Iodine Deficiency in Birds

Treatment

 

As always, follow your veterinarian's advice to reverse the iodine deficiency. Lugol’s iodine -- one drop for 250 ml (1 cup) of water -- is used often to combat this condition.

 

Prevention

 

Including iodine in your bird's diet will help prevent iodine deficiency, as well as goiter.
