As far as I know, de-worming is not necessary for birds.
That sets off a lot of alarm bells to me.
I meant 'worming' pardon me. I'm not an expert, I went to one(yes CAV) who checked my bird and he reassured everything is fine and the bird seems fine. I don't know what else to do.

Yes that's very fishy! Are you in the USA? Never have avain certified vets here just dewormed....
Did they swab the beak , mouth crop and do cytology, or culture? They can also do a crop wash , collect the fluid sbdook at it. Was blood work done? A fecal exam??? Fecal culture, fecal gram stain?
