A couple weeks ago some of my four of my five month old silkies came down with watery eyes, sneezing, and runny poo. I treated them with Duramycin-10. I treated the whole group of six (even the two who did not have it) because they had all been together.
Since then the ones who had it are 100% better. However, the two that did not have it but were on the antibiotic now have runny poo and ear crusties. The one with the more severe signs of this felt hot to touch compared to the other...AND since Saturday, I noticed she feels damp everytime I check on her/feel her. This morning she her topknot was in sections clumped together from moisture. She is maintaining her body weight. Eating/drinking. I put them back on Duramycin-10...hoping it will work.
We live in Florida and there is a lot of humidity in the air...I have the 2 in a playpen on our covered/enclosed porch. So she is not getting wet/rained on. The other is dry and fine.
