Default Is my budgie going to die?

Michael went to the vets on Thursday and he had chamyida. He is on antibiotics and probiotics but he is vomiting at least once every half hour, spends most of the time with his head tucked into his wing, is making small wheezing noises whist breathing and has had a large dropping stuck to his vent for a few days which won't come off and it is really uncomfortable for him. I really don't think he will make it through the next couple of days and this is the second time he has been seriously ill in his life due to a weak immune system (he is six months old). Is he in a lot of pain? Has he got long left?

Sorry to hear that your bird is so ill. Chlamydiosis also known as Psittacosis in the zoonotic form is treated with doxycycline, is that the antibiotic you are giving? Was it an avian vet that you saw and did they caution you that this is a zoonotic disease, meaning it can be passed to humans? Perhaps your bird would be better served if it was hospitalized for an initial period, was that discussed with the vet? If the bird is worse now than when the vet saw him you need to contact the vet and let them know. There is a drug that can be given orally or by injection that will help with the vomiting. If he is vomiting so often I would call the vet an advise of that. What directions were you given for home care?

There are specific tests to confirm the diagnosis of Chlamydia, were those tests performed or is the diagnosis an assumption based on symptoms? I am curious because a 45 day treatment of doxycycline is definitely the treatment of choice for it and although Baytril is a common broad spectrum antibiotic, used commonly for bacterial infections, I have never heard it being used against Chlamydia.

Have you re-contacted the vet since you had your budgie in for the first appointment?
You need to let the vet know exactly what is going on with the budgie if you want it to survive.
Unless there is quick intervention, the budgie is not going to make it. You should always contact your avian vet at the first sign of trouble or when symptoms change or continue.
Please contact your vet immediately.

Wishing all the best for your little fellow.

If he is still vomiting and there is no improvement I would not wait until tomorrow, I would contact the vet today, time is of the essence with an ill bird as things can change very quickly.
