Hi there, asking on behalf of a friend. She is located in a country with very little veterinary assistance.

She has a sick young pigeon with pox.

I looked online and found that this condition responds well to Amoxicillin + Clavulanic acid, according to several breeders, so she went ahead and bought some Juroclav 50mg (see photograph.)

She is now wondering about dose and administration- something we have not been informed about. Does anyone have a recommendation here?

Additional advice on pox is also welcome. Her bird is a squeaker about 5 weeks old.

Many thanks

Antibiotics won't cure pox. She should rather concentrate on boosting him with vitamins, probiotics and regular apple cider vinegar in the drinking water. They can get secondary infections cause the immunity is down and then antibiotics will be needed. Canker often goes together with pox.

Does he have any growths inside the beak? Is he eating by himself or is she handfeeding him?
