What are some Egg Yolk Peritonitis treatments?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

After my last post http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1023358/help-chicken-trouble-breathing-and-blood-clot-in-mouth 

I think ive decided that my best diagnosis is one suggested by a reader: Egg Yolk Peritonitis. My hen is about 4 years old and stopped laying about 7 months ago.

 

Her symptoms include:

 

slow walking 

squatting

breathing heavy

swollen abdomen (i dont feel an egg) 

fluffed feathers 

tail is turned down

huge blot clot in mouth

just seems very "off" 

 

she is not constipated 

 

Now the only thing that seems to be unexplained is the blood clot. it is pea sized. Do these symptoms sound like Egg Yolk Peritonitis? if not what is it? if so what can i do?! 

 

Thank you ahead of time to anyway who responds
