    Hi I have a bird that needs to be treated for Coccidia and I don't really like to use the medicine's that go in the water as you can obviously never be sure that an unwell bird will drink sufficiently to obtain the correct dose. The instructions say: A bird needs to consume 7mg toltrazuril...

    Hi everyone ! Yesterday, I found a sick feral pigeon on a street close to my home, he was just there on the sidewalk, he could not move and looked super tired and poop everywhere! There are a lot of stray cats in the area so i decided to take him. I took him to the first vet who told me that...

    Hi! My pigeon seems to be doing well. I took him to the vet on Wednesday and he was treated for lice (seems to be good). The vet took a stool sample and just called me to say that he wants to de-worm him. I've read some posts on here that you shouldn't de-worm a pigeon below four months of age...

The vet gave me Albon 5% suspension and had me give .2 ml directly in the mouth for 5 days--ONCE per day. The...

    The female sitting the egg on my bed has mild coccidia, her droppings have some light green in them. She is showing no other signs of illness and seems to be sitting the egg quite happily. The thing is, I remember reading somewhere that it is not always necessary to treat coccidia, that it may...
  8. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I recently rescued a baby that was not looking too well. I treated her for coccidia as this seemed to be indicated. Anyway, she was already on the small side, and by the time the coccidia had gone she was extremely thin. She had her chest bone poking out some way and the skin was tight to the...

    Interesting Meds News.....Appartex (aka Clazuril)....&.... Just went to order some on Jedd's...and they say it is no longer available as an OTC. :eek: I rushed over to Foy's and proceeded to buy several boxes, as they still had stock. Dunno if this is true or not...but it has been my go-to...

    btw: Sorry I didn't post this in the 'sick pigeons' forum. I'm so used to posting here on behalf of Chauncey, I spaced. If the message needs to be moved, let me know. We have our existing racing-pigeon rescue, Chauncey. This week, we agreed to help out with another rescued racing pigeon that...
