    Do you give probiotics during or after a course of antibiotics?

    I have done both. If I'm remembering correctly, I believe I gave my tiel probiotics during and then for another 30 days after. (Until we just put him on probiotics always.)

    Yes. But they should be given about 1 1/2 hours after the antibiotic/fungicide dosage.

    Thanks. Looks like Doby did not take antibiotics long enough for one of the nasty infections he was gifted with in the failed rehome. He is back on Baytril. I hope birds don't have the same issue as humans do with fluoroquinolone drugs.

    How often would you say, daily? Weekly?

    To give probiotics? I gave them daily. I hope Doby is better soon.
