The active ingredients within Megabac-S is not absorbed from the gut, nor does it affect the normal gut flora of the bird therefore treatment of the affected bird is completely safe.
Diagnosis of Megabacteria may be difficult. Not all infected birds shed the organism in their droppings, so false negative tests do occur. The most accurate method of diagnosis is the Gram stain of the proventricular mucosa at necropsy. Avian veternarians and pathology laboratories can perform this test.
Treatment time is normally 10 days, during this time no other water source should be offered. For treatment in wet cold or foggy weather, birds must be housed indoors. Treated water should be changed daily. Protect treated water from sunlight. The preferred method is to use the UV protected medication drinker. The medication drinker also allows the water intake to be monitored. If a particular bird is not consuming the expected amount of water (6 ml per 100 gram body weight) then the concentration of the medication must be increased accordingly.
When treating any disease, hygiene and disinfection are critical to the treatment sucess. All cages and aviaries should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with Enviroclens.
