Air sac mites are tiny internal parasites that invade the air sac and trachea of the bird. In severe cases, they clog the airway making it difficult for the bird to breathe. Gouldian finches and Canaries are highly susceptible to this pest and should be treated at least once annually as a preventative.
Scatt is safe and effective. It typically takes only one-drop to eliminate the mites, though occasionally more than one dose may be required. It is advisable to use Scatt along with a good quarantine routine at least bi-yearly.
See the Vetafarm video below to learn how to administer Scatt!
