My Birds Keep Getting Sick.


Recommended Posts

Treatment is going pretty well, I haven't changed their diet, just seed and corn. All the birds are looking okay so far :huh:.
Thanks all for your advice.I found an avian vet and brought in two of my sick birds. The vet did a fecal test and we will probably get results tomorrow. The vet believes that my birds have Psittacosis, and she gave me treatment to treat my entire flock for six weeks. She also told me that I need to improve my birds diet as they're not getting enough fruit and vegetables.
You may have been given doxyvet or psittavet to treat your birds. A powder that goes in their water ? Its a six week treatment, but as Liv says not fruit and vegies or other water sources whilst on those meds. The water with meds in it has to be fresh daily too...it goes off very fast and cannot be in the sunlight.
Yep it is Psittavet, and I change it every morning, thanks :D.

Little one....corn is a vegetable. No vegies when on doxy treatment :tut_tut:

Good to hear and I agree with Neat on taking 1 back to get retested that is important.

I had a problem with canker when it rained and the aviary floor got wet and the birds were eating wet seed that had fallen out of their dishes onto the floor. I solved that problem with a couple of courses of ronivet and a suspended aviary.
