The temperature in the room is always the same, but i did notice my other budgie started molting but sick one didn't. Maybe i should put some heat source near, though i touched his feet and they aren't cold

He's likely not fluffed up because he's cold, we already know that he's sick and this is why he's fluffed.

Keep medicating him as the vet directed.

You CAN add a heat source which will help him conserve energy. Do you have a small hospital cage for him? Add a heating pad to the bottom of the cage, and cover the cage on three sides. This will help keep him warm and he won't spend so much energy trying to regulate his temperature.

Unfortunately, i do not have hospital cage or heating pads 😞 Would placing a lamp near the cage help? Maybe i cover it with something so i prevent the light?

If you have ever owned chicks you may have a heat lamp, if not they are inexpensive

It's been over 3 weeks since i noticed Arthur is sick. He was on antibiotics for 10days and no improvment. We sent stool to be analyzed to be sure it isn't clamydia, but no results came yet...we contacted another vet who gave him another antibiotic(she thinks it is crop inflammation) and it's been 4 days and still nothing. He is always the same. He eats, but does not want to drink much which is a problem since his medicine is in it so i am giving it to him by drops from hand. And i noticed he startes regurgitating immediately after. So prehaps that is why he refuses to drink much? He regurgitates often after eating or when doing nothing, but it is more after he drinks. I didnt notice he vomits though. I took out all food but millet. Do any of you have any more advice? What food should i give him? It's been so long now and he is not getting better but is still alive and eats and is somewhat active but mostly sleeps

Sorry that your budgie is still ill, where you able to see an avian vet or was it a vet that just sometimes treats birds? Do you need assistance in finding an avian vet? It would be best to find an avian vet or one that has a lot of experience with birds. It is possible that the problem is not bacterial and if that is the case an antibiotic will not help the problem. There are medicines that can be given to help with vomiting but the root of the problem needs to be discovered for proper treatment. Once that is determined it may be better if the vet gives a medication that can be administered directly by you into the birds mouth, that way you are sure of how much the bird is getting into his system. You might try giving some spray millet that has been soaked in the medicated water you currently have.

Hi Iím sorry that your budgie is seek.
I once had a problem with one of my budgies the vet prescribed him an antibiotic that I canít remember its name, but I will post its name when I remember. Anyway the vet told me that since budgies doesnít drink a lot of water, I should keep him without water for 3 hours and then give him the water with the antibiotic in it. That way he will be forced to drink it. He also said that the antibiotic will lysis (break) after couple of hours in the water and thatís why itís best if he drinks the water ASAP.
Please donít try this method until you check with your vet as this might be a wrong method.

Thank you for your reply. Since we are in Croatia, the proper avian vet is 400km far from us, and the vet i took advice from is the only one in the area that knows a little bit more than others 😞 He is not vomiting, the liquid never leaves his mouth that i have seen. He swallows it back. He does love spray millet and i put water on it but he drinks just a few drops and does not want more 🙁
