Trichomoniasis ('t Geel) The official name is Trichomonas Gallinea. In the pigeons, this disease is better known as 't Geel, of' t Steen. In England, this disease (pigeon cancer) is called pigeon cancer.
 
Causes
The trichomonas are caused by a protozoan, a unicellular creature; In liquids it moves through a whip thread. There are several tribes of this trichomonas known in the world, one of them is deadly for every pigeon, other tribes are so sick that when the pigeon carries this trichomonas, he finds very little of it. In our country, the disease-producing capacity of the trichomonas strains is very small to severe.
 
Illnesses
The least serious symptoms of this disease are a slightly red throat. Words the matter more seriously than we see mucous membranes occur. Yellow points in the throat are places where the parasite has turned the tissue on to form a cheese-like substance; These places can grow so that they take the entire throat cavity, not only in the throat cavity but also in the underlying tissue, affecting the muscles and even the jaws of the jaw.
A preferred site is also the liver; In the beginning, only small yellow dots are visible on the surface, but these places can grow up to five centimeters; In this latter case the liver will be destroyed. Around the heart can also be a thick skin that obstructs the function of the heart.
In the young pigeons infected by the parents, the navel can be affected. We then feel a hard-thick disk (the name of the stone), which involves a string, based on this disc, in the body.
 
Infection
The infection takes place via drinking water, it is also possible via outbreaked food or via the milk. Old pigeons will contaminate each other through the drinking pot and the easier when the drinking water has been in the cage for a long time and the temperature is high.
Young pigeons will be infected by the parents when fed with milk. Just the milk of milk is a good diet for this parasite. When contaminated body milk comes into the yet unfinished navel, the trichomonas will ignite the navel.
 
Therapy
Against trichomoniasis there are several good preparations in the trade that you can get from the vet.
One should not try to remove the yellow veins in the throat, because these worsening increases so that the risk of blood vessels stopping by bleeding becomes too high. In addition to medicine, the sites of iodine tincture can be covered.
However, once you have seen one pigeon with trichomonas, you must treat all pigeons. This disease is so fast from one dove to another, that once you have seen one patient, it is certain that many other pigeons are already infected.
 
Prevent
Of course, the best of course is to keep your pigeons free and stay trichomoniasis. Because it has been shown in recent years that a slight infection, however small, is affecting flight performance, and there is a risk that the pigeons will be infected during transport, you should check the pigeons not only for the flight season, but also To watch extra during the fly season. In order to stop any contamination, it is advisable to do some Halamid in that water during the daily refreshment of the drinking water.
Some crystals Halamid do not adversely affect flight performance while the trichomonads are killed and the pigeons will retain a "clean throat".
An inoculation against trichomoniasis does not exist. However, you can give a drinking drink for the breeding and / or the fly season to kill the trichomonads that may occur in the throat.
