4 African Grey Parrots

2 of my parrots have worms.

Can I worm them myself?

Can I use Pyrantel Pamoate?

If, Yes - Where do I order it from?

Please, please take these birds immeidately to a qualified Avian Vet in your area. First of all, the type of worm needs to be indentified, so the correct type of medicine can be given. You will have to take birds to the Avian Vet to have the worms identified and the medicines given to you along with instructions on how to give them.

Please, never even consider treating your birds with any over the counter meds or even meds a breeder gives to you or anyone else. Treating birds is the job of a qualified, trained Avian Vet, and they are the only people licensed to dispense medications for birds or other animals.

Your bird's lives will be in danger if you fail to take them to Avian vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment. This is a VERY important message, and hope you will take them in to have worms identified and treated.

Let us know what vet has to say.
