RONSEC (Medpet) 50 tablet
One of the most highly effective individual treatments for Crop Canker (Tricomoniasis), which has become the leading cause of poor performance in racing pigeons. The incidence of the disease is steadily rising. More and more pigeon fanciers are becoming aware of the problem because they are regularly having their pigeons tested at the vet. It is becoming clear to vets and pigeon fanciers that some pigeons carry resistant strains of Crop-Canker that is not being controlled by any of the conventional Crop Canker medications. Research proved conclusively that the problem of resistance to currently available medication was a world wide problem. Because Crop Canker is a true sub clinical disease that will often have no specific clinical signs and because racing pigeons are constantly in contact with other pigeons it is impossible to eradicate Trichomonas. To perform well in pigeon racing the fancier is forced to medicate regularly against Trichomonas in order to reduce the incidence in his lofts. The use of single day medication against Trichomonas is popular as it saves time and is often more affordable to the fancier. Although some single day medications are still very effective the use of these products do play a significant role in the development of resistant Trichomonas. Currently all the Crop Canker medications are derived from the same group of medicines - this enhances the potential for cross-resistance between medications. This means that if a certain Trichomonas organism is resistant to one Crop Canker product the chances that it will be partially or totally resistant against the other product are very high.
