Canker/Cochlosoma is the most commonly encountered protozoal disease in aviculture. It can devastate finches and canary breeding flocks and is a significant disease in exhibition canaries. The classic "cankers" (large yellowish masses in the throats and crops of birds) are the "tip of the iceberg" when it comes to the disease. Many other effects are seen from Trichomonads.
Sign of Protozoan infection: diarrhea, yellowish/green droppings, undigested seed in droppings, dirty feathers around the vent, molting problems and sleeping during the day, head tucked over their wing feathers. It is best to treat your birds before the breeding season.
Protozoan infections are very serious and common cause of hatchling, young and adult bird deaths. These single cell parasites are present in most birds kept in captivity and become active during stressful periods such as during the breeding season. Because Protazoa are persistent organisms, and in many cases infections can only be controlled and not eradicated with the use of drugs regular treatments need to be part of any aviary management program. New introductions and birds in quarantine should be routinely treated at recommended rates.
Resistance to antiprotozoal drugs is common. Unlike the other chemicals in its group, Ronidazole is safe to administer as often as needed and will not harm hatchlings or young birds. In persistent cases in finches, mix Ronivet-S 6% at 4 times the recommended rate. Add 1 teaspoon into each liter of drinking water. Use solution mixed at 4 times dose for 3 days, normal dose for 4 days has been found to be effective.
Dost rate: Mix 4 g in 4L of drinking water for 7 days.
Budgerigars, fancy pigeons and other avian species: treat for 7 days 4 times per year.
Pigeons: Racing season – treat for 7 days every other week.
Pigeons: Breeding season - treat parents for 7 days prior to joining then medicate for 7 to 21 days when young birds hatch.
Made up Ronivet-S 6% solution may be kept in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Empty and refill drinking water containers with medication daily. Remove all other water sources when treating.
