Dear Fellow Bird Lover:
Has your veterinarian tried antibiotic after antibiotic trying to clear up some kind of inexplicable infection in your bird? Is your little friend getting worse and worse? Has your bird been diagnosed with yeast infections? Other bacterial infections? Has your flock been diagnosed with "megabacteria"? Are you worried and don't know what to do next? You've exhausted everything you know and everything your veterinarian knows and your bird is still is poor health. Well relax, help is on the way. We are thrilled you arrived at our door. This means to us that you are a caring, concerned bird lover, one who puts their best friends health and well being at the top of their priority list and our type of very special people.
Bacteria conditions in birds are extremely common. From yeast problems, to fading away syndrome, to fungal conditions, to digestion problems, even to elimination problems. The root cause of these conditions is a bacterial imbalance in the body. What causes this imbalance? As is true in most health conditions, many things can trigger this imbalance. Stress from your bird's living conditions--like bringing in a new family member (animal or human) or moving to a new location. Birds are just as emotionally involved when it comes to a new environmental situation. The stress on the little bird who doesn't know what is going on can be just as great as it can be for you. Weather changes are even a stressful time for birds. Extremely hot weather as well as extremely cold weather can and will have a stressful impact on your bird's health at times. A dry house or a very humid house can affect a bird's health. Almost any abnormal (to your bird) change can trigger an imbalance in its system.
Some symptoms of a bacterial imbalance in your bird can be: puffed up and standing at the bottom of the cage, very bad breath, chronic yeast infections, chronic infections, any kind of infection that your bird may have that your vet would prescribe an antibiotic. Another symptom: your bird may be eating, eating and eating, but is getting thinner and thinner. The reason for this is that the gut is shutting down due to a lack of proper flora (among other causes) and the body is not able to absorb any of the food the bird is eating. Digestion requires a balance of good bacteria and pathogenic (bad) bacteria in the gut in order for the body to be able to absorb. The balance of good to bad bacteria is approximately 80% to 85% good bacteria. The remaining balance then would be from 15% to 20% which is bad bacteria that is essential for good digestion of the food your bird is eating. All too many times the wide and indiscriminate use of antibiotics contributes greatly to the bacterial imbalance of your bird's entire body, not just the gut.
Whenever an antibiotic is prescribed, it will indiscriminately destroy all the good bacteria right along with the pathogenic bacteria in the body, thus causing digestion problems and compromising the body's nutritional uptake. Additionally antibiotics suppress the immune system just when your bird needs a very strong immune system to help it combat whatever infection may be present. Antibiotics KILL bacteria, both good and bad, and leave the body in a sterile environment, thus making the body vulnerable to more and more bacterial invasions. This is why and when yeast infections really begin. The yeast begins as a bacteria problem then escalates into a full blown fungus which is what yeast is.
Well, if I shouldn't use an antibiotic, then what am I to do to help my ailing bird? My bird has been sick off and on for ages. Now, my pet even has a yeast infection in its crop, private parts, under the stomach. You probably have tried every antibiotic that your Vet has recommended and still the infection persists. The problem goes away for a couple of weeks, then it is right back to where you started and sometimes with more of a vengeance than before.
The reason the problem continues to resurface is because antibiotics push the infection deeper and deeper into the body. An antibiotic may help mask the problem for a week or so, but the body is absolutely determined to push that infection OUT, thus the problem resurfaces again and again. This yoyo situation will continue to go on until you decide to take control of your bird's health and well being. You need to get the problem OUT OF YOUR BIRD'S BODY once and for all.
How do you get the infection out of your bird's body once and for all?
With a probiotic and herbs!! Not an antibiotic! Not Drugs!!
As foreign as it may seem to you and the vast majority of American's,--use a probiotic or microbial as they are now known. The power of a probiotic is one of the best kept secrets in the United States. In fact the extremely powerful microbial that we use for our animals has been used successfully in the bird health field for over 128 years in Europe. We call it ProBac Adult™ or ProBac Chick™ (depending upon the bird's age).
By using a probiotic, you will flood the body with good bacteria and PUSH the pathogenic bacteria OUT of the body via the feces and urine. ProBac Adult™ will then leave the body with 100% good bacteria in its gut. Studies have shown that a warm blooded animal's bacterial balance needs to be 80%-85% good bacteria and the remainder needs to be 15% to 20% pathogenic. Now the pathogenic bacteria will re-establish itself in a short time? Like we say here at the Avian Medicine Chest™..."bad news travels faster than good news doesn't it? Well, so does bad bacteria". It isn't long before the body's bacteria is completely in balance, while in the meantime, the over-whelming pathogenic bacteria has been flushed from your bird's systems.
Most of the time you will smell really bad smelling feces and even urine. This is the pathogenic bacteria being expelled by the body. This is exactly what is supposed to happen. This is how a good powerful probiotic works. It flushes the infection causing bacteria right out of the body. It does not kill, it flushes the pathogens out and away.
