Help!! Silkie hen treating for Wry Neck 2-1/2 Yrs old

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm pretty sure hen has wry neck. Been treating her with vitamins and started her on Prednisolone Oral Solution 3 days ago. But not any better. Was told to only give her .275ml since solution was 15mg per 5ml... I just recalculated myself and talked to CVS we both came up with .833ml so I just gave her that amount starting today. Everywhere I have read that I should be giving her 2.5mg 2X a day, but she is a very small hen and weighs less than 2lbs. is 2.5mg still the dose I should be giving her? I need some feedback ASAP as I don't want to over medicate or undermedicate my little girl.

I'm sorry you are having trouble.

I don't know about dosages.

 

The only person I can think of is @casportpony you can pm her and see if she can help with your question.

Since silkies are more like 20 ounces, I would only give half of that--1.25 mg.

Thanks I'll drop the dosage down some. She is still not doing good, tomorrow I'll be heading back to SC from the Keys it takes about 11 to 11.5 hours to make the trip, hopefully she will sleep most of the way. I may end up taking her to the Exotic Animal Vet, but first might have to apply for a loan.:(
