I didn't think she was going to make it threw the night, but she did.
Iv done tons of research and I think she has gape worm. Showing all the signs.
I bought safeguard de wormer for goats.
How much can I give her?
She isn't eating. Iv been giving her water by a dropper.
Is gape worm contagious to my other chicks?

I'm sorry I don't know anything about medication. But you could try pming Eggcessive or casportpony, they no more about meds i think. Yes, i'm pretty sure gapeworm is contagious. Hope your chick gets better! :fl:)

I gave her 2 doses of the meds. .5 ml each time. She was doing great chirping a few hours ago, but now she's laying on her side again gasping. I'm determined to save this chick. I have her in a brooder by herself. The other chicks were pecking at her. Any advice? sad.png
