I am so sorry to hear about your loss of your little sweety.

How did the vet tell you to administer the antibiotics? In the drinking water? If that is the case, budgies will often not get the proper dose needed to have any effect on the infection since they may not even drink the water (or they may not drink enough). It is also possible that your little guy's infection was too advanced to be treated.

The only way to really know what happened would be to have a necropsy done on your little one. Many people choose not to have that done, so it is very much a personal preference. It may be something you wish to consider.....
