This has some interesting drug info for pigeons:


Next time your vet is bored, ask her to review it and comment on it for you. What I found interesting is the mention of using Tylan with the other drugs for better efficacy.

Note that Safeguard and Valbazen are not mentioned... I believe that both have caused problems in pigeons and doves.

Tetramyacine or oxytetramyacine have worked very well for me, particularly in strong does through drinking water. Luckily I've only had to use them sparingly in the past.

Tetracycline and Oxytetracycline are probably good ones to use if you can't get something like Baytril.

This shows the bacteria that @KsKingBee was dealing with a few months ago and they drugs that would treat them.

The list of what worked for me is pretty short. When I was having my worst problem last spring it turned out to be a secondary infection caused by improper worming. I did the three ml per gallon as was frequently recommended and that did not work. The worms flourished and the birds got sick, and started showing respiratory problems. At first the vet wanted to save the 'Big Gun' Baytril for when everything else did not work so we ramped up until we found the real problem causing it all.

In the end when the worming was done properly the birds responded and are in general good health. My interest here is when not trying to treat a severe problem, what works for you? and how do you use it?

This testing was done before the root of the problem was found but was very useful in isolating what the two bacteria were susceptible to. When looking at the lists the drugs tested on the bacteria is on the left and the bacteria is on the top. In front of the numbers is either a R or S that stands for resistant or susceptible. If the drug had a S in front of the numbers it means that it worked on that bacteria. If it had a R it did not. So in the end there were three or four drugs that worked on both of those bacteria.

So let me ask this, what diseases are peafowl most likely to get and what antibiotics will treat them? What I should do is go through my email and find my necropsy reports so everyone can see the bacteria that were found and what antibiotics the bacteria were sensitive to.
