Very sick chicken - Page 2
I would have taken her to a vet if there was one near that treated chickens. I would have to go a between 100 - 200 miles. Her comb, etc is not pale at all. Am I correct in thinking that means she has good blood flow and oxygen? Should I check into the injectables? I will be leaving shortly heading to Murphy and I can go to Tractor Supply.

Oh I'm so sorry. Red comb is a good sign. Stop the Tetracyclines push the electrolytes/vitamins and honey hydration is extremely important. And Tylon 50 injectable. Try 1 cc SQ if she is over 5 lbs 1/2 cc if she is less. I'm sure her kidneys and liver are struggling too. Mereks disease attacks the liver and they waste away too. It's a vicious cycle. If the Tylan 50 and honey with electrolytes don't work.... I'm still praying for her. I will research some more. If I can come up with anything else I will let you know.
Pm casportpony and ask her to read this thread. Your hens symptoms seem to indicate an infection in her digestive system. Tylon will not treat infections in the digestive system,

I am also rubbing an essential oil blend from Dr. Shelton on her legs and feet that is a complete system boost. I also have a liver boost I can use also. I am a firm believer in essential oils for human and animal alike. I do appreciate all the time you have given to help my Ms Comet. Faye
