA HAS A YELLOWISH RING AROUND THE OPENING TO THE RECTUM. The vet took an x-ray and learned of this mass. My parents were told that the budgie needs a operation. JO-JO ( the budgies name) likes to eat bread, ice crean, chicken off a bone,corn, gravy and still eats bird seed.JO-JO does not eat these types of food everyday, but she likes certain human foods rom my parents plate. The vet said this was good for the bird. Please help, my parents think they did this to jo-jo.
Did the doctor say the mass was made up of fatty tissue? I've seen birds and mice with fatty deposits but never around the vent area. If you're going to have the mass removed anyway, ask the vet what may have caused it so perhaps it can be avoided again.
