my bird is unwell been to vets twice once for xray & fluids, then fluids & anti-botics he keeps vomiting & his poos/wees are clear liquid. the vet says all we can do is hope he flushes out the thing that is making him sick, any ideas on what i can do for him at home, ive put some wet mix & banana,& sugar water.

The sugar you are giving bird is poison and will kill him. Never use sugar with a bird nor salt either.

As Tracie said, you must find an Avian Vet that does testing to see what kind of problem is there. The flushing the system out is going to kill your bird as will an infection left untreated with the correct meds for the infection.

Vet doesn't know what is wrong with bird
by: Tracie

If your vet doesn't know what is wrong with your bird, then you need to Find an Avian Vet that will run tests and treat what is wrong instead of just trying to flush the bird's system.

Dr B can not help, because tests need to be run to know what is wrong. He suggests you find another vet right away.
