for primary and secondary bacterial infections in the drinking water.
NOTE: Remove all other water supply including fresh greens & fruit during treatment.
Limited use of Antibiotics
The use of antibiotics should always be the last resort. Over use of antibiotics can result in drug-resistant strains of bacteria to develop. However, if you strongly believe that infection is indeed caused by bacteria then I would treat with the broad spectrum antibiotic Amoxitex. This will eliminate any bacteria that the bird may be carrying. Make sure you follow the label directions and give the full course of antibiotic.
Anytime you administer a medication (including antibiotics) you should discontinue use of all other dietary supplements. Some vitamin and mineral supplements may render the medication ineffective or react with the medication leading to more illness and or organ damage.
