Yeast Infection in Birds



The veterinarian will examine and test the bird in order to prescribe the appropriate medication. Baby birds, however, should be fed small amounts of food to empty their crop more often, and to control the Candidiasis infection.




Regular cleaning and disinfecting of the cage, nest box, and utensils are essential in preventing Candidiasis infection in your bird.
