I have a question about Bird, my female bird african grey parrot

My parrot is dying (probably).
She's not eating, weak and her rubbish is white.
I went her to a vet and he told me that she had a 'cold' and he describe me a medication to give her, it was vitamins and a antibiotic in water I believe.
But nothing happened!
Now it's her fourth day suffering from her unknown illness.

Good morning,

Due to such unspecific signs, it is difficult to make a diagnosis without assessing Bird or testing her. An important first step is to deworm the bird if it has not been done recently, since numerous parasites can affect the digestive system by altering the feces. In respect of antibiotics, 4 days may be insufficient time, since a minimum treatment of 10 days is necessary. There is also the possibility of administering the antibiotic by other routes, such as the injectable for the most severe cases. If you have not eaten for days and show great weakness, it may be necessary to administer fluid therapy. Try to keep it in a place without drafts and provide heat, either by covering it or with an infrared heat lamp. I recommend taking Bird back to the vet, if possible to a bird or exotic specialist, so that he can make a more thorough assessment.
