    My vet instructed me to give .5cc (50mg) per kilogram by mouth, repeat in ten days.

    I'm not sure... I guess it would depend on what type of worms she has and the damage they have done.

    Oh, okay, Thank you! I think she has a severe case.. I started noticing she was acting strange about a week ago. I have never had any of my birds get worms so I didn't know what it was! Then a couple days ago it was REALLY bad! And now today she has been unbalanced and sleep a lot..And SUPER skinny! I feel so bad I didn't find out was wrong sooner! She is started eating a little bit about 4 hours after I gave her the dewormer. But other than that, nothing else has changed. Lets hope she's better by tomorrow or the next day! :)
