  1. Illnesses & Health Issues - Identify & Treat
    Hello everyone, I am a new pigeon owner, and I welcomed my 5 week old fancy pigeon, Rocky to my home. He appeared to be doing well and adapting to his new environment in a positive manner. I then started noticing how his head started to lean a little to one side. The next couple days, all of a...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello :) My pigeons were vaccinated around this time last year against PMV. The vet did not say anything about booster shots, and reading online I saw conflicting information - some sources say they need a booster every 12 months, while other sources say nothing about boosters at all. May...
  3. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I recently rescued a wobbly, circling, non-flying pigeon and am keeping it in a cage in my backyard, monitoring its symptoms. I believe it may have Paramyxovirus,as those sure are the symptoms. He's been doing well for the last three weeks, though still a little off-balance. I hope to release...

    I have a flock of barn doves (perhaps 50) on my little 5-acre farm. On 9/9/19 I found a down dove, neurological symptoms, floppy, head bobbing. Of course I isolated it right away. Still tried to eat and drink. It died on 9/14. On 9/13, before it died, I discovered another one a little...

  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey everyone, So, no experience with birds whatsoever, but I live by the beach in Brazil and just found an injured pigeon (actually, she found me :p). There doesn't seem to be any experts in birds in my city and most don't even know how to diagnose a bird, but one of them gave her...

    I got two rescue pigeons from a friend who couldn't take care of them. One of them is a PMV survivor and has been laying eggs. My friend said she's never laid eggs before. I'm in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. She's up to two eggs which I've left in her box. I'm really worried about the symptoms...
  9. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    I rescued a pmv pigeon in the city today who was probably in the worst area of the city you could be in. I don't have the means to take care of him (my living place wont allow it), for the time being I am hiding him but I can't do that for very long as I have commitments (studying and working)...

    I returned from work to find a poorly pigeon outside but nothing obviously wrong with it other than looking sick (puffed up and neck withdrawn into body). I kept an eye on it and then it started showing neuralogical issues (spinning and falling over in the process, head at strange angle, moving...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, Apologies for posting in two different sections of the forum. I am in Toronto, Canada, and have rescued a pigeon that appears to have PMV. The local animal rescues have advised for it to be euthanized, as they unfortunately cannot take it in. Having read of success stories of pigeons with...
  12. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi, I have rescued a pigeon that appears to have PMV. The local animal rescues have advised for it to be euthanized, as they unfortunately cannot take it in. Having read of success stories of pigeons with PMV having been rehabilitated when cared for, I was wondering whether anyone would be able...

    Hi, I’m new to these forums and desperately needing some help! A few days ago I found a spotted turtle dove being attacked by a magpie. After scaring off the magpie, the dove wouldn’t move so I gently picked him up and took him home (I have rescued doves and pigeons after crow and magpie...
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all! My kid and I were walking home and found a pigeon in a snow storm that couldn't fly. My kiddo asked if we could help it, so I picked it up and took it inside. I picked it up pretty easily, and it clearly couldn't fly. I googled a bit, and am pretty sure it has PMV. Its initial poo was...

    Hello All, I was wondering if any one had any experience with pigeons recoving from PMV? I have 6 that I put aside that are showing the classic next twisting and loss of balance from PMV. These all young birds my older birds where vaccinated last year and seem fine thank god. From what I read...

    Now that intentional vaccines are banned and there are no longer a domestic vaccine what are you guys using? I am skeptical of the Lasota vaccine that goes in the water that foys and segals are selling. Thanks

    I have an adult PMV rescue. I've had her/him for about seven months. When she was very sick she was very cuddly and loved to stretch out in my hand. Now she bites. It is not a mere peck it is a hold and squeeze as hard as possible. I've tried lots of different ways of cuddling her to break...
  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Wasn't sure whether to start a new thread or continue the old. So I started new. So ...His head is almost always tilted to the right and he is still having "fits" every so often when he starts walking around in circles (sometimes very quickly) and may suddenly "star=gaze" or almost even turn...
  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    EDIT: Palomacy put my friend in touch with a WildCare staffer who was able to take the bird. All's well. My friend found a feral pigeon in Oakland, CA which is either sick (possibly PMV) or injured (head injury?). Here's her initial description: It's walking in circles, tried to fly into a...
  20. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, I found a pigeon on my way home yesterday. It's large and fairly active, but is displaying head-bobbing/twitching behavior which looks like PMV. Further, one of his feet has a thin strand wrapped around. The foot appears to have already lost a toe (I'm not sure if this was recent) and...
