My Silkie has a wry neck....and I need another bit of help (peoplke were nice enough to help me figure out what is wrong with her). My poor baby is getting worse, she is twisted up even worse. I started the Poly- Vi-Flor vitamins, vit e, electrolytes and increase her protein with yogurt and egg I am trying for twice a day she usually only eats it in the morning. We made sure she was eating and drinking even if we had to do it by hand. The next day she was better head just alittle crooked. Today she is very crooked, sleepier than usual, having difficulty eating and drinking because of the head (we have helped her - she did get food and water today). I want to give her duramycin 10 for a few days, incase it is an inner ear infection. My question is this...this is what I have for dosing... if it's the Duramycin 10 that is shown in the link: OK here's the actual dosage math for this brand at 10g per 6.4 ounce package. OK according to this package, they want you to dose at about 500mg - 800mg per gallon of water for chickens. (http://www.durvet.com/L/119_L.pdf ) They state that the dosage will depend on the age of the bird (chicks get weaker strength), and how much they'll drink (birds that drink a lot get a little weaker strength). 10g = 10,000 mg. There are 10 grams in the package at 6.4 ounces. Adults: 10,000 mg divided by 800mg = 12 doses per package. 12 doses = 6.4 ounces. 6.4/12 = 0.54 ounce per serving. We'll say 1/2 ounce per serving. 1/2 ounce = 3 teaspoons (kitchen measure spoon) ******Babies: 10,000mg/800mg = 20 doses per package. 6.4 ounces/20 servings = 0.32 ounce per serving. 0.32 ounces = 2 teaspoons (kitchen measuring spoon)******* the above is courtesy of a post from 7/09 in the site here. I can do the 2 teaspoon, but in what amount of water....she will not drink 1 gallon of water, can I mix it and give it in a smaller amount of water, can I give it to her in a syringe in divided doses throughout the day? She is small about 12-14 weeks and about 3-4 pounds. By the way, normal poops, no mites or lice, bright eyes, no discharges or drainage. We do have 4 standards and her Silkie counterpart is a rooster (surprise to me), all other are fine and show no signs of illness.
