Treating him for botulism. I used a flush and have been treating him with probiotic and electrolytes. So far his comb re-profused... so I must be on the right track... Threehorses is helping me save my baby
Nathalie was right on, he's not out of the woods, but hanging on and profusing better. I did the flush with epsoms salts. Right now just keeping him hydrated and a light supply of soupy yogurt probiotic mash with powdered oatmeal and a few drops of poly-vi-sol w/o iron... He's resting quietly. Attempting to crow when I put him down and then acting interested in the sound of my voice. (He's really spoiled and loves me to carry him around fortunately). I'm doing all I can. Created a "nest" that still allows for his diarrhea which I clean consistently. I'll update in the morning. Hopefully he'll be perky when the sun comes up. All this over blueberries... I have so much to learn
Update! He's BACK! I followed ThreeHorses instructions to a tee for Botulism and look at him now!!!
Thanks to all of you for your love and input I was able to save my little booted rooster. He's very back to his old self but I'm going to seperate him out and keep him inside for a while as his poo smells positively toxic! He can gas me out of the room. No dog to blame it on so I can blame it on my rooster LOL.
