Canker And Iodine Canker cures. Rate Topic: -----

Has any member tested the effects of using IODINE as a preventative cure against Trichomoniase?

I have read an article of a fancier who uses it (the 10% solution for external use) at the rate of 1ml per liter of water in the drinker when the birds come home from the race. It eliminates not only the canker flagellates but any other bugs they might have brought home from being in the race pannier. Their second drink would be an electrolyte - based replenisher.

They swab - tested these birds and they were clear for most of the week so he started using it each raceday with great success.

Going to try this in my racing season ... proof is in the pudding!

If it keeps Canker at bay worth a shot ;) many old hands use the Lugol's iodine along with parishes tonic and another one beginning with 'c' , mixed together as a tonic :)

Handy Human Health Table of micro organisms that Iodine is effective against, and yes, one of them is Trichomonas.

I wouldn't recommend it as could be too toxic for the birds, Lugols would be my first choice been used for many years :)

Quite correct!

Cytacon or any other B12 supplement.

Further investigation into the use of the 10% solution, which will destroy all bugs, good and bad, needs to be followed by a course of vitamin B12 and probiotics for two days, i.e. Sunday and Monday or Monday and Tuesday.

[Note this solution when correctly diluted will NOT harm the birds. I would say that 1ml/liter is equal to roughly one teaspoonful (5ml) per gallon (8 liters?)] <_<

The reason for this, early in the week, is to ensure that the birds do not drink anything that will make them thirsty, as most vitamins are in a sweetened base.

i asked the vet about the dosage and if it would kill any bacteria, good or bad in the crop,his reply was at the right dosage it would do no harm to the birds but as for killing trichos,fungi,and in general bacteria in the crop he couldnot say how effective it would be unless you did a trial study, that is for v18 used it for 5 years now and still use it never had a problem

Interested in what your vet had to say on this. Over the years I have voiced the opinion that this is for external use only. Yes it sterilises the water the birds are drinking but has no further effect on the bird's innards when drunk.

I have used iodine for ever, couple of drops in the water every 2 or 3 days and not had a case of canker (to my knowledge) in the loft.
one of those things, some will dismiss it, others will be all for it... for me, it does my birds no harm... and having not had canker why stop!

maybe it would be beneficial on a short term use or a quick fix if you think something is wrong.in my view keeping killing good bacteria and bad in the long run is not good for the birds.i prefere to use garlic in the water for a couple of days a week.i use a capful of apple cider vinegar to 2 litres of water almost daily and it seems to keep the birds healthy.also im trying some natural yogurt in the feed once a week.this should be left overnight to dry before giving it to the birds.as this post is quite old has anyone had any problems using iodine in the drinkers?

since you popped this up I have got all the ingredients for the old hand iodine tonic which I intend to use , there are other tonics on the market which are pretty similar , I have worked things out and come up with this recipe :

3 tbsn or 50 mls parishies chemical food
3 tbsn or 55 mls cytacon b12
3 tbsn or 55 mls liquid liver ( Red Cell )
1 tea spoon or 5mls lugols iodine
mix the above together add water and make up to 1 pint...
give to the birds 7 ml per pint of water

1 pint of tonic makes up 81 pints of water

Keep in fridge give Wednesdays
