    Hi, I am new to this forum, and need as much help as i can. I found a pigeon a week ago near my apartment building, i took it in as it had its eyes closed, looked pretty apathic, it could not eat on its own but it could drink water if it identified it. It had a cough and a sneeze and thought...
  2. Non Pigeon and Dove Bird Emergencies
    Hi All! I'm hoping someone here can offer canker expertise. My Black Rock chicken (Marilyn) has been shaking her head and making strange gurgles in her throat for months now. The problem has come and gone several times as I have tried various things. I treated for canker (first copper...

    I'm putting together a treatment kit for my pigeons. I have flagyl planned for treating canker because it sold at a local store in 500mg tablets for fish. I plan to do flock treatment in water if canker presents. If the parents are getting treated from the water source, will the babies get...

    Please forgive me that I start a new thread about possible treatment of Booboo's bloody stools and fallen head, but the emergency for an advice doesn't allow me to push this question at the end of my first thread describing her bad situation and an urgent answer could make the difference between...

    Hello, I suspect my very dear pigie has canker. Today, I found something which could only be vomit and his droppings suddenly turned yellowish and watery. What is the appropriate Metronidazole dosage for a pigeon? I've seen people mention 50mg per day for 2 days, but that seems excessive...

    Do you remember my two recent cases with pigeons having eye problems. One of them, the small brown pigeon, lost his eye. This morning was still apparently ok but then I gave a dewormer and in the evening I noticed his eye filled with liquid and when I checked, the cornea was gone, the eye was...

    I came home from school today to find a dazed pigeon in my front-yard today. I was able to walk up and pick him up. I have treated wild birds to health in the past, but I believe this one is out of my ability for resources as well as diagnosis. Assumption: Avian Canker aka Trichomoniasis...

    Hi all, My heart is pounding as I'm typing this. I think there is something wrong with Krikky :( For the past few days, I (the human) has been ill - parched throat, fever, giddiness - and Krikky seems ok. But today, I am still unwell and there is a major difference in Krikky's behaviour. She...
  11. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, I wanted to ask you to share some information about Metronidazole. Just some basics. Is it dangerous for pigeons? Should it be used as a last resort? Is it very effective? And can it be introduced to wild birds' feed or water in small quantities? Is using it for prophylaxis a bad idea? And...

    Hello, This concerns a sick pigeon in my feral flock. He is a fully adult pigeon, but a young adult, who has feathered feet and is absolutely tiny – 260 gms. He's not skinny, he's just very small. He’s been with the flock for only a couple of months and was very shy initially, but rightly...

    Ok! So I got the medicine my baby pigeons need. I have 50 mg pills of metronidazole. I also have two syringes with 2 ml of 100 mg/1 ml metronidazole. Now I need to know how much to give them in a dose. Both babies weigh just under 300 grams. I am treating them for pigeon canker. One has the...

    An update on fish medication "Flagyl" aka "Fish-Zole" aka Metronidazole being available - two companies who used to ship this as either "Hex-a-mit" or "Fish-Zole" seem to have either gone out of business or stopped shipping it. The aquarium supply that I finally found it at explained that she...
