I just went and check and let them out for the morning. It seems as though the two that were at the vet look fine/are acting normal. They had a watermelon snack and gobbled up their Mazuri food in their water. Making lots of noise, and still pooping (their poop may look a little whiter than normal—but this could totally be me just looking for something to assess).
Should I start them on antibiotics anyways? I’m worried about trying to separate them and dose them correctly. Plus, I’m not comfortable putting it directly in their mouths due to possible aspiration. Do I try and dribble it on food then?
I’m sorry for so many questions, I just don’t want to start them on something unnecessary or give it to them in a harmful way.
Glad to hear they're doing better.
Sorry for the late reply! I never got the notification, I guess. Thank you so much. They are doing better, but my khaki campbell now has bumblefoot (I think she cut her foot in our debacle to get to the vet, as she’s my feistiest duck). If the infection gets bad, should I use the antibiotics then? The antibiotics she gave me are SmzTmp Oral Suspension (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). Thank you again!!Glad to hear they're doing better.
The poop looks normal to me.
What kind of antibiotics did she give you? If they appear to be doing fine, I would see no reason to unnecessarily treat them.
