Worm-free

Just a quick note.  I took Ogedei to the nearest avian vet (1.5 hours away) this morning.  His mutes are worm and parasite free.  I really should have done it within a week of trapping him but Christmas came up and work piled up after we got back.  At least he wasn’t carrying an infection this whole time.

  1. you might think about using a local vet for fecal smears, one that’s worked with parrots. Saves you a long trip. just a thought….

    • I’d like a local vet in case of emergencies. The one I went to was the closest avian vet my dogs’ vet could find when I asked if they would deal with a bird.

      I’m also trying to find out how to do fecal smears myself. I have slides and a compound microscope, I imagine its pretty easy. Wouldn’t diagnose specific parasites but I could probably determine if parasites are present.or not and if a vet trip is needed.
