Is De-Worming Really Necesary?


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine came over for a visit from another state, and told me if ive ever de-worm my budgies, tiels and love birds, because i have them out on my porch and they can catch worms from the wild birds getting close to their cages to eat the seeds that fall out onto the floor, she breeds Bourke's and says she de-worms all her birds about every six months to a yr because her avian vet gave her that recommendation ,what do all you guys think?( sorry if i posted this under the wrong section)

Yes I do mine every 3 months with Moxidectin in the water.

It not only helps with worming it also does mites & lice.

I use Ivomectin every 3 months, 1 drop behind head (may be called something else in the U.States). If your birds come in close contact with wild birds I think it would be wise to worm them. Ivomectin also helps with mites etc as well as various worms.
