Hi,

I see these ring like type in squabs, and the other I hope is pigeon pox.

I gave Enroflaxin for it hoping to be paratyphoid, Am I rite.? or

Whats it is & what medication should I follow. Will it spread to other squabs?

Thanks.
Diwa

Pox. Separate it from the others and don't give it any more medicine. You can treat for canker just in case it gets a secondary infection but otherwise antibiotics will only make it harder on the bird because pox is a virus. Probiotics are a good idea as well as apple cider vinegar.

Also worth mentioning...the baby will heal with supportive care; the virus will shed by itself...but you need to keep her/him in a warm place and will have to handfeed.

Also, keep an eye out on your other Pigeons inn case you see the same symptoms in others.

Thanks, so i will give flagyl. Relived to know its pox and not paratyphoid, We have a lot of mosquito and this is the problem.
Hope the squabs will be fine in a week or 2,
