Respiratory Parasite in Birds

Treatment

 

Your veterinarian will examine and test the bird for sarcocystosis disease. If found, your bird will be given anti-protozoal medicines orally or by injection. The veterinarian will then treat secondary symptoms, including anemia, fluid loss, and malnutrition.

 

Prevention

 

Hygiene is the best prevention for sarcocystosis. Keep your bird caged inside home and store the bird feed in a place away from cockroaches or other infectious animals.
