The treatment for trichomoniasis is with metronidazole. There are also other medications like ronidazole and spartix. Metronidazole needs to be given around 50 mg as a single daily dose, for a week or longer if symptoms persist.

How do you know that it's Trich. What are the symptoms?

It is important not to try to remove any of the growth unless you know what you are doing as this can cause a fatal bleed.

The condition is treated with Flagyl Syrup (200mg/5ml) or Metronidazole Oral Suspension (200mg/5ml) - obtained by veterinary prescription and given in a high dose of up to 0.25 mls per 100 grams bodyweight once a day for up to 14 days.. This can be given concurrently with Spartrix, which can be obtained without prescription and given at a dose of 1 tablet once a day for 3 to 5 days. If metronidazole is not available Spartrix can be given alone, but there is a risk of reinfection from within.

So many different illnesses can look somewhat alike. Would it not be helpful to first find out what the birds symptoms are, before suggesting medications?
