    I had a pair of pigeons arrive on the 24th of this month. And out of the box I heard a small sneeze from the female. But they had just been shipped across the country so I chalked it up to a dusty box. But I am still hearing an occasional sneeze. It's not very often. And she's also finishing...

  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I posted in here a little over a week ago about finding a pigeon and being unable to find a vet for her. Long story short, I finally was able to get her to a vet. Her health is actually quite good. She's a little skinny but besides that all she has is some feather lice and some pressure sores...

    Hi everyone, I've had Noa for a couple months now (she's still three months old herself) and during this time she's had four serious infections caused by her own intestinal flora getting out of hand. She was treated with antibiotics each time, I clean her aviary every other day and her bowls...

    Hey Folks, first post here. At some point I'll write up the story of a King I found back in May and only recently recovered from respiratory distress. Anyway I captured some other pigeons and have a series of questions. General ====== Saw a white pigeon (King?) high up in a roost with ferals on...

    My dog, who never bothers DeeDee at all, brought me a tiny whitewing dove today. Unfortunately, she hadn't been quite as gentle with this one as she is with DeeDee (or something else got it and she picked it up...which is a possibility). Anyway, there are a couple of places where the skin is...

    One of my diamond doves (SweetPea) was breathing with his beak open last week so I took him to the vet. At this point he's at day 10 of his antibiotics, which is how long the vet said he should be on them. After about 5 days on the meds, he started cooing again, but yesterday he stopped. His...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Dear Forum members, I am located in Mumbai, India and have just found an adult pigeon that seems to be in poor health and also has a broken/twisted lower leg. I could simply pick it up and now I have it home. He/she is sitting in a cardboard box, I have put on a light bulb to keep it warm...

    Would 4 days on Clavumox (1/4 of a 50mg tablet twice daily) be sufficient enough to get rid of Staphylococcus/Streptococcus completely? It seems like a very short treatment to 'cure' serious recurring Staph. Wonder what you guys think, thank you :)

    Hi, My pigeon has recently come to me and has a broken leg (that's how she became mine) she's been on antibiotics for 3 days - this is the 3rd day. Her poo was harder and browner the first day but getting runnier and greener. Is it a result of antibiotics and possibly the stress of the splint...

    Well my pigeons have been giving symtoyms of Coccidiosis, and e.Coli/Paratyphoid, and I thought that I might as well treat for canker and de-worm them. So what type of medicene do you recommend? Also Im looking for tablets only becuase I don't like the water teatment. I have about 25 adult birds...
  13. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    This morning I looked out my window and saw a neighbor's cat carrying a pigeon in its mouth. My first instinct was to rush outside and get the cat to let the pigeon go. I was able to pick the bird up and placed him in a small cat carrier with newspapers on the bottom. I also put the carrier...
  14. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    Hi pigeon lovers! Please advise! Wood pigeon taken in yesterday. Looks like cattack. Need advice/help re antibiotics. I read in another post advice from Dobato and Feefo re "Amoxicillin, Clavamox, Cipro, Keflex, Azithromycin, Doxycycline....". I can't afford vet and won't be able to afford...

    I am new to pigeon keeping and am in a bit of a quandary. I was looking for Birmingham Rollers and found some on Craigslist. I went to see them and saw they were not good birds and did not want them, but they were living in squaller with a dirt floor, filthy water, and it looked like the coop...

    I found an adult inca dove by my feeder. It has 2 puncture wounds in the breast. I put the bird in a crate with heat, water, and food. It is eating, drinking and pooping. It has no other injuries that I can see. The wounds do not look infected. I am trying to find out if I can get an...

    On several occasions in the past, I came across sick birds where it was clear that they have particular disease and drugs used on them wouldn’t work. I was forced to use different medications to achieve positive results or watch them die, despite all my efforts to help them. As a technical...

    Alright, two questions. First, will ACV mess up the wormer if I mix the two when worming the birds? Second, I know grit (calcium) is to be taken out while medicating with certain antibiotics. Does this go for all antibiotics/medications, or just certain ones/kinds?

    Hello. Something like this was never meant to be my first post, but as luck would have it... I picked up my feral pigeon from the vet today, after he spent the better part of three days at the animal hospital. I was wondering if someone could help me with properly injecting antibiotics into...
