Female budgie has overgrown beak for long time, the contacted vet refused to help and recommended euthanasia. Budgie has no other symptoms, however she constantly lays unfertilised eggs and spends time in nesting box for whole year. Can be overgrown beak connected with pregnancy or is there some other possible cause like hepatic lipidosis or sinusitis, mites etc.? Is it treatable or the only treatment is regular cutting of beak? Which specific tests would you do to find the cause?
Please don’t send me to visit another vet, but tell me YOUR opinion, your recommendations. According to you, what may be the causes and what examinations would you do to uncover them? Thank you for helpful answer! 🙂
