Treatment of scale on birds beaks and legs.
Scaly beak, legs and feet are most commonly caused by burrowing mites. The mites causing this condition are diagnosed by direct visualization or with a magnifying lens. Scrapings can be taken for microscopic examination. Once the mites are entrenched, the condition can become complicated by secondary infections caused by bacteria and fungi.
If untreated, this condition can lead to permanent disfigurement.
The oils in this product suffocate these mites and act as an antiseptic to treat any secondary infections.
