This may just be me, but I would never, ever, give my dogs or bird (or even myself) medication unless absolutely necessary. Medication is not generally healthy unless needed and can even be harmful (maybe not immediately but in the long run) when unecessarily taken.I've treated budgies and cockatiels with no problems before so was just wondering about treating chicks. I'm on a budgerigar page woth professional and long term show breeders etc that also use it as often as required
Its used quite commonly for scaly face mites... however I also would want a proper diagnosis and dosage before treatingI wouldn't give it to chicks. Domesticated birds don't normally have mites or worms or anything like that unless kept outside. I have never had a bird with any of those things. They're not like dogs who get them frequently.
Yes and for dogs it's used for demodex. But it's also contraindicated in collie breeds because it's deadly, so I'd be worried about giving it without a prescription from a doctor.Its used quite commonly for scaly face mites... however I also would want a proper diagnosis and dosage before treating
