Mycoplasmosis


Symptoms:

Discharge from the nose, reduced flying performance, unwillingness to fly, flying awkwardly, throat inflammation, rattling and wheezing sound of respiration particularly noticeable by night. Air sac inflammation.

This is a multiple infection with pathogens: bacteria (e.g. Cocci), viruses (e.g. Herpes) and pathogens which belong to the group of mycoplasma organisms. It is assumed that mycoplasma causes severe conditions only in the presence of other infections.

Treatment:

Treat as if treating for Catarrh and in addition sanitize the loft with a good disinfectant such as Oxine, which can be sprayed into the lofts areas while the birds are therein. Sanitizing should take place weekly: spray perches, nest areas and floors.
