It is really hard because those i called only occupies mainly to dogs and cats, others are rabbits and small dogs like pomeranian the one that they made me went said he has red mites but i was telling him he has air sac mites he even charged me 250euros for observing and poor handling the bird, he held jack facing downwards coz he noticed his lump and when i asked to let him go jack is almost out of breath and gasping strongly for air and stood in the bottom of the cage for a minute. I took him from the center and said ill pay for his service and consultants and for handling my bird "professionally".

Are you able to order spot-on treatment on line where you are located?

I already ordered scatt from birdpro.uk and it will arrive in a couple of days. It doesn't include any dropper for what is see in the picture. How can i dose it? It does also say 2 drops if 30 - 100 grams. For a budgie it will only take 1 i presume

One drop for a budgie.

You should be able to get an eye dropper from a pharmacy near you of you don't have any of the little needle-less plastic syringes used to administer medication to animals.

If you simply can't get an eye dropper, then I'd use a Q-tip. Dip it into the solution and then carefully place it on the back of the neck between the shoulder blades beneath the feathers. Hold it there for just a couple of seconds and that should be sufficient to be considered one drop. I can't come up with any other way for you to ensure you can get just one small drop administered.

Maybe CaptainHowdy (Amelia) has another suggestion?

Hmm you could use a tiny paintbrush. The type used for watercolour painting, the really fine ones? You should be able to get one drop on that and use that to get it onto the bird.

So dipping in a q-tip is equal to 1 drop. Or a really fine paintbrush. Just 1 drop it takes. I weighed him last time and he was about 38grams i think it will be sufficient.

Thanks guys ill wait for the scatt to arrive.

Just a little update:
So i applied it on july 18 and we reached the 2nd week treatment
He still breathing from the mouth but not so labored and not very clicky. At night i don't see any mites and still using diatom earth just in case.
He is not puffed and sleepy eyes and stays in one place unlike last time and his vent is not dirty anymore and feathers are growing.
He is sneezing often and his cere still has white stuff that indicates discharges.
He is pretty vigilant too when i move my hand he evades it. Poop is normal color no green or yellow on urates and urine. He eats but due to hot weather we are peaking 35+ degrees at daytime and 28 at night now his appetite is reduced he lost 2 grams from 38. i guess healing process is pretty long and it will take time for him to come back in the main cage

Yes, it takes time for all of the air sac mites to die off. Both the adults and the eggs have to be killed. Additionally, if the air sac mites all die off at once, it can cause respiratory blockage and death of the bird.

The mites can be transmitted through drinking water as well as through the air (when the bird sneezes) so you need to keep him away from the other birds.

Keep in mind that after the first application you will need to repeat in twelve days, as during the first time you are killing the mites but not the eggs.

It is very important to sanitize the drinking containers daily. Birds can get reinfected via contaminated drinking containers.

Prevent your budgie from exerting itself. Flights should be prevented until after successful treatment of this condition.

You may have to reapply it yet again a couple weeks after the second treatment.
