Default Tallulah diagnosed with airsacculitis

Just got back from the vets with my little butterball Tallulah. This morning when I got her and her sisters up I noticed that she still seemed sleepy, was puffed up and her breathing seemed a bit labored (noticeable tail bobbing) her poop was also very watery. I called the vet and they said I could bring her in right away. The dr. says she has airsacculitis He put her on Orbax antibiotic drops (2 drops once a day) and said to keep her apart from Scout & Rumer until she is done with her meds (7 days). There are no avian vets in my area and though the dr's bio says "He is interested in exotic animal medicine, particularly snake and bird medicine", he made a point of telling me that he doesn't normally see birds this small...

Which is what brings me here...does anyone on here have any experience with airsacculitis? Is there anything else I should do other than the meds and keeping them apart?
