Ask a Bird Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. You're through to Chris, a Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Would you be able to send me a picture of the affected area?
Thanks for the photos. Indeed yes there is some crusting which could suggest infection with mites (Knemidocoptes). I would suggest treatment with Xeno 50 mini, 3 treatments in total at 2 week intervals. See https://www.vetuk.co.uk/rabbit-supplies-rabbit-treatments-and-supplements-c-649_418/xeno-50-ivermectin-spot-on-9-pipettes-p-1501
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
There will be full instructions with the medication. It is applied to the skin of the back of the neck (after parting the feathers) not onto the cere. You will need to weigh the birds to dose them accurately. Holding in a towel or with gloves may help to achieve application.
You're welcome. Best wishes
