Sick Guinea Keet

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I don't know what's going on with this one little keet I have. We bought 9 and this one seems very sick

It's eyes are puffy, and today blood started coming out of one and you couldn't see the eye.

It's feathers are very ruffled and not straight

It's feet began swelling about a week ago and they started cracking, bleeding and scabs where on the sides of its toes. When you look at the bottom of its feet you can see cracked places in the toe creases.

I don't know what's going on! Please help!

I am thinking that if you want a chance at saving this keet, veterinary intervention will be required.

Cut your losses. Immediately get this chick away from the others in case it is transmissible. Put the poor thing out of its misery.

Sometimes you can't save them all. I am sorry for your keet.

 Warm Regards,  :hugs
