My bng is suspected to have PBFD. Why suspected but not tested for sure? No, not even a vet nor lab in my town do such test. Believe me, I called and I was told no one does such test. My only option is to send her feather to Australia for a DNA test however this involve crossing the border so it’s not as straightforward. I will contact the lab to find out about posting (exporting)her feathers to them. In the mean time, can you take a look at the photos especially owner with PBFD birds? Here’s the history: In 21th September I found my macaw kept pulling her pin feathers off. I took a look at the feathers, I found puss like stuff at the end. I brought her to a vet , not an avian vet, we don’t have one here. Her WBC was slightly higher so she put her on a week of antibiotic. After a week, it seemed that she was better until two days later... pin feathers with puss again. I started her with Echinacea and milk thistle alternate every week, I also gave her colloidal silver for two weeks. After a month we used the herbs and antibiotic, it’s quite obvious that her condition didn’t improve. Since we couldn’t do any test we could only tried to evaluate based on the herbs, period of taking it and her condition after that. I do not wish she has PBFD! However after antibiotic and herbs... if she only has bacterial infection, wouldn’t already cleared or signs of clearing? A bit about my bng: She is almost five years old,no contact with wild birds and she is the only bird at home since our Galah passed away. She was bred in Thailand. Here are some of the photos from the beginning to the recent one.
