    I need help with my Vet Results. Please.

    Hi I took my lovebird for a crop exam and it came back with Staph Aureus and she’s gonna get antibiotics but I’m confused what this all means. I’ve never heard of this before and is it serious? Is the medication dangerous? Please help.

    Urgent Doxycycline side effects?

    My GCC has been taking doxycycline for a couple days because the vet suspected a bacterial infection. He's been less energetic recently and seems to eat a bit slower. In addition, he doesn't move as much as he usually does. Is this a side effect of the medication or is this cause for concern?
