Newcastle Disease is a very dangerous poultry disease. It can affect parrots, but the US has been pretty effective at keeping this disease out of the country, so parrot owners here don't know much about it and have no experience in dealing with it. The internet tells me that Jabalpur is in Madhya Pradesh, and apparent there have been recurrent outbreaks in India: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...l.pone.0028414

I would suggest reading the article on this veterinary website at http://www.exoticpetvet.net/avian/newcastle.html There are several different varieties of Newcastle disease, and in the US commercial chicken farms vaccinate their birds against some types but not others. But these chicken vaccines are not used on parrots for this reason:
Quote:
Psittacine birds are not vaccinated against lentogenic and mesogenic NDV, as some vaccines contain modified live virus and could possibly cause the disease. This is because the vaccine was not developed for psittacine birds. In general, modified live vaccines and killed virus vaccines should not cause disease in the species that they were developed to protect.
If I were you, I think I would avoid this vaccine. It sounds like this vaccine is dangerous to parrots, and the vet who recommended it is not very knowledgeable. But I would also want to do more research on the subject to find out whether Newcastle Disease is even a major problem in your area. It might not be.

Are you keeping your birds indoors or outdoors? The risk of being exposed to infected wild birds will obviously be higher outdoors.

Shocked

I am going right now for the necropsy of my cockatiel, is there anything else, I should ask for the necropsy? Something else that is not discussed here?

Also I am posting the feces images of the remaining cockatiel, please suggest are they OK or do I need attention?
(Please ignore other foreign particles in the plate as they are boiled corn)

I honestly can't make a recommendation on the vaccine, as it may be something that is necessary in your country, maybe not. Here in the U.S. there aren't any necessary vaccinations for pet birds, so I'm not familiar. If that is a common disease of pet birds in your country then it's possible, but if I were you I would ask other pet bird owners that live in your area if they give the vaccine to their birds. It may be necessary and it may be just a ploy to get money.

Exclamation

The Post-Mortem was performed and it was found that the cause of death were:
1. Antibiotic Toxicity.
2. Change of Feed (Diet Changes).
3. Mismatch of Pairs.

It was surprising that he was a SHE,

The root cause were:
1. Ulcers in Gizzard. (I physically looked her Gizzard there were lot of redness in the gizzard inner skin)
2. Kidney Inflamed.

Finding:
1. Undigested food in stomach.
2. Intestine almost empty.
3. Lungs Normal.
4. Liver Slightly Darken.

The doctor recommended not to perform culture after death because body started to decompose and the bacteria formation will increase rapidly so the main bacteria causing the problem will be almost very difficult to find.

I think, I killed my cockatiel by giving her a dose of tetracycline, which actually caused her death

I went to the shop-owner and he told me that he frequently uses very small doses of tetracycline to all the birds, even the main dealer in the main city uses tetracycline before handing the birds to the re-sellers and uses tetracycline in very small dose and he also suggests them to use it.

I will never experiment any antibiotic on these exotic birds in future.
I was very disappointed after coming to home, but soon I am happy also..

...Continued in the New Thread.. Death is not an end but Life is a new beginning.

Before ending this post I want to thank EllenD, tielfan & other poster for helping me and educating me the proper process for keeping these exotic birds healthy.

I would recommend not using tetracycline on a regular basis as these dealers seem to be doing. Antibiotics can be very useful when a bird actually has a bacterial infection. But when they're routinely used "just in case" it messes up the gut flora of the birds for no reason, and helps contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your birds may they fly free.
