Respiratory infections can greatly reduce the performance of pigeons affect. Because of this, the respiratory tract is healthy essential for fit and high-performance pigeons.
In the case of respiratory infections, there are numerous pathogens that cause very similar symptoms overall.
Often the pathogens do not occur in isolation, such as in
classical ornithosis, but rather as mixed infections (ornithosis
The most common pathogens are: chlamydia, mycoplasma, E-Coli, cocci and herpes viruses.
Young pigeons in particular suffer from the so-called ornithosis complex. Affected animals often show:
- inflamed conjunctiva
- Eye discharge
- Nasal discharge
- Difficulty breathing
The symptoms do not have to appear at the same time and if they occur in isolation, they can be characteristic of certain Be pathogen. For example, inflamed conjunctiva and Ocular discharge often attributed to chlamydia, which is ornithosis cause.
A weak immune system promotes illness
Many respiratory diseases belong to the factor diseases and only arise when several factors come together (stress, weak Immune system, overcrowding, poor posture, etc.).
Many pigeons carry potential pathogens, such as chlamydia, in without getting sick. However, if the pigeons are more stressed exposed, e.g. B. due to poor posture, as a result The immune system is weakened and the pathogens that are already latent are present are more likely to cause symptoms of the disease.
Promote respiratory health
In addition to adequate hygiene, species-appropriate feeding, good ventilation and good posture management should therefore also strengthen the immune system and the respiratory tract are supported.
Animals with a competent immune system get sick less often and get along better with potential pathogens.
Our Breathing free can be used.
Elixir made from various herbal oils such as liquorice, thyme, fennel, anise and peppermint, it activates the metabolism in the respiratory tract, supports the immune system and thus increases the animals' vitality.
For example, natural herbal oils can stimulate the ciliated epithelium of the lower respiratory tract (trachea) to remove the smallest particles, such as B. dust to convey out from the inside.
