The paramyxovirus can cause turning necks and watery droppings ,common knowledge among fanciers. Yet the nervous symptoms are less noticeable and they usually disappear too quickly. Often within one week. The watery manure, can be persist 6 to 8 weeks.
About two thirds of the birds can fully recover from the nervous symptoms without affecting the flight performance. In recent years a number of outbreaks in of paramyxovirose progressed worse. We have seen more death and lean pigeons. Often one thought of paratyphoid, and sometimes it was found while paramyxovirus was in the background .
In case of contamination, the water uptake is not to be limited. If you want to treat affected animals to isolate them is the best. To prevent complications the pigeon can be given a Marbocap and also Bonisol in drinking water. The systematic vaccination of pigeons against paramyxovirus disease makes it seen only sporadically.
