    I was taking my pills this morning and my beloved pet house chicken jumped up and swiped my 100mg Zoloft. I tried getting it out of her throat but it was too late. There are NO avian vets local or in the vicinity. She seems OK right now. This was about 30mins ago. She ate, drank water and is now preening herself on my lap. Anyone have any advice??? TIA

    Ok did a quick read and I would try to get some activated charcoal down her. I keep it in capsule form for myself and have given it to my livestock in an emergency. You can get a paste from TSC also.

    Thanks HeatherLynn. I was wondering about AC. I'll run to town now and get some.

    Gave her the charcoal and provided her with wheat bread and water. Fingers crossed. She seems very sleepy. I adore this girl, so I'm praying she's OK.
