Sick turkey

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a 7 month old bronze turkey. He is sick today, was fine yesterday. He is doing some open mouth breathing (doesn't look like gaping), raspy, doesn't want to stand up too much. Breathing seems a bit heavy. Still eating and drinking. I have him in the house as we are having a huge snow storm with very cold temps. He does all of this intermittently. I have Tylan 50, but was unsure how to give it to him (so many conflicting posts) and how much. He's about 50 lbs. He's a pet, won't be eating him. Thank you for any advice.

Welcome to BYC! Is he really 50 pounds already? What I would worry about are heart problems, which are common the big turkeys. If it's a respiratory infection, the amount of Tylan a 50 pounder should get is huge. Is there any discharge from his eyes of nose?
