We found our budgie in 2000. We do not know her exact age and neither does our vet. Recently, she has been starting to act strange. She is breathing heavily, closes her eyes when she's sitting, and leans downward and sits in an upside down position. She also is very messy when she eats, and she was never like that. We recently took her to the vet, and after blood analysis and x-rays, the vet could not find anything. Please help me, I love my bird very much and I extremely worried about her.
Do you know if the vet also checked for parasites (fecal), checked in her mouth for plaque possibly related to candidiasis, examined her for being egg bound. Do her lungs sound OK (I worry about aspergillosis, a fungal infection). I'll ask at work too, see if they have any other ideas.
