All of my birds have a depluming mite, and two Green Wing Macaws and one severe Macaw died from sulphur poisoning. I am still using sulphur at a smaller dose, and have to gauge if I need to stop giving by diarrhea stools. I am also giving Avian Insect Liquidator and Doramectin and Moxidectin on a regular basis. My African Gray Parrot (I have had her for all of her 21 years) has had a chronic preen gland infection. The vet finally made an incision to remove a large mass of dead bugs. Now she has a large hole in her preen gland surrounded with mange. I can see the mites under my microscope, but when I give slides to my vet, he can't see them. I am treating her daily by rinsing out the pockets with warm chlorhexadine followed by AIL. I remove as many mites and eggs as possible then give 2 drops of gentamicin opthalmic solution. Then I fill the hole with either sulphur cream of about 5% or silver sulfadiazine. This bird is very important to me. Apparently this mite, knemidocoptes laevis gallinae is very similar to sarcoptic mites. None of the vets know how to treat this. I found directions for sulphur bath on the internet from veterinary texts between 1880 and 1922. My other large Macaws are improving quite slowly. Can your meds be used on birds? I have been treating them for years. Help please if you can.
Thank you so much if you read all this,
