More pigeon diseases
Worms are gross, although our feathered friends think they are delicious. However, some worms are reversed on the food chain and they eat pigeons, from the inside! Pigeons are commonly infected by Roundworms, Hairworms, Gapeworms or Tapeworms. Sometimes it’s no problem. Eggs might not hatch or the worms leave the body the natural way.
In some cases, however, the worms are staying. That’s bad, because it greatly impacts the pigeons health! They have trouble performing, their appetite decreases and it may cause diarrhea. What’s bad is that it makes the pigeon more vulnerable to other diseases.
Fortunately, worms can be treated as well. We have developed ‘Worm-Tabs’, that battles all dangerous worms.
MAIN CAUSES: This (annoying) pigeon disease is caused by infected food, infected droppings of other animals and from eating insects.
SYMPTOMS: Diarrhea, worms in dropping, weight loss, decreased performance, unhealthy and weak look.
MAIN CURE: Worm-Tab is a tablet cure that will remove the aforementioned worms from the pigeons’ body.
This pigeon disease is different and dangerous. The ‘Parrot Fever’ can also be caught by humans because it’s zoonotic, so take measures when you find ornithosis in your colony. In fact, in the past people have died from this disease.
Ornithosis also affects the respiratory tract, making it hard to breathe for the pigeon. It affects the endurance and strength, which results in a bad performance.
Since it’s a bacterial disease, ornithosis can be treated well if diagnosed on time. Our Myco-Orni-Mix battles the bacteria.
MAIN CAUSES: It can be spread via air, if urine- or feces particles are aerosolized and breathed in by humans or animals. Also beak to beak contact can spread the disease. Any pigeon infected must be quarantined immediately to prevent spreading.
SYMPTOMS: diarrhea, nasal dropping, low appetite, weird breathing sounds, shedding and ruffled looks.
MAIN CURE: Myco-Orni-Mix is a well designed medicine containing a broad spectrum antibiotic, which has a synergistic effect. It has additional minerals and vitamins to strengthen the pigeon’s body during application.
Mycoplasmosis is an infection of the bonchia and comes in several types. It is usually a combination of bacteria and viruses, which makes it dangerous. Mycoplasmosis on its own might be a harmless pigeon disease.
Fortunately there are some treatments to this pigeon disease. We recommend Travi-Allicin-Plus.
MAIN CAUSES: Infected feed, drinking water, feces and equipment.
SYMPTOMS: Nasal discharges, decreased performance, unwillingness to fly, unusual flying movements, wheezing sound and throat inflammation.
MAIN CURE: Travi-Allicin-Plus not only battles Mycoplasmosis. Since Mycoplasmosis decreases the immune system, the pigeon is vulnerable for many additional diseases. That’s why we wanted to develop a product that also protects the pigeon during the healing period. Travi-Allicin-Plus provides this protection against salmonellis, colibacillosis and necrotic enteritis.
