I just spoke to the Vet and they said that bacterial test won't show accurate due to the fact that she's on antibiotics now. They said that they can do parasite test, but if there's an improvement I should just continue with the course.

That's the thing...today she is much worse than yesterday.. she only ate what I gave her in the morning.. a little piece of carrot and a tiny bit of broccoli. She is sleeping all day, and every time I come to check on her, she stretches. That's all. I didn't see her drinking water at all and she had only one poop so far. It's not a diarrhoea at least, but it's green and quite big, also it has like a shine to it.

We just gave her pain killers, as maybe she felt worse because we skipped it yesterday.
I'll leave her now for a few hours so she gets some rest.

How can I encourage her to drink antibiotic water?

Did you explain the the vet that there has been no improvement and you are extremely concerned?

Antibiotics administered through drinking water are not as effective as those administered orally by syringe or by the vet giving the bird an injection.

It is very important you stay in contact with the Avian Vet and provide updates regarding your budgie's condition.
Your Avian Vet is in the best position to provide you with counsel as she is a trained professional who has examined your budgie.

If you do not feel comfortable with your current Avian Vet's diagnosis and/or treatment plan, then I would suggest you seek another Avian Vet for a second opinion. Many times members get second or even third opinions from Avian Vets to ensure they are getting the best diagnosis and treatment for their budgies.

I'm wishing your little Kiwi a full and speedy recovery.

Kiwi is looking a bit better today. But her poop is green and very watery again.
She preened her self a lot and ate very well in the morning- apple, pear and a bit of seed with probiotics in them. Still sleepy though.

She had a very bad day yesterday. Her bottom feathers had poop stuck in them and she tried to clean it off. She had it in her mouth so I was very concerned. I gave her a warm bath and this morning it's completely clean again. She vomited a clear liquid 2 times yesterday. She was so sad I didn't know how to cheer her up. I brought her cage to the other room to see Ocean, the other bird, and she completely changed. She was chirping and moving around, even ate a bit. Do you think it would be good for her to keep them in the same room, but different cages, so they can see each other? As she seems very lonely and sleepy when she's alone. Maybe she acts 'fine' around him to hide her illness? I can see Ocean is very stressed as he calls for her all the time and waits for reply.

Tomorrow is her last day of antibiotic and other medicine course. If she's gonna get worse after stopping them, I'll take her straight to the Vet again.

Eating apple and pear is going to cause Kiwi's poop to be more watery.
Does she eat pellets as part of her diet or just seed, vegetables and fruit?

If she vomits at all today, you need to let your vet know. That is an important symptom that should not be ignored.

Kiwi passed away this morning. I am devastated.

I woke up super early so I can check on her before going to work. She was laying on the bottom of the cage and moving her legs from time to time, fighting her weakness. Like she wanted to get up, but couldn't. I have this bad feeling that she was in pain. I put a heating pad close to her so she's warm. 20 minutes later she took her last breath and passed away.

I had already lined up an appointment with the Vet on Saturday, as that's the earliest they could've made it with my doctor.

I suspect she had a liver disease from the symphtoms I read.

I am so sad and holding back my tears at work all day.

RIP my sweet baby girl!

I'm very sorry for your loss of little Kiwi.
I know this is a very difficult time for you and you can feel free to send me a Private Message if you'd like to talk.

I'm closing this thread now.

If you'd like to make a memorial or tribute thread to Kiwi, you may do so in the "In Memory" section of the forum.

Fly high, soar free little Kiw; rest peacefully now wee one.
