Hi all
I have been using baytril and amphotericin b for my conure
the period of use is 6 days

should I be worried about any side effects? Such as falling and Wobbliness as a result of the medication?
i do not want my conure to get wobbly and fall off her perch in the aviary, should I be worried?

You might want to keep your conure in it's cage while it is recovering. From reading your past posts it's seems as if it needs the rest. If it is feeling better supervised time in the aviary would be fine. Gage how it is acting in its home beforehand. Regardless I would limit aviary time until off the antibiotic and antifungal medicine. Both of the medications can cause side effects during treatment. 6 days isn't bad. Just like humans if we aren't feeling well we generally don't go for a hike or hit up the gym. I hope he feels better.

yes thank you, she is in a small cage with enough room for her to eat climb play and sleep. I was actually asking more about the after effect of the medicine, like maybe 2 days after antibiotic completion. Might there still be after effects of the antibiotic?

I wouldn't be able to answer that as it varies with each type of antibiotic and bird. It gets really complicated from someone who isn't trained in pharmacology and parrots. Best bet would be to check with your vet. We are just bird owners and every variable can be different. :cool:

It could be, I never used that medication with my conure. I'd check with your vet. I would recommend using probiotics regardless of the poops.

Baytril and other antibiotics can reduce the natural flora in birds gastrointestinal system. I use HealthyGut Avian Probiotic.

Some people use bene-bac plus bird, but that's a gel and my bird doesn't like it.

Regardless check with your vet about the stools since there was a stool issue (different) to start.
