Sorry to hear that but at least you have a diagnosis, do you know if she is being given Amphotericin B or what meds you will be giving at home? I ask because I may be up against the same thing, the bird I left at the hospital is suspect for the same thing, although the tests don't reveal it, the symptoms indicate it and no previous meds have helped him so they are treating for it to see if he improves and will probably to a barium x-ray to look at the condition of the proventriculus.

The vet didn't say what they were treating her with. I only had a few minutes on the phone with her. I'll find out more tomorrow, and I'll keep you up to date.

You may wish to consult your Avian Vet about the using the Sodium Benzoate in conjunction with the medication she prescribes.

Good news! The vet just called, and Bandit has made it through the night. She said that she is perching, chirping and attention seeking, she thinks she's the funniest budgie they've ever had at the office. LOL.

I can pick her up tonight at 7:30
She is being treated with Amphotericin B right now, and the vet will send home Sodium Benzoate to treat the rest of the flock. I'll know more details about this later.

I'm assuming the Amphotericin is given to her orally. I don't know how long she'll need to be on this medication, but I hope it's not too long. Otherwise she'll have to come with us when we make the long drive home for Christmas, which I really do not want to do with her, and stress her out.

That's great news, knowing that she is feeling good takes some of the stress off of you. I think the treatment is for 10 days and sometimes an antibiotic will be added as well to prevent secondary infection. If you are going to be away maybe you could leave her at the vet while you are gone.

Michelle, I'm so sorry to hear that Bandit has not been feeling well! However, I'm so glad that the vet was able to diagnose her and she's doing well now

I hope she and the rest of the flock does well with their treatments.

Cody, I'm hoping for the best for your budgie, too

I never thought of leaving her at the vet's office. I'll have to ask what that would cost.

I've just spent over $500 on her exam, her fecal matter testing, her tube feeding, her medication, and her overnight stay at the office.

That's NOT including the medication that she will be sent home with, and also doesn't include the meds for the rest of the flock. I have no idea how much $$ that's going to cost me yet. I'm afraid to know!

I can't afford much more, especially at Christmas.
