PLEASE HELP!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an isa brown that is wheezing and sounds like she is having a hard time breathing and she's all puffed up and kinda just standing around and not with the other 10. What could it be? I live in Maine and the weather has been getting colder at night if thay matters.

I dripped some Vet Rx down her throat like the guy at TSC said to do. Checked her throat don't see anything blocking it. Gave her a small piece of bread with olive oil on it. I don't know what else to do. Tonight she is still wheezing....

I haven't any experience treating a wheezing bird.....

....but have read you must be very careful putting anything down their 'throat' unless you have a clear understanding of the anatomy of the mouth/trachea/esophagus.

it's very easy to squirt liquid into their trachea/lungs and kill them.

 

Wheezing could indicate a respiratory ailment/infection or gape worms or wet pox or.....??.... figuring out which, I can't help with as I've never had a bird that sick

 

Not sure VetRX will do any good in this situation as I don't know exactly what the problem is or what the range of application VetRX has.

 

I'd suggest you start a new thread titled (or edit this one's title) with something more specific to the problem (like... my bird is wheezing) other than 'PLEASE HELP'.

 

 

Sorry, that's all I can advise.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
