  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi everyone. I rescued a pigeon last week. She is a juvenile and I am assuming she got kicked out of the nest following heavy canker infestation. When I got her she was quite heavy (the parents had been feeding her well) but her mouth was open because of a huge white cheesy lump. I started her...

    This is the thread that has the back story. I had our juvie population of 4 reduced to 1 from canker infections. I made mistake of bringing in a new squab to the caged area where 4 youngsters are, without quarantine. It went badly, I learned a hard painful sad lesson. Cpl days after the 3rd one...

    I noticed one of the pigeons at the park was looking rough. It was puffed up and seemed reluctant to fly. It was apparent that one side of the crop was swollen. I brought it home and noticed it was extremely underweight. I started canker treatment immediately (metronidazole is all I have access...

One is doing well and weighs 150g and the other is 130g. I have been feeding them for the last two days and at the time the mother left them the...

    About one month ago I relocated my rock dove flock long-distance to a new loft. All birds are indoor kept — no one has flown outside for the past five years. I just discovered that one of my girls has a huge canker growth on the back of her throat. The stress of the move likely contributed to...

    Hi everyone, My African collared dove is sick and I can’t work out what the problem is. Let me begin by saying there are no avian vets close to me, the nearest I have found is 150km and I don’t have a car. When I returned home Wednesday afternoon (2 days ago), I found her sitting much more...
  7. Emergency Resources & Assistance
    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...

    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. I recently got him a female mate in December and she died early March suddenly. I took her to an emergency vet and she died there...

    Hi everyone, I don’t have any ‘before‘ photos of this guy, unfortunately, but I’ve had him for about a week... he had what I’m pretty sure was canker, causing heaps of swelling on one side of his beak, plus some nasty, white, smelly stuff inside the front, bottom of his mouth, for which I began...

  14. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    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...

    Hi Everyone! My name is Joey - I'm British and live in Porcia, Northern Italy. Last week I found a fledgling pigeon really suffering with Pox and had been attacked by what I suspect was the neighborhood cats - she found shelter under my veranda and didn't move when I approached. On closer...
