Medications

Peafowl are generally healthy creatures who take good care of themselves.    But they still can get quite sick.    For the sake of this article, I won’t be going into every disease and problem known to peafowl.    But I will list the medications used in the health treatment of them and how to keep your flock healthy.



Wormers:

Fenbendazole  
-  Given down the throat (½ cc bird between 3 months and 1 year as drench down the throat for 3 days.)


Tramisol  -   Kills most all of the internal parasites. This should be given by mixing one packet into one quart of water.


Ivermectin  -   Kills all internal and any blood-sucking parasite.    This is to only be used in birds over 1 year of age.    It is given through either a shot un the skin or down the throat.


Levasole  -   Kills most all internal parasites. This should be given by filling the plastic bottle with water, shaking thoroughly and then added to the drinking water.

Keep your birds healthy by regularly worming them and checking for illness often. 

To break the life cycle of parasites for birds not regularly wormed, repeat the worming process in 10 days.   Breeders recommend worming every 3 months.   Toxicity from overdosing with fenbendazole is remote.

Administer the wormer every 3 months:  For Peacocks for example, most give the wormer in March before the Peacock laying season begins and in September when it is over.    Be sure to notice the expiration date on the bottle.    A fresh bottle will have 2 to 3 years before the expiration.     Store it in the refrigerator.

Panacur or Safegard (Fenbendazole…Suspension 10%) 


Fenbendazole & Panaacur are the same product, both made by Purina.

Use the goat drench that is a white liquid.

 3 cc or ½ tsp per gallon of drinking water for 3 days for birds 4 weeks and older. 

Mix fresh daily. 
Fenbendazole Treatments (Fenbendazole..Suspension 10%)


One-day Treatment

1oz Safeguard or Panacur per 15-20 lb feed

a.       Dissolve the Fenbendazole product in one cup of water. 

b.      Mix this solution well into the feed and give to the livestock as their only feed source for one day.   They do not have to eat the whole 15 to 20lbs.   That is just the ratio.   If needed, you can half the medication and the feed. 
Fenbendazole in Safegaurd controls:       cecal worms, capillary worms, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, the taenia species of tapeworms, pinworms, gape worms, lung worms, flukes, nematode worms and nematode larva. Deadly protozoans are also transmitted by worms. 
When checking over your birds, these are things that should be checked to ensure their health is good.

3.    PROBIOTICS:   



Fairly often we have Peacock owners who post in a panic that their bird is sick and that they need advice quickly. Adding to the panic is that they have no medications on hand and that the needed medications must be ordered by mail.

MedPet 4 in 1 will handle the bacterial and especially the protozoan infections your Peacock will incur. Actually, it is good for all types of birds.


Chickens are resistant carriers and heavy shedders of the four deadly protozoans: Blackhead, Coccidiosis, Hexamitiasis and Canker. We find that protozoan infections will spread more quickly and become more deadly among Peacocks, Pheasants, Turkey, Quail and other Game Birds. For the first 12 to 16 weeks, the protozoans that infect peacocks will not trigger an immune response with the same strength as that in found in Chickens.


Untreated protozoan infections will often cause death in Peacocks. Those who do keep Chickens and Peacock in close proximity without problems may count themselves as lucky.


The protozoans effecting peacock are transmitted by worms and worm eggs.   So, worm control becomes an essential part of Peacock health.    In addition to transmitting deadly protozoan infections, worms will also cause intestinal damage and death.


DO NOT BE CAUGHT AGAIN with a sick Peacock and no Meds.
