You will have to talk to your vet to see if they will give you that antibiotic. 

We made an appointment with the closest exotics/avian vet.  Unfortunately since she's the closest, she has lots of patients and can't see us until next week.  Unfortunately I don't have time or money to be able to go in as an emergency.  In the meantime we'll be soaking and vetericyn-ing her foot.  She is eating and drinking water though, pooping normal.  So at least it hasn't gotten tooooooo too serious.  I hope it stays that way!

Glad you can take her in. Call them back and ask them to call you if they have any cancellations.
