    At several birds that I housed recently (with the cold season four of the birds born at me that had left the house months ago have returned, plus some new rescues) I noticed some reddish droppings. At one bird, the droppings were packed with tens of hairworms around 4 mm long. I also noticed...

    I would just like to know what everyone's opinions are on using Ivermectin Pour On For Cattle. How does everyone administer theirs? Topically, on the skin of the neck with an eyedropper? Down the throat with an eyedropper? How many drops would you recommend for effective removal of parasites and...

    I just gave my bird archimedes his/her ivermectin treatment, and it said 2 drops, but I may have accidentally done 4(possibly 5 or 6 but I'm doubtful), and now I'm really worried, so I took them into the shower and got them washed hoping this would wash away or water down the treatment, any...

    I purchased Ivermectin 1% injectable to dewormer my pigeons. Does anyone know the oral dosage and do I need to do a 2nd treatment in a week or so? I would appreciate any info anyone has on this subject. Also I have a pair with eggs, is it safe to dewormer them at this time?

    Hello, I have a question about treating pigeons with ivermectin using pills called 'avio ekto endo' that I got from Jedd's here. I've read in multiple places that the dosage of ivermectin for pigeons is: .5-1mg ivermectin / kg bird weight The directions on the bottle of avio ekto endo say to...

  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey All I need to make a decision ASAP. If you might remember, I mentioned about finding a pigeon "Frosty". I've been doing a lot of calling around locally to figure out what our options are. She clearly has feather lice, and the vets around here charge a fair bit for treatments. The...

    Okay, I keep reading threads but it is still not clear to me. Many say "give 2 or 3 drops" but that is not what I'd call accurate. I need to do weight conversion for a dove so I can't use that. And the other threads are very confusing! lol. I have done other research and found the dosage for...

    I have a question about ivermectin. I have half a flask of ivermectin that says "for use subcutaneously in bovines". However, I'm using it orally for a dog with demodex mange (lol). A vet told me I could use that. Do you think I could worm my dove with it when he's old enough, too? I was...

    I am having no success eradicating a helminthic infection in a really neat feral pigeon I brought in last month. It seems no matter what dewormer I throw at it, the bird keeps passing worm eggs in his stool (detected via fecal wet mounts under microscopic exam). They are NOT tapeworms. I...

    Has anyone ever given injections of Ivermectin to their birds as a wormer or for killing parasites? Or does anyone know what the proper dosage would be? I ask because I can get Ivermectin a lot cheaper than having to order wormers from Foys. I have been searching for a table or any information...

    Hi everyone! I have a blind Senegal dove and a new canary, I'm worried of being caught unaware with any illnesses especially since I'm in a country where there aren't any avian vets I know of. I know canaries can develop scaly foot and faces and I'm concerned about any parasites. I've been...
