bacterial infection

  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I found a pigeon which has some sort of bacterial infection. I say this because she is quite thin and because of the smell in the poops. I have had six cases in the past where the poops smelt exactly like this. In those cases I gave synulox/clavamox and they all survived. The difference this...

    I have a 4 day old squab that is eating and eliminating well, but has a big crop. What can I do? He does not seem bothered by it, but I was told that I should not feed him unless it is emply. If I waited for it to empty, he will surely die. I did give him apple cider vigenar and Pedialyte...

    I have seen many posts about PMV and I find it very disturbing that so many are being diagnosed with this virus when I believe that it is entirely possible that some of these birds merely have a vitamin B deficiency. The symptoms are the same. The nervous system is affected and tremors, loss of...

    Hello all, My pet pigeon was fine and flying around today at midday. By this afternoon, she was vomiting and wouldn't eat any seeds....not even a single sunflower seed. She just put it in her beak, and then dropped it back into my hand. What could have made her sick so suddenly? She didn't...

    I had one bird die from what must have been young bird sickness. Now her brother must have it. From what I have read there is no cure as it is probably a viral (adenovirus or circovirus) disease. The viruses supress the young bird's (ie. not fully developed) immune system. Various bacterial...

    Hello everyone. I need some advice. I have a small ringneck dove aside from my 2 pigeons. The dove is 4 years old. The dove stays in a completely different room than the pigeons, they have no contact. Anyway, my dove has been sounding and acting different. He seems like he's cold a lot...

    I am new to this site and am looking for help with a baby voorburg. His parents I believe were shot out of the sky and I am now his mother. He is a month old now. The first two days were the toughest because of hand feeding, Then he started eating and drinking on his own, and really had quite a...

    I went in to check on my supposedly PMV pigeon this morning and his face was wet. When I picked him up I noticed that liquid was coming out of his nose/mouth. It smells sour, and when I offered him some water, I noticed that when his beak went in to get some, the liquid that came off his beak...

    I wrote in a couple of weeks ago about a baby pigeon I was raising who had a swollen crop. I got lots of great advice, thank you everyone. My vet sent me Itraconozole for what I suspected was yeast. It was, and he is now yeast free. Had to take him to the vet a few days later though as his crop...

    Hey Ok, this pigeon that I found is twisting his head completely around, I saw pictures from Amyable, that she is dealing with a similar situation, so maybe she can reply to this as well. Anyway, I was feeding him today, and I started feeling around his neck and I think there is a big bump on...

    ok, I searched other threads, and saw some stuff about blech, nothing specific to PMV though. I'm pretty sure, almost positive, the one i got a week ago has PMV, now the one that was in a box next to him is showing sure signs of PMV. You see, i do quarantine them, but the BEST i can do with...

    I just got in from my nightly rounds through my lofts.... I knew something was wrong when I hit the breeding section. The black checker splash I picked up a month or so ago, as I walked into the loft him breathing. So I picked him up and held him, his pulse was so fast that I couldn't count even...
