Ada, asking a question such as this is NOT the best thing to
do on a bird board.
You will get MANY opinions and probably most of them will not
If you took your bird to the vet and he prescribed an
antibiotic for him, a phone call to this same vet will get
you a more constructive answer than you will get here.
Didn't this vet want to have a follow up to do another
culture to make sure the bird was indeed free of E-coli after
