    Can you give some background info--how old, did you recently get him or add a new bird that could have been a carrier of a respiratory disease? Could he have something stuck in his throat? Does he have other respiratory symptoms such as eye or nasal drainage, swelling around an eye, or cough/sneeze? Some respiratory diseases can cause wheezing, and they may be bacterial, viral, or fungal. Infectious bronchitis, mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG or CRD,) ILT, and coryza are some of the common ones. Antibiotics such as Tylan 50 injection may be used to treat or prevent bacterial secondary infections.
