I really hope that your budgie is okay. It's never happy when they go.

Praying for you and budgie!

Hi,

I just spoke to the vet regarding Cutie and how she has not improved.

The vet said we can do a blood test to see if her white blood cells have gone up as that means the antibiotics and anti fungal have worked but she may have scar tissue which means she might always have breathing difficulties
OR
she said if her white blood cell count is still low then it could be that she is resistant and will give her a new antibiotic but I have told the vet that she doesn't need to do another blood test as I don't want to stress her out more. So the vet said she will post Cutie's new medicines, now I am not sure if I have done the right thing, because if she has scared tissue do you guys think the new antibiotic will be bad for her? do you think I should do a blood test and then give her new medicines if needed?

If the vet is willing to switch meds then I think that is worth a try and less stressful for Cutie.

Hi,
We gave Cutie doxx-sol and she aspirated on it, and the vet said not to continue the medicine and that was the first and last dose of doxx-sol. Cutie has still not improved but the weighing scale says her weight is 47g it stays the same in morning and night (which is a bit weird) and I am posting her latest poop pics please tell me what should I do next? As I feel even after paying so much to avian vets, they still haven't diagnosed anything properly and she is still not well, also they are very far.
Do you think maybe something is wrong with her liver? She had an x-ray done few weeks ago, and so was just wondering if there was something wrong with the liver wouldn't it show up in the x-ray? but the x-ray was done before doxx-sol was given.

I have heard about f10 being used to keep the cages and food pots clean and also a nebuliser can someone please tell me which F10 should I buy? and if they are effective?

Is Cutie an English Budgie, if not 47 grams is pretty heavy. You say she is still not well, what symptoms are you seeing now, is she still having respiratory issues, since she is maintaining her weight she must be eating well. It is sometimes possible to determine if the liver is enlarged by an x-ray, and an experienced avian vet may also be able to feel and enlargement, but it is the blood work that would be more specific in determining if the liver is compromised in some way. Many times when the liver is impaired you will see a yellow to green cast to the urate portion of the droppings, but just judging by color can be deceiving because often a tinge of color can appear in the droppings based on what the bird is eating,the droppings you posted do not look discolored to me.

hi,

Do you feel the poops look normal especially the first ones.I was just reviewing the post again you mentioned fluid build up in the system what do you mean by that. I feel cutie has not recovered because when she poops it takes her efforts and there is also bubbles in poop which suggests straining as well i feel it could be a GI infection however after the meds for respiratory she has also started the wheezing noise and watery sneeze every night. she is not an English budgie but when i see her eating she is isnt eating too much as the scale seems to suggest instead her crop look quite small compared to when she was healthy her kneel bone seems to be protruding and how she used to eat then. also after she aspired the medication she seems to eating quite slowly. When i felt under her kneel bone it seems quite soft or maybe i dont know what I am doing - do you think it could be gas? I have the blood test and x ray I could post them if you would like to have a look. The blood test indicates no liver damage.

By fluid build up I mean that there could be fluid within the body cavity between the organs. When this happens if there is a good amount of fluid there it can cause other problems such as labored breathing because the fluid is taking up space that should be available to the air sacs, the vet can remove the fluid if there is any there. I am not a vet so I cannot explain the lab tests to you, you need to speak to the vet about that and ask questions. I know you are frustrated with the vets you have seen but you need to keep the vet informed of any changes in Cutie. You had mentioned that the vet thought it might be Aspergillosis, that takes a long time to treat, did you read the article in the link I gave you in a previous post? If you suspect a GI tract infection you should at least take a fresh dropping to the vet to have it tested and ask about the bubbles you are seeing or give them a call and let them know what you are seeing. Is there more than one avian vet at the facility you were at last, if so, if you are not happy with the vet you saw there, see another. With all the tests Cutie has had I would hope that some conclusion could be made and if not then the vet should just admit that they cannot determine what is wrong, that can unfortunately sometimes happen.

Hi everyone,
So I went to follow up appointment and told the vet about the bubbles in her poop. The vet said to wait till her poop results come back. I also mentioned DGM and guardian angel but he said guardian angel or the probiotic Avipro that he prescribed will be fine. He also said that fungitrax and marbocyl must have worked as her weight increased, and I also told him that her weight had increased to 49g but now it is 44g.He didnt say anything to that. I told him that she is still making weezing noises and her voice changes after she drinks water, he only said that I should use nebuliser with f10 to that. But I forgot to ask him what happens now, since she only had first and last dose of doxx-sol so what if she has resistant aspergillosis?
(Cause I did not continue the treatment after he asked us to stop the medicine, since the medicine came out of her nose and she had made clicking wet noises that incident happened on 5th april.I believe I gave her the medicine very fast that day.)
Do guys think she might have resistant aspergillosis?

You need to call the vet and ask your questions about resistant aspergillosis and address any other concerns you have at this point in time.
