Abstract:

Two adult fancy pigeons which were presented to SPCA hospital, Chennai were referred for clinical diagnosis with the history of dullness, anorexia and intermittent diarrhoea. Coproscopic examination revealed the presence of oocysts of Eimeria spp and eggs of Capillaria spp. The birds became normal and active after ten days post treatment with pyrantel pamoate (as a single dose and repeated after 14 days) and amprolium for 5 days.
