URI and Antibiotics

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone.
I have another question. The little duck I have with a deformed beak has sneezed and clicked since I got her, I had assumed that it was because of her beak. Now my other two who are generally healthy are sneezing and my welsh is yawning often. I tried giving them water to dunk their heads but it hasn't seemed to help. The welsh does have visible dried crusty nose gunk.

What antibiotic would be safe to add to their water and what dose to treat a URI? They are about 5 days old.

I don't know, but someone I know is having the exact same problem....

I am not an antibiotic pro, but duramycin 10 is often used.

 

This thread includes some discussion of dosage.

Thanks Amiga. Our Vet suggested Duramyacin as well for starters. I appreciate your help.
