rememebr my friends white budgies? well one died and she dosent got money for a vet. so i told her to make sure it has plenty of food and water and veggies and to keep it warm and covered sleep for 12hrs. is there any thing she can buy that might help it from being sick too? i dont know what the other one had. she said it just died when she went to replae the water.
Is there any way she can find the money to see a vet? There's no way to treat something that we don't know what it is and the only person who can find that out is to see a vet. Maybe she can work out a payment deal with the vet?
A vet is definitely the best way to go. Birds show tend to show similar symptoms no matter what the problem is, so it's hard for amateurs to figure out what's wrong. What symptoms does the bird have, and are they the same symptoms shown by the bird that died?
she said it had no symtons playing with the other one when she turned her back and wamp. the vet is probably out of the qeastion. since her parents dont speak english and dont understand and she dosent got the money becuse she is going to school and stuff... i geuss we can only hope for the best.
The bird might have had a heart attack, to suddenly go without warning like that. If it was a young bird it could have been born with an internal defect that just happened to kick in right then, and if it's an older bird it's possible that diet-related problems could have contributed. If she can't go to a vet, then about all she can do is keep a close eye on the surviving bird for the next 2-3 weeks in case the bird that died had symptoms that she didn't notice, and the surviving bird starts showing them too.
If diet might have been a factor then improving the diet would obviously be helpful in the long run, assuming that the bird will cooperate. In the short run, a little Pedialyte in the water wouldn't hurt but it probably won't do any good either since it really sounds to me like the first bird had a heart attack. If it had been an infection, the bird probably would have gone through a noticeable decline before it died, with some obvious symptoms of illness when the bird got too sick to hide it any longer. When an infection worsens dramatically during the night the owner might not get a chance see any symptoms and wakes up in the morning to a dead bird, but in this case the owner was right there and didn't see anything until the bird had already passed away.
