Customer Question

My budgie has lost a little of his voice. It's not as high and chirpy as it usually is. He is still eating and flying. He sounds like he has a sore throat. Any solutions? What is it?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How old is he?

Does he sound hoarse or just lower pitched?

Any sneezing or discharge from the nares or eyes?

Does he appear to be breathing faster? Any tail bobbing or reduced activity?

Does he feel thinner along his keel (chest)?
