Baytril and Sun Conure
Hello I had written approximately a week ago in regards to my vet prescribing Baytril to my Sun Conure. After a week on the antibiotics I noticed her droppings started to carry an odor, the bubbles were increasing and also an obvious gas/fart sound was audible when she produced a dropping. What could cause this? I had a PCR done for Clostridia in March and it was negative. Also, Her sneezing has not gotten any better and she is still stretching constantly and holding up her foot, a very slight occasional tail bob, wagging her tail and picking her vent occasionally so the vet said to stop giving her the Baytril.
Now I am even more worried... has the Baytril made whatever problem it is worse? The smell to the droppings was not present before and now the bubbles are almost foam like. The straining to produce them has decreased however. I suggested a culture and she doesn't think it will do any good or give us any information.
She wants to go ahead with the x-rays and thinks maybe she has a retained egg? She was egg-bound in December but has been on Harrison's since February so I thought she wouldn't have problems with eggs anymore. Also she suggested she could possibly have peritonitis? There has been no yolk-coloured droppings and she is still quite playful/vocal. What do you think I should do now? I am so frustrated, I want to figure this out before it's too late! These issues have been ongoing for over a month now :( Thanks for any advice you can provide.
