Welcome to you and your Jendays during trying circumstances. So much wisdom in Laura's advice, no need to duplicate!

Your beloved birds have been sick for close to two weeks and have not improved with broad-spectrum antibiotics. Nothing wrong with previous efforts, but a certified avian vet dearly needed to make the best judgement of care possible. I hope you can score an appointment (difficult during Covid) or prescription for "big guns" antibiotics/antifungals as needed. Wishing them swift and complete recovery, please keep us updated.

Re: sick Jenday need help

Yes sorry, hand off..
Scott thank you for the pic edit i appreciate it. The last vet they saw is an avian specialist. I thought we were making some progreas on the amoxycilin/nystatin/probiotic combo but today he just seems worse. Is there a way to upload a video of him?

My pleasure, beautiful bird!! Best way to upload video via YouTube link. Other methods such as Vimeo are possible but unfortunately it is not possible to upload directly to forum from your source.

Re: sick Jenday need help

prob should calm down before I write this but the vet they saw last monday pretty much told me to F off...atleast thats how I feel..I explained that they saw the specialist last week and she was coming this thursday, i explained the meds, and to make matters worse it seams as though pheonix is starting to show symptoms...ugh im so scatter brained sorry this is all over the place. the rest of the 2 places i had on my list didnt have their avian specialist in. The non-specialist vet they saw last week that called said im better off waiting to hear from the avian vet. I asked if they could atleast do the blood work and she told me the specialist would be better becasue "they dont have an account for avian bloodwork and it would probably take longer than waiting untill thursday" while i was on the phone with the vet pheonix started regurgitating ( maybe im paranoid and she was adjusting her crop) but maybe she is sick with the same thing...im at a loss. so toto has been sitting on a perch for like an hour (hes not bobbing his head anymore or screech thing anymore as much unless i get close to him and start talking to him...he has his foot up balancing on one and falling asleep, a little wobbly. i gave them seeds taht they hammered because i feel that anything is better than nothing at this point. I gave toto some of the formula you suggested but wasnt succesfull after, he just keeps running/flyting away from me and i dont want to burn his energy so i gave them the seed. the poops are watery..pheonixes more than totos now. I help off on their fruit chop today as i dont know what to do..what if its the food? the avian specialist never got back to me..i sent her another text saying i didnt want to keep bothering her but hes not doing good and that i felt pheonix was starting to show symptoms and I would pay her 1000 to come out tomorrow first thing if thats what it took (im def not rich and dont have money to throw away but i cant lose my babies) then i thought about what if its me, am i getting them sick? my father was in the hospital the week before christmas with 2 blood infections and c-diff. I went to their house and helped my mom get him to the car before the hospital found out thats what it was and than have visited too. I wash my hands somuch they are dry itchy and swollen but I have cuts all over them. what if i have a staph infection...what if im sick or have covid or something? i went down the rabbit hole in this forum and found the cases of people having strep and losing the flock...well my throat is scratchy in the am but ive had strep before and wouldnt think i have it now, but paranoia and helplessness is setting in, im losing my mind. i prob got side tracked and forgot to add something

Re: sick Jenday need help

I'm so sorry.
O put Penny standing on a towel and make a cave around her and hold my left over her with thumb in front if chest. To restrain if trys to get away. Then I out syringe just at tip of beak ir slightly left. Tge furst time I opened her beak sbd just out a drop in. She spit out. Tgen I waited abd brought tip of syringe to beak im lucky she opened mouth I out a drop in sge played with and ate, then we repeat a drop ir two at time. Tge food is warm. You can play with thickness. She likes it slightly thicker than directions. Yiu can move food bowl and water close to where he sits. You can offer millet spray. You can offer egg food that dry crumble stuff they sell for molting parakeets. You can try crumbled nutri berries as it's fortified. I would nit feed fruit as promotes yeast over growth with all that sugar. You can still offer veggies. Warm cooked sweet potatoes or warm mashed butternut squash.

Yiu can offer a half teaspoon of live culture Greek yogurt with no artificial sweetners. It won't her your burd to have a little and may help balance GI, I do this. My vet is ok with it, but she doesn't recommend it , as may do nothing. Sooo????

I do nit think you made your birds sick. We all worry. But if you aren't having diarrhea, then I don't think you spread c- diff to bird.

What is his normal weight? How much did he loose?

I'm sorry to get you so stressed. It is important to be seen right away. I wish tgey would see you. I hooe tge vet thst us coming Thursday can be convinced to see you sooner.
