You're welcome -- I wish I could do more for you but I'm not trained as an Avian Vet.

Thank you for your advise though you've given me an idea. Could I get in touch with a budgie expert - or a vet in the country that deals with budgies more often and have them talk to my vet and recommend treatment? Do you think they would?
He has just done another dropping and it has a lot less blood in it again. - this is what happened when he first went on the antibiotics. Could it be an infection? He's not in contact with any other animals at the moment so he can't have picked anything up from them? Could it be that the treatment wasn't long enough?
Again thank you so much for replying. I can't tell you how much it means to me that you responded.
Yes, getting in touch with an Avian Vet and having him/her consult with your regular vet and offer advice for treatment is an EXCELLENT idea!.
If you are able to reach Dr. Ross Perry (who's numbers are listed under On-Line Avian Vets), he is very well-known and I believe he frequently consults with other vets with regard to treatment protocols.
If you have another Avian Vet in mind, by all means contact him/her instead of or in addition to Dr. Perry.
Yes, the blood in the stools may be an indicator of an infection.
An individual trained in Avian Medicine will know more about the most likely cause of his condition than I.
I'm sending lots of healing energy and positive thoughts for your little guy.
Please do keep us updated on his condition.
