I've given my hen the 3 days of 1/5cc of Tylan and she doesn't seem any better. She still has a smell, pasty butt, and generally looks bad. Plus she has this gurgly sound to her breathing. What else can I do for her?
First, I see in my post, I said, 1/5cc, it was 1/2cc.
Her poo is yellow/white and like paste.
The vet's around here are limited in avian care. The last vet I took a hen to, charged me over $100 basically to tell me she was going to die. I medicated her and cared for her and she is one of my best layers.
I would dose her again with tylan. Or, there is another med that I really like and seems to clear things up fast and that is LS 50. It is another off label use to give it to an adult bird, but it does work wonders. It is water soluble.
See if you can find some. You need to make sure she eats. Try giving her boiled egg, cat food anything that will get her to eat.
You have to remember if this bird gets well she could spread this to other birds in your flock.
