Another Lost Budgie

Recommended Posts

My neighbor just found him in his garden eating grasses...

Seeing resemblance from my bird he thought it was mine...

 

Upon seeing the bird, she was a young hen with scaly face and can't even fly high...

She won't even reach 6 feet flying to escape...

 

And we agreed that I'll just adopt her and started her treatment...

 

I had her in a separated though small cage to avoid infection reaching my other birds....

 

What I'm using is Permethrin as a shampoo....

Coz I can't find any ivermectin here..

 

has anyone tried permethrin with scaly face???

doing research, I read it was as effective as ivermectin but less toxic even to human....

 

should I wait 2 weeks or 1 week will do to re apply the treatment???

how long before I can see the medication's effect on her???

what can I do if I can't see any improvement on her condition???

 

here are her pictures...

she is quite dreadful and awful...

and she is also showing signs of molting feathers in her head....

sorry about the quality of the pics, she actually looks better in these picture than actual...

by the way, despite her scaly face and molting...

 

I found her other vitals to be good...

 

she is eating fine, drinking enough, and trying to hard that she can lift her small cage (12x12x12 inches)...

 

and she has the strongest bite a ever had from a budgie...

I now found Ivermectin...

Its a injectable solution of 1% in a 2ml vial...

 

Should I use it as a drop on behind her head??

Should I dilute it further with water???

 

I read some using it pure at 1% and other said dilute it to another 19 part of water....

 

I really appreciate any help from this forum....

 

Thanks and God bless us all....

HI, she looks to be in pretty good condition even if she has scaly face.

I'm not sure about the Ivomectin you have, we use 1 drop behind head.

You can try vaseline over the scaly face. It smothers the little mites that cause it. :rolleyes:
