Hello
I learned Tuesday that my 9 month old African Grey has 90% negetive bacteria in her feces and crop. She also has a mild yeast infection. She put my Grey on Nystatin for the yeast infection and Sulfamethoxazole Susp. She has to take these medicines every 12 hours for 14 days. I am very scared folks. I don't know what I would do without her. The strange thing is she doesn't show any signs of illness. She isn't losing weight, she has no diarea, she eats ALOT (vegtables, fruits, Harrison's pellets, Zupreem fruity blend and seed), shes drinking water, she playing all the time, she is chirping and making a lot of noise, she loves for me to handle her, and so on.

Do you think there is something seriously wrong with this bird? Has any other Grey owner experienced this?
I haven't recieved her blood test results but I see nothing odd about her feces except a slight odor. I heard that is she had a kidney or liver infection you would see evidence in her poop.

Can you help? Can we talk about this?
Nardo

All birds have some bacteria in their gut. This is normal. An experienced avian vet's call should be, determining what is normal and what might be harmful. The second thing, if not normal, finding the cause, to prevent this from reoccurring. It's best to discuss your concerns with your vet. A good doctor or vet will work in partnership with you. Write down all your concerns, and don't be afraid to ask questions.
Many hand fed babies get yeast infections. Nystatin is a pretty safe drug.
To me, it doesn't sound serious, but I'm not a vet. Good luck.
