deworming

  1. Non Pigeon/Dove Pet Bird Discussions
    Hi Everyone, Anyone have information on deworming a pet starling using Quest (moxidectin 2%)? I have a 8 year old pet European starling which I have not dewormed ever. She's lived all by herself her entire life and is highly imprinted on me. I noticed in the past couple of weeks that has...
