Bird Biotic (Doxycycline Hyclate) is used to treat local or systemic infections affecting birds. It is recommended for use in most kinds of pet birds, as well as exotic birds and pigeons. The active ingredient contained in this medicine is classified as a tetracycline antibiotic, and it is known to be effective against gram negative bacteria, some gram-positive bacteria, anaerobic bacteria and various other types of microorganisms. It works by inhibiting the process in which the bacteria synthesize their essential proteins. This helps to eliminate the bacteria and allows the infection and its symptoms to clear up.
This antibiotic is not intended for use in birds which will be used for food.
Before treating your bird with an antibiotic, it should be brought to a veterinarian so that its condition can be properly diagnosed.
