Intestinal Parasite in Birds

Treatment

 

The veterinarian will perform a blood test to identify the specific parasite, and then prescribe anti-parasitic medicine, which is administered orally.

 

Prevention

 

Giardiasis is often prevented by storing the bird food carefully and hygienically. Also, take your bird into the veterinarian regularly for parasite testing and health checkups.
