    I have 2 baby Seb geese. And one of them seems to be wheezing some. I dont know if she got a chill or what. I gave them some of this med in their water a little while ago... but on the package it dosent say for waterfowl/geese. it just says for chickens/turkeys/swine... so...now i'm worried..plus..i want to get some meds in her asap..so i need to know if they can have it or not.

    They can have Chlortetracycline (aureomycine) or Sulfadimethoxin and ormetropin. Those are the only ones I know that are approved for waterfowl. You can find Chlortetracycline (aureomycine) at most feed stores. Good luck

    This Vet RX stuff can be safe for jsut about anyone and Some times while youre trying to get the right antibiotic or what not maybe it could help them thru the waiting or something
    Just an idea not shure how well it would work
