Default Jessie - Vet visit update from 4 weeks ago

so about a month ago i posted a topic on here about Jessie shaking her butt before she poops and holding her tail down to an angle

As some of you may remember, i visited the vet for the first time about a month ago he examined her droppings under a microscope and didnt find anything, and he told me to try two weeks of probiotics and then 2 weeks of apple cider vinegar

it seemed to work for the 1st three weeks then her symptoms came back and she started to rub her butt end with her feet and preen at her back end a lot too so i took her back to the vet on Thursday. the vet examined her droppings with a microscope and said he could see one mega bacteria but said that because it was only one, he cant be sure if its bacterial or fungal so hes put Jessie on a course of antibiotics and fungal medication for 10 days and he told me to take her back if this hasn't cured the problem

its really difficult trying to syringe it into her mouth though as she either refuses to swallow it or spits it out, so i have to put a small amount in each time and wait for to swallow it, if anyone has any advise on ways to give it to her id appreciate it

i just thought i would share the update with all those who advised me

Carla,

Thanks for posting your update on Jessie.
I hope the medications the vet prescribed for her will take care of the problem for your pretty little girl.

thanks, hopefully she will get used to the taste of it and start swallowing it rather then spitting it out

When you have to give medication via the beak it is daunting and very scary if you haven't done so before. I actually asked my vet to show me how to hold and administer via a syringe.
Don't be afraid to ask the vet next time . You can google the correct way how to hold a budgie as well.
Another tip is give medications either early morning or evening when it is dusk. They are generally quieter and easier to hold.
You can also make it a two person operation if convenient.
Gently catch her, use a glove or small piece of material or towel. That way she will not associate your hand with something bad.
Keep her in an up right position, have the medication at room temperature budgies don't like cold liquids . Have the medication measured up and all ready to go as well as some treat for being good. I hold bird in left hand use thumb and pointer finger to encase head gently and the rest of the bird's body encased with your remaining fingers. Hold gently and don't place any pressure on chest area. Use the syringe and gently tap or prise open the beak from the side, don't squirt it all at once as she can choke and panic causing her to stress and spit it out . Practise makes it easier. Good luck I hope she gets better soon.

Hi Carla,

Thanks for the update I hope Jessie gets well soon. Like Cathy, my vet also showed me how to administer medication. Is it possible for you to go back and ask for a demo? you will get the hang of it though and as Cathy said Google ir YouTube should also be a good aid.
Good luck with everything.
Niamh
