Using Cipro on birds
My 10 year old quaker is infested with some sort of parasite that makes her cry when they are biting her. I know how it hurts, because I have the same infestation (I think she got them from me, I got them from a goodwill mattress). I have been fighting them for 3 years, and so far been unable to eradicate them. This morning I have been diagnosed as having an infection caused by klebsiella pneumonia bacteria, and have been prescribed to treat it with cipro. I have ordered some cleanse from your store to clean our areas (she flies loose in the house). If cipro is effective on me, can it be safely used on quakers? Or do you have any other suggestions for treating her ? Actually, I am aware that this bacteria infection may or may not be the cause of my problems that I think of as being parasite biting, at this point I am clutching at straws trying to find a safe treatment for both of us.
If you have any ideas on how to treat the bird I would appreciate receiving them. Vet administrated ivermectin didn't so the job.
