    bought three new young palms nearly a month ago, they seemed a bit off but i figured i would give them some medicated food and some wazine and they would be fine. One died last week didnt think it was a big deal, the other two died yesterday. Today my tom seems to be feeling badly, he is lazy and very watery stool..possibly coughing. Assume he will die soon gonna inject him with la-200 or tylan i guess. Gotta try something which would be better? Are these diseases transferable to humans?

    Sorry to hear you're having these losses. Most of the diseases are not zoonotic. Is there a vet school/vet in your area that could perform a necroscopy for you? I'd probably hit ours with whatever med was available (might try Tylan) but, without a dx, this is shotgunning in the dark (could be viral/protozoal/etc).

    Sure wish you and your tom the best.
