I didnt know they did that , thanks for the infoClint,
This is a critical situation as it is likely there is more going on with your bird than canker. Likely your other birds are ill as well. When birds are sick, they pretend to be ok for as long as they can. It is a defense against natural predators. In the wild, a sick bird is easy pickings. When you can tell a bird is sick, IT IS REALLY, REALLY SICK.
If you are going to keep Pigeons you must be prepared with the basic medicines and first aid. It is magical thinking that your birds will never need them. We all need to be prepared.
my other pigeons are great. this bird was isolated from all birds but its mother and father. both mother and father are ok also. i have to leave to go to a funeral right now but i will be back. Im going through a hard time right now and now this happens too. i took some pictures because it just pooped.What I'm waiting to hear is, what are you going to do about all your new information?
I really want your baby to get well and your other pigeons to be ok too.
Spartrix can be substituted for baytril? il see if i can get a ride to the feed store i bought the spartrix from and see if they have tetracycline.That's some pretty nasty yellow urates. And the respiration rate's running around 60. Add the two up and you've probably got a bacterial infection that's causing anemia BUT there can also be inflammation in the lungs as well. Since there are a few different things that will do this, it's a little bit of shooting blind. There are a couple of treatment options that you could try, either one of which may not do any good depending on what it is. If it's one kind of problem, then a Tetracycline which you can get at a feed store will work. If it's the other type of problem, then you'd want to go with Baytril. Metronidazole would be supportive, especially if canker is involved.
