Can you post some poop pictures?
the sick female is doing better now. She's eating well again. I gave her 5 days of Safeguard. This time i was able to soak pieces of bread with the safeguard and feed them to her without a problem. She appears to be staying away from the 3 others, but they aren't always going after her now either. I'm feeding her separately with 40% protein kitten food along with the regular bird pellets.
Is there any food i should give her to get her weight and energy back up or even to get her size up so she can fight back some?
What does her poop look like? Can you post some pictures of it?
the one time i saw her poop it was running and mostly white with just a little yellow. Sorry no pics
If her poop isn't normal, she is still sick. Do you have a camera?
that observation was on the first day of her Safeguard dosing.
i haven't seen her poop the last few days. But i can say she's eating better and drinking water and her wings are not drooping any more
Yellow is disconcerting, it usually means Blackhead and that is not corrected with Safeguard. Glad she is doing better.
what are we treating blackheads with nowadays?
i searched for blackheads and didn't find any dosing information?
Treatment is metronidazole at 25 mg per pound orally once or twice a day for five days. They almost always have a secondary E. coli infection, and for that you would give Baytril. Most common Baytril dose seems to be 10 mg/kg twice a day for five days. Using the 10% liquid that translates to 0.045 ml per pound twice a day. The injectable can be given orally or by injection in the breast muscle.
