Lung disease and temperature interpretation in parakeets

Parakeet is the most common species of parrots among amateur and famous among breeders. Active nature, beauty and decorative reproduction parakeets are relatively easy to why these birds are so prevalent in homes worldwide. Based on how nice they are so vulnerable perusii are in front of various diseases. A minor infection can be fatal to these birds, whose immune system is very weak. Owners who have more parakeets cage should have a recovery, because if one bird gets sick, you can heal it separate from other birds.

A common problem in parakeets is the lung diseases.'s Respiratory parakeets, as with all birds, is composed of the lungs and air sacs, which have roles in ensuring the necessary reserve of oxygen during the flight, low density and body ensuring buoyancy. Also, the respiratory parakeets has pleura (the membrane that surrounds the inner lining of the lungs and chest cavity). Lack pleura causes any injury no matter how superficial, and that is infected in the chest to rise to diseases that affect the respiratory system. Most parakeets are the lung caused by bacteria, viruses and even fungi.

Although the source of microbial agents have very different lung diseases seen in parakeets occurs in approximately the same ways: lack of alertness and decreasing appetite. Bird sits shriveled, even if it is hot in the room or the budgerigar sounds are changed or no longer play at all. Perusia areas should be protected from circulating air currents (is "current"), drinking water must and to be fortified and if the bird be shriveling, they can sit above the ordinary lamp, that works as a heat source. a parrot Normal body temperature is between 40 and 43 degrees Celsius. If these measures do not improve first aid health of parakeets, be consulted as soon as a vet.


One way to diagnose the health of birds parakeets is checking temperature. Since parakeets like to sit on the fingers or hand owner, the latter can evaluate temperature friend winged feet. The average temperature is 39 feet of a budgerigar degrees Celsius. "Consultation" aimed temperature must be made when the bird is calm and relaxed, otherwise the results can be misleading.

If your feet are hot when the temperature exceeds 40 degrees Celsius parakeets. In summer temperature increases parakeets so hot feet do not need to worry. Also perusii more "fat" have warmer feet, not a sign of any disease. There is also the choice to have suffered a budgerigar panic attack. If the bird stays hot feet long, this may indicate an infection, whereby the body is overheating parakeets. Untreated infections can cause immediate death of a bird. On the other hand, parakeets cold feet may indicate that the bird is stressed. If the episodes, the temperature is low legs, repeat several times a day then this situation can indicate cardiovascular problems.
