Have you ever wanted medicate a small chick or pigeon, but all your medications were in pill form and far too big to use on such a small bird? ? If so, this thread will teach you how to make your own compounded solutions.

Items needed:
  • Mortar and pestle
  • Suspension Syrup
  • Syringe


This is the mortar and pestle I use


This is the suspension syrup I use:


Treating pigeons for canker with metronidazole is almost impossible to do safely with pills, so what I do is take two of my 400 mg metronidazole tablets, grind them up and add 20 ml of the ORA-Plus Syrup to the powder. That gives me 20 ml of suspension with 800 mg of metronidazole, or 40 mg/ml.

Thanks for sharing, this could come in handy even for adult poultry.
