Need advice on probiotics for my 5 month old cockatiel.

Has anyone used Flora Bird probiotics by vital planet? It’s GMO Free, Vegan, and gluten-free. I’m thinking about starting my cockatiel on it. She had an upper respiratory infection about 4 weeks ago and the vet gave her 2 antibiotic injections over the course of 2 weeks. Also had me start her on a daily multi vitamin regiment, so I have her on Lafaber’s Avi-Era powdered bird vitamins. She is doing much better, doesn’t have a runny nose any more however still dry sneezing from time to time and every once in a while she has runny poops. Otherwise she seems to be healthy and happy… eating good, and preening herself and very active. Are probiotics good for cockatiel’s? I’m a fairly new bird mom and I don’t want to do anything that would harm her! Also how often should you give probiotics to them?

I'll always recommend using probiotics after any course of antibiotics because they can kill off the gut flora that's essential for a bird's health. Follow the instructions on the pack or on the manufacturers website.
