Scaly Mite in Budgerigars - Budgie Vet - Bird vet

Budgerigars, and occasionally  other bird species, can be infected  by the burrowing mites  (Knemidokoptes ssp.), more commonly known as Scaly Face Mite. In budgies, mostly the head is affected (especially the beak, the cere, and the eyelids). Also the legs and feet can be affected and in really severe cases the area around the bird's vent will show signs of infestation.

Birdvet Melbourne sells moxivet  a topical medication to kill the mites and the moxidectin is applied 1 drop per 30grams, or 1 drop per budgie.  The moxidectin and correcting the diet, and decreasing the birds stress  is usually eliminates the mites.
