Conjunctivitis in Starling
Well here we go again this time not me but my other rehabber friend. She has 2 birds one being a Starling and the other being a fledgling House finch I think she said it was no wait a sparrow. Anyways here in Michigan we are told that if we get a bird in with that to bring it in to be put down well she said there has to be something out there to help it. Is there? The vet here says it cost too much to treat the bird which I find to be a bunch of bull pucky. Can anyone suggest something that she could get her hands on quickly? The starling is in bad shape eyes crusted over and very thin. The sparrow baby isn't as bad. Told her for now to take and keep washing the eyes out with warm water till I can get some advice so they don't crust over. I also told her to keep them away from other birds and wash her hands well. The Ex works with eyes and is coming up from PA tomorrow and I am going to ask him to bring some meds up that are coming up to expiring soon, I don't know if he will or not he can be nice one minute and a total ass the next. Is there something we can get and keep on hand for this. I know a 1/2 ounce cost $60.00.
They are not rats with wings and they feel pain like you and me. Save our beloved Pigeons without people like us their numbers would be less. God Bless to Pigeon Lovers
