Any news? How is she today?
Necrotic enteritis or coccidia? Vets could not diagnose and not seeing improvement with current treatment. Please help! - Page 4
Tylan 2x day
(Just through tomorrow) Amprolium in water and 1 drench per day.
Sucralfate for ulcer relief: prevention 2x day
*have not started this * Pepto Bismal up to 3 x day for diarrhea.
I will tube her 2-3 times a day. She had lost a couple of ounces.
What do you think?

I DID IT! Thanks to all of the wonderful encouragement and help from Kathy and Free Spirit and the demo given by my vet it was totally non traumatizing to either one of us! lol Thank you Kathy for encouraging me, this really was a weird fear for me and I am so glad I listened to you and didn't wait longer. At least now if we lose her I will know I truly tried everything I could. I am praying that with the extra hydration and calories plus the meds she will turn the corner! Btw I did one part formula to 4 parts water since it is later at night. Will decrease the water in the ratio some tomorrow morning and maybe up it to 30mls? I did almost 25 mls and her crop wasn't very big afterwards. Thank ya'll so much!

So Proud of you . It seems scary at first but as you found out it's actually pretty easy.
I pray that with all the love and care your giving her that she'll pull through . Please keep us updated on her progress.
My opinion (perhaps Kathy can correct me if she feels otherwise as I defer to her as the expert here) is to go ahead and increase her feeding if you feel you should. Since you are the one there with her you are going to be the best judge of whether she can take in more food. I was feeding my goose 4 times a day every 4 hours but my goose was not eating anything at all on her own for over two weeks.
I don't think you need to add the pedialyte (again, Kathy can correct me if I'm mistaken) as the bird formula has all the nutrition needed as well as probiotics. The pedialyte was for the initial "liquid" only feedings before starting the formula.
I really do understand how you are feeling at this moment. I (very recently) had that same feeling with my goose a couple weeks ago when we hit rock bottom and I thought I was going to lose her for sure.
You are not alone. We are here to listen and help any way we can. You are doing everything you can to help her and as long as she is still with you there is always hope.
Thank you so much, this is the first time where I really feel I am losing her. I just have no idea what this is. Also whatever that is in her stool is concerning. Do you think it is ok to give her the soft canned veggies, a tiny bit of fruit, a few mealworms, unsweetened applesauce, and I also got some baby food- spinach kale and apple mix? I don't want to make her worse but I want her eating at least something.
I would think that if she is eating some on her own that is a good thing. Kale is excellent and full of vitamins and mealworms have protein. So if she eats those let her. If you give her fresh leafy greens make sure you chop it up really well if she is not getting any grit.
I wish I could help with the stool. I enlarged the picture and couldn't figure it out either. Therefore, I don't know if it's a good sign or bad sign.
