Did you see an Avian Vet or a regular vet?
Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma. This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment. This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"
She may be having a reaction to the anti-biotic but there is no way anyone on the forum can really help you. She needs to be seen by an Avian Vet to determine the proper diagnosis.
If you saw an Avian Vet, please call them right away.
If not, please locate one and take her in as an emergency patient.
Good luck and please let us know how she does.
