    Hi! I'll try to keep things short: I'm currently trying to save a baby pigeon. I got the little guy two days ago, together with his sibling. Both were in a pretty bad shape. The sibling, who was the bigger one but obviously sick, died a few hours later. The other one seems perfectly healthy, I...

    Hi all, On Sunday, December 7, I found a feral pigeon drinking from a puddle of water in a bus lane. She didn't move out of the way of oncoming traffic and seemed weak so I picked her up and brought her home. She has very watery poop (clear water with green, wormy feces isolated in the water)...

    I didnt realize until now that the fact that this baby is only 1/5 the size of his brother or sister (see photo for comparison) must have been caused by a disease and I didn't check him. Now, when I looked at him, he breaths with a cracking sound, the tail is bobbing and the back is swollen...

    Hey guys, So relating to my other post about my wheezing bird who is mouth breathing pretty rapidly. The condition does seem to have improved a little bit but its still very evident so I think he may have gotten aspiration pneumonia of his vomit so I ordered some amoxicillin to help treat any...

    What you think? There are not other symptoms, like wheezing, sneezing, rattling, labored breathing, mouth smelling, mouth deposits etc. I already gave Doxycyline but I also have Tylosin.

    Alright, so I'm at a point in my life where I can no longer care for my ringneck dove. I work two jobs and have almost 0 time before I go to bed (at 1am) to give him any attention. He's stopped cooing and appears to have some sort of respiratory infection; reason I feel this is the case is...

    I have a pair of King pigeons. They just became adult. They have had loose droppings for quite a while and got better when ACV was given and then as soon as ACV was stopped the loose droppings continued. 2 days back i noticed the male bird panting during the afternoon. I also noticed a lot of...

    Hi all -- Seems like not very many people post on this board anymore -- I'd been away from the boards for quite a while myself. If you don't mind taking a look, I posted a thread over on the sick and injured forum -- I picked up a truly tough rehab a few days ago, and I think I have a handle...

    respiratory infection tests? Phoebe (back home a week post surgery) has developed mild noisy breathing at certain times over the past four days (when giving her medicine; usually early AM). This becomes less pronounced as the day goes on. We have stopped her medicine (meloxicam) to make sure she...
