While at the local pet store and picking up things for my cockatiel I noticed that amongst the shelves there were a great deal of avian medications etc. Most of these medications treat from finches- Macaw. So, my question is that in an emergency in a small town where chicken specific medications are hard to find could one use normal avian medications etc? I was thinking one could dose according to the size of a bird such as a large chicken would get a little more of the meds than a large Macaw. A Bantam dose would be about the same as say a smaller parrot like an African Grey. Yes I know that Chickens aren't related to pet store birds but, when the medication itself ranges from finches-Macaws which aren't related will they work? Haven't seen this question on here yet. May be silly but, just curious.
