Default Avian Gastric Yeast Attack

Hello all, goodness I can't beleive how many new members are here so I thought I would let you all know how I deal with a carrier budgie , Avian Gastric yeast or Megabacteria is a horrible and painful condition, unfortunately I have a darling little boy Budget who suffers from this condition.
He has survived a recnt attack without my vet intervening as she is away on holidays.
I was not feeling confident because Budget usually always needs to be crop fed to kickstart his appetite after an attack of AGY.
Upon uncovring my boy in the morning I saw straight away he was not well, flufed up, eyes closed not wanting out of his cage.
Then he vomitted . Action plan: Move to sterile hospital cage with heating pad, fresh water, no wet food, in fact they seldom will eat because it is too painful, the will mouth seed, or fling it out dink more often.
I started him on Antibiotics twice daily, gave electrolytes via beak every four hours, by this time he was not producing any poop just water. I then crushed a lozenger of Antifungal med and mixed it to a paste , gave him this once per day.
During his recovery I kept him super warm, he slept either in his hopital cage next to me or on my shoulder next to my neck for warmth.
I was scared because not having my vet to help out was hard, I then made a paste of Vetafarm PollyAid Plus syringed this into him , of course all of these medications were not given at the same time it was over the course of two days.
Thankfully he has pulled through, now eating oats, soft egg and biscuit and pollyAid.
What caused this attack ? The weather it has been very humid not normal for where we live.
Follow up thorough clean of cage, toys, and feed dishes, and prayers by both my husband and self.
This is how we survived

I'm so glad to hear you were able to help Budget through this AGY attack. He is so lucky to have you.
Sharing this information will hopefully help others who experience the same issue.

Cathy, you are a true inspiration to so many. And I'm so happy to hear that Budget pulled through his most recent attack. I know how it is when your vet is away on holiday, as mine seems to be frequently. You are such an amazing parront, Budget is so very lucky to have you caring for him.

Great job , glad to know that he pulled through. Why do these things seem to happen when the vet is not available, I have been in the same situation. The top shelf in my fridge door is now nothing but bird meds and supplements. I know Budget will continue to improve under your excellent care.
