    Gapeworm or respiratory????

    Update. Decided to treat for respiratory. I could only find Duramcyin. She’s had two shots, second one we have two days after the first. She appears to be better. She’s not gasping anymore she only sneezes once in a while. Should we continue with another round of shots???

    Gapeworm or respiratory????

    Would you suggest trying to treat for respiratory first? She got noticeably thinner too. She was pecking at some food when I left the house today. I’m headed to tractor supply now what would you suggest using?

    She’s been wheezy ever since I got her about 6 months ago. I never thought anything of it becuase she never showed any other symptoms.

    Gapeworm or respiratory????

    It would be but there is not one near me that treats It would be if there was one near me that treated them. I haven’t looked in the back of the throat yet. I’ve read that gape is not very common in chickens. I just don’t want to treat her for the wrong thing.
