    Hope the vitamins and medication help Candy so that she will be 100% soon.

    Birds have feather tracts on their body which help to cover up bare areas... so some of what you are seeing might be normal.

    Cockatiels are naturally dusty birds, so may sneeze a lot if it's dry and they get a lot of dander in their nostrils. Increasing humidity may help.



    There are a lot of medications that humans, dogs, cat and even birds get - however, the concentrations they get varies depending on not only species, but size. *IF* human medication is given to our dogs, cats or birds (rather than using the equivalent geared towards said animals), then it's recommended to go with a medication geared towards kids. Adult strength medications may be too strong.


    Sorry though, I don't know about the meds the vets prescribed.




    Have you ever tried using this website to search for an avian vet? There might not be any local to you, but it might be worth a shot?

    Thanks
    Yes I have searched before unfortunately there isn’t any vets here. Currently I’m giving Multi Vitamins and Diphenhydramine ( for kids ) to my bird. He hates syringe so I add 3 drop of Multi Vitamins to his water and 1 drop of Diphenhydramine to Cerelac.

    Questions :
    1. What should I do to broken tail feathers ? Should I cut them ? Or take them off ?
    2. Is it good to use Antiseptic spary for his feathers ?

    Broken feathers can be either or... I mean, if they are broken, you can cut them at the break, or leave them be and your bird may eventually take care of them.


    Can't answer about the antiseptic spray.

    I would hesitate to use anticeptic spray on my bird unless a bird vet told me to or the spray had specific instructions that said it's ok for birds. I certainly wouldn't want anticeptic in my mouth and the bird would do that when preening
