Before deciding on gapeworms as the problem do a simple check and affirm that is what it is. A cotton swab put down the trachea and twisting upward as you pull it out will tell you if it really is gapes. I am betting you have the onset of a respiratory infection and not gapes.

How much down? I couldnt find any vets who check birds but i asked a veterinary store for it and they gave me enrofloxacin injection also are there any other ways to check for gapes?

If your pea has a bacterial respiratory infection then it is safe to inject or give orally.
