I am new to chickens. I went to the feed store to ask about a chick that was only a few days old that had consistent pasty butt. I would clean her off and within an hour or so she would be blocked again. The gal quickly told me to start her and the other chicks on Terra Vet-10. When I got home unfortunately she had passed away The other chicks were happy and seemed healthy to me. The gal said I should start the others on it anyway. They have been on it now for 4 days and from what I have read it is used to treat respiratory diseases. They don't have that though. Should I stop the meds? Is it safe to stop? I'm worried about both sides. If I stop mid treatment am I opening them up for becoming med resistant later on? Or am I damaging them by them being on a med unnecessarily?
