My budgie has swollen belly around vent

My budgie suddenly has swelling around vent area and red inflammation on the left side of her belly behind her leg with loose stool and yellowish urine the vet said it’s bacterial infection and gave her antibiotics and vitamins but l don’t think it’s only infection because her stomach has been big for a while before but l thought she was about to lay eggs and her chest is thin but she was eating and playing there is no other avian vet in my town and while the treatment she stops eating well and starts having seizures he said it’s because she has gotten weak please what could that be it happened suddenly



Unfortunately we can’t begin to speculate on what is going on here. There are many possible causes that the Vet would have to rule out.

Take care,
