You didn't have a fecal sample read?

I thought I had a few birds with roundworms. I had a fecal read and they had no worms but did have a heavy load of clostrial bacteria.

The vet gave me tetracycline and it solved the problem but the egg withdrawal time was daunting.

No, the vet didn't think she had it and didn't offer to check when I first took her... he just gave me 7 days of another antibiotic - and since I already thought she wouldn't be around much longer - I didn't push it.
