I have a hen who's been dealing with what I thought was a respiratory infection for about a month. She was mouth-breathing, drinking lots of water, losing weight as she had trouble breathing while eating. She seemed to respond to Baytril, but after a couple of good weeks she has relapsed. Vet came and removed alot of material from her trachea. He said the culture showed bacteria under a microscope. We started her back on Baytil and she did well for a few days but is now back to square one. Vet has just prescribed Vfend for aspergillus. Has anyone ever used this with success or had experience with aspergillus? I don't want to lose her.
