I have a budgie which is egg bound. There is an egg shaped, egg sixed protrusion distended from her abdomen.
Today I took her to the vet who undertook an x-ray and came back saying that because there is nothing showing on the x ray then the problem is not an egg but instead is constipation.
Please bear in mind that I am in Thailand. This is not an excuse for bad vetrenary practice but standards are not what they are in the west.
I am not a vet but my bird appears to be pooing ok. I want to know what I can do.
I have done some reading on the internet and understand that a soft shell egg binding problem could be cause by my bird not having enough calcium. I am getting some in the morning as soon as its light. But how quickly might that have an effect?
If anyone has any useful links I can read or watch, I would be grateful. I am pretty sure I am on my own here. The local vets have been useless.
