hi guys do any of you treat for respiratory ? ofcourse if your birds are showing signs but what if there not? i was chatting to a guy who said his birds seemed fine but tried some stuff from spain said his birds flew better, i just wondered if others treated or use something as a natural treatment

i think it very important to keep the birds clear especially when training and racing , try running 500 yds with a peg on your nose, also i think a lot of youngsters are lost when suffering with respiratory infections especially when their eyes are clouded its like trying to see through frosted glass MycoformT from Aviform good stuff

i use it once every 2 weeks genrelly on a tuesday but if you were to buy it i would treat with it for 5 days to make sure there is no hidden respriory infection you cant see,
is a real good product in my eyes and cheap

For old birds i would give it once a fortnight , try to give it the day they go to a National or over seas surprising what they can pick up in the baskets , Young birds i would give it every Friday before a race and when they get home, or use this one week and a alternative the following week , we've used Aviform Ultimate for years and wouldn't be with out it, all our birds get it on a Sunday and Monday, but please treat your birds for everything before ,it will really help the birds but they have to be clear to start with, usually Aviform stall at Blackpool sells certain stuff two for the price of one while stock lasts, we find as well as Aviform ,gem products are really good to, Phil

there are hundreds are products on the market for respiratory but really depends if you want to cure it or prevent it as there are different treatments for different problems personally for prevention mycro form t to cure doxi but then you must remember when useing antbiotics you must multi vits but even if multi vits isnt used in correct manner you can cause the pigeon more harm ie if you use multi vit put on corn as when put in drinker sudden changes in temp causes bactrial infection to pigeons ie soar crop hope this helps

you pigeons will tell you if they are not right good heathly pigeons will exercise
