Sign of recover or not?

Hello,My cockatiel has some red patch spot under wingarm.So I consulted a vet,He told me that it is a type of Infection.So he give me some medicine like Neosporin oinment & Zincovit drops.After applying cream,His skin turns white from Red & he is doing loose motion after taking drops in water. Can you tell me is it a type of recover sign or a sideeffect? He is a grey cockatiel. In 1 Day all these things happen.Are these changes normal?


Hi Shivam,

I’m not sure why the stools would be loose. Is he chewing on the cream? He might get sick if he swallows a lot of it. The Zincovit is just a vitamin drop. Does this Vet treat a lot of birds? Most Vets do not know much about how to treat a bird. I know it can be hard to find a Vet who specializes in birds, especially in some countries. I would check with the Vet again. If you feel that the cream or drops is making the bird sick, you should stop using them and see if that makes a difference. If the skin is not red anymore, it does sound like it helped him some.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
