Emile had another checkup today at the vet and his poo sample was clear from megabacteria. He is cured! He is still a bit tired and he needs to restore the good bacteria in his gut. That will get better with time I think. I was told to still add the medication to their water until it's all used up. The vet could hardly believe how much weight Emile has gained, he said it should not even be possible. Thank you so much for all of your prayers, I really do believe a miracle has taken place here! <3

Sabine, that's wonderful news. I'm so glad that Emile has pulled through and is so drastically better!

I hope he continues to improve!

Emile is still not 100% himself and he still eats and sleeps quite a lot more than he did before he got sick. I decided to weigh him to see if he has relapsed. He now weighs 40 grams so he has gained another 2 grams. The recovery from AGY is very slow but he is actually improving still. I continue to give all of my birds guardian angel supplement and the rest of the megabac medicine. They are molting right now so that is also very stressful for them.

Jean is very low on energy even though his lovely wife Hilda is in nesting mode and full of energy, he's not really into it right now. I was worried that he was losing weight so I also weighed him, he is a 50 gram budgie, a big boy. I am hoping that his low energy is due to molting. When I felt him he had a massive amount of pin feathers, way more than is actually visible. I will keep a close eye on him

I'm very happy to hear about Emilie's progress in his recovery!

Bad news. Emile has had a relapse and is on medication again. He has lost 4 grams of weight and is down to 36 grams. My vet was trying to think of some other medication and was even thinking of giving Emile medication straight into his blood stream.
I was looking up some options online to give him at home and came across a product that I had not heard of before. I was wondering about the Birdcare company Megacare kit. Does anyone have any experience with that? Does it work or is it basically the same as giving him apple cider vinegar and then probiotics?

Sorry to hear of his relapse. Has he been on a drug called Amphotericin B, that is the drug of choice to treat active infections of it here in the USA. I have a bird that has been in the hospital 4 times since July with this, the most recent time he was in for 2 weeks and was being given multiple meds including ones for liver support and immune system support.

Yes, that is the medicine he is on, and was on last time for around 5 weeks if not more, but he still relapsed. He also gets a shot of antibiotics and vitamins every week at the vet. Is there something else I can give him to help him recover better?

My bird gets a milk thistle and dandelion supplement in the water and DMG for the immune system, ask your vet about these two things to see if they would benefit your bird.
