Hen has swollen eye with foamy discharge, breathing through mouth and coughing
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Welcome to BYC. Are these symptoms a result of the dog attack? Have you tried to clean the eye out, and is there any drainage or pus? Is she eating normally. You may want to give her some chopped egg or tuna, and some feed with water added. Some terramycin eye ointment or Vetericyn eye gel to her eye might help treat any infection.
Yes, her symptoms started after she was attacked by a dog. I have not tried cleaning her eye out. I will look into that. She is eating small amounts of food but I wouldn't call it normal. I will look into the eye ointments/gel as well. I worry that she is still breathing through her mouth and coughing. Any advice about that?
