    So I frequently (basically daily) feed the pigeons black oil sunflower seeds and bird feed outside my window on the perch. I noticed that one bird was pecking at the food but a closer look shows that it was dropping each and every seed. Its mouth is also open and won’t close at all. I see wounds...

    Hello I'm from India and today I noticed one baby pigeon was panting and I check him. He loosed on weight, not eating at all.. I took him out from his parents but when I tried to feed him I saw yellowish canker. I just don't get the right dosage for metronidazole for baby pigeons.. What should I...

    I found a seagull in Culver City, California, along La Ballona Creek this morning. I think that the bird might have trichomoniasis (canker). Can anyone determine from the pictures whether it is canker?

    Hi everyone. My beloved bird of about 9 years is very ill. I have taken her to the vet three times now, but there are no avian specialists near me. She was initially on 50mg Noroclav tablets 3x a day for 6 days to treat general bacteria infections such as e.coli. These were stopped on Friday...

    Hi, I’ve had my pigeon almost 6 yrs, he’s a rescue and I treated him for Canker when he was a baby with metronidazole and he recovered and has never been sick again.

    Hi everyone! Remember my Butterfly bird, from this post? Well, she's back... although technically she didn't really go far. I set her free a couple of weeks ago, after dosing her up for a week or so with the vitamin supplement I ordered (Vetafarm Multivet with moulting aid) - she was so...

    There was a pigeon family who made their nest in one corner of my kitchen (where I keep my mop) and since I could no longer use the mop without driving them away, I made a cardboard box nest for them at another location near my kitchen window. Soon another family requested accommodation and I...

    Hey folks, this bird started hanging around the porch all day, fluffed, getting weaker by the day. (you can see how she's raising her forehead feathers). Finally grabbed her, prominent keel, weight 222 grams. The single dropping (with forefinger) is from yesterday. Oddly, her mouth and throat...

    Hi all, I hope everyone is doing well. I've been overwhelmed with work, which caused me to visit less often then I'd like. To the point: I've spotted a pigeon in the flock I'm feeding with yellow growths in its mouth and some yellow liquid around the beak and I'm guessing it's canker. I have...

    I have picked up a baby pigeon in very bad shape from the street. A side of his face looks covered by some yellow stuff - it's not pox, I'm not sure in canker can cover the eyes, or he has been pecked/hit by something. He does have a lot of canker in his beak/throat - I need to push the food...
