They called a little while ago and confirmed. They said they could give me rx meds if I wanted to bring the chick in for an exam ($48 just for reference in case someone else wonders about cost, same as dog) or I could continue my own treatment. I do like them and feel lucky to have an avian vet in such a small town. At this point I think I should continue my course, but still wonder if I should make up the difference in the amount of dose to water ratio and somehow make up the difference for whats already wet in the feed since that is where some of their hydration is coming from and not solely the medicated water as directed? Does that make any sense?
I do not wish to do dry feed if I don't have to. But I also don't want to be giving them (essentially) a watered down version of the Corid only to have the cocci get stronger.
So, all chicks are still eating, playing, preening. If I wasn't so obsessive, I may not even know they were sick. I've seen maybe 10 red poos out of 10 chicks in 48 hours. All the rest were visually normal. Am I jumping the gun expecting to see recovery before it has even shown more symptoms?
Again, I know this is an FF thread, and my main question is actually about FF in correlation to dosing for water.
I actually love doing fermented feed. Even the process of dishing it up and mixing is cathartic or therapeutic. I enjoy doing for my animals.
Thanks for your time and input.
