Q: How can I prevent or treat my birds if they have harmful parasites on them?
A: There are safe bird dewormers on the market. Only use one made specifically for birds. For external parasites, a powder such as Karbadust can be used, but must be dusted off well. There are also several sprays on the market registered for use in birds. Ideally, you should consult your avian vet for the most appropriate and safest treatment plan.
