Default Vomiting and black droppings

Hello everyone, I think my budgie is in a really bad state. Yesterday he was doing fine, chrping, flying around the house, eating properly and was doing good overall. But this morning he was unusally quiet since he would always call for us early to open his cage but today he was silent. Not long after we noticed that his wings were dropped and he had troubles with climbing and flying. He also vomited (not regurgitate) once and his droppings started to be liquid and black. Now he's mostly sleeping and he seems weaker overall. He's still trying to hide it from time to time. I took him to the vet hoping i would get some help but he barely looked at my budgie and just gave me some antibiotics to put in his water and he also told me to give him very little of apple cider mixed with water, but I'm not really feeling reassured with that. What should I do?

this is his vomit,
and these are his droppings.

Did you take him to an avian vet? If not I suggest you do so. Unfortunately many all creatures vets don't know what they're talking about.

There are no avian vets in my town sadly, so this is the best i could get. He told me that he supposedly has a cold but i don't know if that's really the case.

That plant looks like a philodendron which is toxic to budgies.

Have you been allowing your budgie to nibble on household plants?
The budgie should not have had any access to anything toxic in its environment.

Keep the bird warm and give it Guardian Angel or Pedialyte. There is a recipe in this link if you don't have any on hand:

https://www.talkbudgies.com/articles-...te-recipe.html

It is very important that the budgie continue to eat and drink to get the toxins out of his body.
The Pedialyte will help encourage him to both eat and drink and will help balance the electrolytes in his body. Give him millet soaked in the solution as well as some of the solution to drink.

What particular "antibiotic" did the vet give you?
In order to do the necessary research I need the actual name of the drug.
Some vets that are not well-versed in Avian medicine prescribe antibiotics when they are not needed.
Antibiotics work only on bacterial infections, not on viral or fungal infections.

Budgies don't get "colds" although they do get respiratory infections. It is likely your budgie has is suffering from ingesting toxic material and/or has a crop infection.

Hello again, he does not nibble on the houseplants, he was just standing on a perch above it and the vomit happened to fall on the leaf.

I'll make sure to give him Pedialyte, thank you so much.

The antibiotic he gave me is called Mediflox oral. 1 milliliter of the antibiotic contains: 100 milligrams of enrofloxacin and 7.5 milligrams of benzyl alcohol.

Edit: As of now he started to vomit a big amount of food and he doesn't want to ingest Pedialyte.

See if you can get him to eat millet soaked in the pedialyte.

He is eating but he just keeps vomiting and the color of droppings didn't seem to change.

Do you know how to feed a budgie with a syringe? (Not one with a needle, one for hand-feeding or giving medication).
If not, do you know a breeder in the area, a bird rescue organization or can you get your vet to help you?

You need to try to start getting a little pedialyte onto his tongue so he can swallow it himself. It's important to get him hydrated and then encourage him to eat.
He may need to be fed hand-feeding formula meant for baby budgies via the syringe.

If your budgie does not begin to eat or drink then he is simply not going to make it.
You can contact one of the on-line vets I linked for you for additional assistance.

I'm sorry your budgie is so ill and that I cannot be of more help to you.
The staff and members of this forum are not qualified Avian Vets and can only advise you to seek professional assistance.

The thing is that he does want to eat and drink now. He has appetite. But some time after he eats, he just vomits the food out. And the color of his droppings now varies but it does mostly resemble the one in the photo.

And thank you so much for your help, it is plenty. I really appreciate it.

I'm praying your budgie will recover.

Please do your best to follow the advice given and update us on your little fellow's condition in this thread.
