Probiotics usage

Does anyone use Benebac or a similar probiotic as a prophylactic for gut health? I've got a new little girl, now about 4 months old. Vet said she had a little gram negative bacteria but didn't think it was enough to worry about but after a 30 day quarantine, I placed her on the cage with my other parrotlet and am paranoid. They are getting along very well but I want to make sure I keep any unhealthy bacteria in check.

I have not used probiotics personally for my parrotlet or had gram negative bacteria, but many people do use probiotics daily for their pet birds. Probiotics are the good, beneficial bacteria for their digestive system. They are recommended to provide after antibiotic use, during stressful situations, during breeding/molting, and after babies fledge.
