Re: I need your help!

Yep, while an avian vet might start testing the droppings, they would be aware of next steps/methods of testing. From a cloaca swab to a throat swab or even a blood test. I'd find a vet who is trained specifically for birds, then push for a throat swab (especially since her breath smells off).
