Food Regurgitation (Vomiting)

Most of the food regurgitation cases are treated by giving fluids; saline to replace the fluid lost because of diarrhoea and giving small pieces of food if the falcon gains his appetite, then gradually increase the quantity. Meats that are easily digestible are preferred, example quail. If the symptoms persist the falcon should be brought to a veterinary hospital immediately for further investigation and appropriate course of action. To stop the regurgitation you can give antiemetic drugs like Metolcopramide 30 minutes before feeding.
