Gastrointestinal Parasites in Birds

Treatment

 

The veterinarian will perform a blood test to identify the specific parasite, and then prescribe anti-parasitic medicine. This is administered orally, either through food or water.

 

Prevention

 

Trichomoniasis 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.

 

If a parent bird is infected with trichomoniasis, it should be quarantined and the young birds should be hand fed. This will prevent the young birds from also getting infected.
