Medpet Meditrich – Why we like it:
Medpet Meditrich contains the active ingredient metronidazole. Metronidazole is an antibiotic and antiprotozoal affective against Trichomonas, canker, vent gleet and sour crop in most cases. Easy to dose orally.
Product is labeled for use in pigeons. Consult a veterinarian for questions on species specific dosing.
Here is a series of articles on conditions needing treatment with antifungal and/or antiprotozoal medications:
- Canker – Trichomonas Gallinae (Canker), Sour Crop and Cloacitis (Vent Gleet) Treatment
- Sour crop – Trichomonas Gallinae (Canker), Sour Crop and Cloacitis (Vent Gleet) Treatment
- Cloacitis aka vent gleet – Trichomonas Gallinae (Canker), Sour Crop and Cloacitis (Vent Gleet) Treatment
One cellulose coated Metronidazole tab stops regurgitation and is 93% effective.
The ultimate single dose treatment of Trichomoniasis (cropcanker) in pigeons and raptors. Metronidazole, the active ingredient in Meditrich, is one of the safest and most effective treatments against Trichomoniasis in pigeons and raptors.
Metronidazole is not water-soluble and causes severe regurgitation if dosed in its pure form – the unique “Medpet cellulose coating” of the Metronidazole tablet overcomes both these problems. One tablet dosed to pigeons will cure up to 93% of Trichomoniasis cases.
It is recommended that “youngsters” be dosed with Meditrich on the day of weaning.It is advisable to alternate Meditrich treatment with Medizole and Cankerex to prevent the parasites becoming resistant to treatment. Dose 1 Meditrich tablet per pigeon once a month during the race season.
