Pigeon is at the vet
Hello :-) We have a flock of piegons who come to our backyard every day and we feed them and give them water and seed and we love them a lot. A few days ago I saw one that looked sick so today I took it to an avain vet. THe avian vet said he has parasites and worms and that he is very very skinny because of all that. My pigeon has to stay at the vets for 2 days to be force fed and looked after as he is not eating. They are also giving him medication for the worms and parasites. The avian vet said that he has a 50% chance to survive but I know he will survive because I am praying for him.
When my pigeon gets better and comes home, what should I do to take care of him? The vet said I should keep him separate from the other birds. I hope he didn't mean forever- did he? The pigeon will be lonely if I put him in a cage forever away from his bird flock and bird family. How long must I keep him separate from the other birds in his flock for? What can I do to prevent the rest of the flock from ever getting these things? Is there something I can put in their water say, to prevent all this? Thanks heaps for your time :-) Kind Regards, from Christina in Australia :-)
