Doxycycline is an over the counter med for non-specific bacteria used for birds and some other animals. I am guessing you purchased it through a pet store or animal supply store without a prescription, if I am incorrect please tell me. I would suggest taking your bird to an avian vet. The runny nose can be quite dangerous and can be a symptom of a serious respiratory infection even with no other real symptoms. Without getting an actual avian vet to check out your TAG you will not know how serious this is. Rather than keeping spending money on over the counter meds which DO NOT work you can spend the amount on a vet and actually get a real working treatment for your bird. If you did see a vet was it an actual avian vet and did they do a full check (blood, gram stain, etc) to make sure the runny nose was not just a sign of something more serious? If you did see a vet please tell me what the vet actually said was wrong with your bird and maybe we can offer more help! Thanks
