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).

Re: I need your help!

From your description of your vet he/she is an exotic pet veterinarian not an avian specialist.

I don’t have the link handy but somewhere on the forum is a link to a website that will find the closest avian vet to you.

Late to the party, but that is sour crop/crop infection.

Get thee to an avian vet.
