    So I need some medicine that is good for all birds. Avian probiotic, ointments, etc. For geese, ducks, seagulls, etc. Anyone have any suggestions. Note: I need it to be good for seagulls too. I already have Tylan 50 as an antibiotic

    Vet wrap and paper tape neither stick to feathers. No stick gauze. Veterycin spray for wounds an infections. Triple antibiotic, @casportpony would rec Baytril as another antibiotic. Probiotics can be for birds or humans

    Gro2Max is a great probiotic that should be good for most avian species, especially galliformes. Pet stores also carry Bene-bac powder that may be better for a wider variety of species.
    Nutri-Drench is a great blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and quick energy. They make one for poultry and other formulations for several species of mammals.

    I only rehabilitate them, the parents being their babies once they are old enough to fly. Right now I have one that is still immature with a broken wing and a separated tendon in the same wing.
