my location is Tanzania, I have more than 50 birds, parrot beak aseels, but up to know i dont have the right drugs to cure the said diseases.Hi, welcome to BYC!
Sorry to hear about your issue and for your losses.
From the research I did... looks like it is caused by Salmonella Gallinarum, a gram negative bacteria. So make sure you are using the correct antibiotic for gram negative strains and not gram positive. Sorry, I am unfamiliar with them.
Seems as though the BEST way to treat is to depopulate ANY who test positive via the standard serological test for Pollorum. Or if it were me... I would depopulate the WHOLE flock!
And start over with known clean birds.
From Merck, a leader in avian medicinal and health stuff...
"Treatment of infected flocks to alleviate the perpetuation of the carrier state is not recommended."
What is your location? How many birds have ya got? This is a disease that passes through eggs to chicks so any you hatch may be infected from birth. Wish I could make a better suggestion... but depopulate would be my suggestion to someone I considered a friend.
As far as I can tell, it cannot be cured without depopulation.my location is Tanzania, I have more than 50 birds, parrot beak aseels, but up to know i dont have the right drugs to cure the said diseases.