How long does it take before your bird will be well?
Of course it depends upon the severity of the situation and how deeply imbedded the problem is in your bird. The longer you have been using antibiotics, the longer it takes to really really get the pathogenic bacteria out of the body and to rebuild its bacterial balance. It could be two days or two weeks, but normally two to three weeks is pretty standard.
Then what do you do? Keep giving your bird the good microbials to rebuild the bacterial balance in its body. You would not only be building the flora in its entire system, but you would be assisting your bird in its ability to absorb nutrients to the maximum possible, and at the same time you would be assisting the body to rebuild its immune system. For these reasons alone, we give all of our pets a small amount of the ProBac Adult™ at least two to three times a week in their food or water whichever happens to be the easiest to administer.
Can I hurt my beloved bird? Can I "overdose" my bird with a probiotic like can happen with drugs and antibiotics? The answer is no to both questions. In fact, in a time of health crisis, you can "under-dose" your bird, but never overdose and harm your bird in any manner. If the body does not require the good bacteria, then it is not absorbed, it is merely flushed from the body via the feces and/or urine.
Yes, but my bird has been very sick a really long time, is it possible to accelerate its return to health? Yes, definitely. You can and should also use herbs to help restore your bird's health. Many years ago our doctors formulated an herbal remedy called Systemajuv™. The herbal synergies of Echinacea, golden seal, poke root and others in this wonderful tincture have been shown to rejuvenate all the systems in the body time after time, condition after condition. For serious bacterial cases, we always recommend Systemajuv™ and ProBac Adult™ or Chick together in the food or water for a faster more efficient recovery.
We use and recommend this wonderful herbal remedy to promote healing with almost every condition the body may experience. Years and years of successful experiences in using Systemajuv™ with bacterial infections, colds, serious viral conditions of all sorts, toxic conditions and on and on have resulted in us using Systemajuv™ as our "remedy of choice".
We always recommend using the ProBac in conjunction with the herbs because the body will absorb more of the remedies much more quickly. Over the years, it has been shown that an animal will return to robust health and vitality if you use the resources that Mother Nature has supplied.
Another beautiful advantage of using Mother Nature's bountiful pantry is that it is virtually impossible to over dose your pet with her herbs. All of us have been so conditioned by the toxic drug industry that you need to be very careful in using medications. And rightfully so. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association published in June 2000, pharmaceutical drugs kill over 200,000 human Americans every single year. Who knows how many of these toxic pharmaceutical drugs kill our pets each year.
In fact, when administering Mother Nature's remedies to your bird who is in very poor health, it is actually much better to use less of the remedies and administer them more frequently. The healing energy of the herbs are what the body needs. As the energies wane, then it is best to keep giving another amount to keep the healing energies going strong.
In really serious cases such as the time seven out of seventy of our very expensive ostrich chicks came down with pneumonia just after we had met our Doctor who formulated these remedies over the past 45 years. We took his Systemajuv™ and gave it to each bird every waking hour for three days. In fact, we didn't even put it in their mouths because we didn't want to stress them, we put the drops of liquid on their skin under the feathers on their back. This worked well because the skin is the largest organ of the body and it is also the most absorbable. After the three intense days, we then put the Systemajuv™ in their drinking water daily for the next thirty days. We are proud to say that every single bird survived and thrived. No one can tell us that herbs do not work for birds. Our own hair raising experiences defy anyone to tell us otherwise. We would have lost in excess of $35,000 if those babies had died.
Hundreds of our customers have had similar life threatening experiences and have saved their birds lives too. If your bird looks to you with those sad pleading eyes and begs you for help, you too can save your bird.
Until the past ten years or so, almost everyone waited until they had spent thousands and thousands of dollars on their birds health problem. They waited until their vets exhausted all their expertise and had given up on their beloved loyal companion before they would call us. At last, people realize they need to take charge of their little precious feathered family member’s health and welfare just as they do for themselves and their children.
Solve Yeast Problems Too!
If you are fed up with the ups and downs of fighting a losing battle and your poor little bird now has on-going yeast infections due to an overuse of antibiotics, then act now and stop your bird's misery. Order Fungus Supplement along with Systemajuv™ and ProBac Adult™. CLICK HERE to get that fungus out of your bird's body once and for all and get your beloved little friend back to a normal healthy life. It is easier than you might think. A fungus will eventually produce death as fungus affects the bird's breathing abilities, their digestion abilities and it affects their internal organs abilities to function properly. You have probably observed how a fungus grows with moldy food and how the small fibers tend to dominate the food object upon which they derive their nutrition. So too does this happen internally with your bird's body. That is why it is so essential to get rid of a fungus. It can suffocate the living organism from which it feeds.
Don't wait. If you love your bird, don't make your bird suffer one more miserable day. CLICK HERE and order ProBac Adult and Systemajuv directly from our secure ordering page.
