TRICHOMONIASIS

Information about the most important signs of Trichomoniasis ( canker )

 

SYMPTOMS

  • Loss of condition
  • Bad digestion
  • Bad droppings
  • Crop mucosal inflammation
  • Complications with ornithosis
  • Yellow lumps in the throat

 

Trichomoniasis (canker) is caused by a flagellate ( Protozoa ) living on the mucous membranes of the throat and crop. Trichomoniasis can break out at any age, also in nest youngsters. Clinically it can become a mass of yellow substance in the throat; it is never a loose membrane.

Most of the time Trichomoniasis can be present without the clinical signs shown in the mouth, but it can cause irritation, opening the way for anaerobic bacterial infections which can result in a bad smell from the throat.
