Subject:Bird store antibiotics
Message:Never give your bird pet shop antibitotics. They can mess up your bird more than it will help it. Antibiotics are a specalized thing. Certain kinds treat certain problems. They are also a big waste of money
Medcating your bird should always be left to the vet.

The only exception is broad spectrum antibiotics after a disaster when you know your bird has been drinking contamninted water and you know it has a bacterial infection. Usally it is hard to get a vet when you are in a hurricane zone and then broad spectrum antibiotics can be a life saver.
