What is Antibiotic?

Webster’s dictionary described an antibiotic as a “substance or semisynthetic substance derived from a microorganism and able in dilute solution to inhibit or kill another microorganism” Antibiotics are drugs that destroy or slow down the growth of bacterias. Translated from the Greek words ANTI (=against)  and BIO (=life) are the antibiotics only helpful against life forms, such as bacterias.  Antibiotics do not help against a viral infection in avians, such as the Bird Flu viruses or also fungus infections. On the contrary, antibiotics can do more harm if no bacterial infection is present. It is also important to know that different types of antibiotics interact with calcium (e.g.Tetracycline, Doxycycline). For this reason, remove all kind of calcium-containing products (e. g. cuttlefish bone, calcium block) during the treatment with antibiotic. Note: Do not administer antibiotics and other drugs to your birds without inspection by a veterinarian.
