Another good all round formulary with good supplementary information:
*Pull grit when administering medicines in the Tetracycline family (Doxycycline, Teramycin, etc.) and in the Fluoroquinlone family http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categor...ne_antibiotics) as the calcium will bind with the antibiotic rendering its antimicrobial action useless.
*Baytril may be given to babies as studies done on puppies don't apply to avian species according to Medical Center for Birds and many other avian vets.
*Keep mixtures and compounded meds refrigerated as they degrade rapidly.
*Change water daily when dosing through water.
“I have been feeding pigeons, thousands of them for years. But there was one, a beautiful bird, pure white with light grey tips on its wings; that one was different. It was a female. I had only to wish and call her and she would come flying to me.
I loved that pigeon as a man loves a women, and she loved me. As long as I had her, there was a purpose to my life.” Nikola Tesla
