I have a two and a half year old American Buff gander who mostly stopped eating five days ago. He’s been acting completely normal - still swimming, preening, cuddling and all that - so if we’d been going off behavior alone, I would’ve said he was fine. We only know he hasn’t been eating because he’s in a separate enclosure from our girls. His food has been mostly untouched and his run clean of poop when we're usually cleaning out a bucketful every morning. One lab did a fecal floatation and another avian vet did a direct fecal exam and both came back clean. He has been examined by an avian vet who also did x-rays since we thought it might be a partial blockage. They couldn’t see into the gizzard, but everything else looked clear. He’s passing very little that’s solid, but what he is passing is proportional to the very small amount of food he’s eating, and liquid is moving through him fine (he is still drinking) so I’m having a hard time believing it’s a blockage of any sort at this point. He's just not interested in food. The vet thought he maybe ate something to irritate his gizzard. I might have believed that of the girls because they do have full access to the orchard, but since he’s in an enclosed run, I have no idea what he could have possibly eaten. Right now, we’re syringe feeding him Critical Care, Probiocin and Metoclopramide. He's acting more low key at this point, but still mostly normal, although he has suddenly lost the waterproof-ness of his feathers. Like tonight, he was taking a bath in his pool and came out soaking wet. He has constant access to water and his feathers are never dirty - the vet had even commented that they looked like they were in good condition. He's part way through a molt and I'm not sure if the lack of food could be affecting his ability to produce oil to keep the feathers waterproof or if that could be indicative of an underlying condition that has nothing to do with the digestive track. Monday, the vet who saw him is going to forward his x-rays and info to another avian specialist, but we’ve been talking to various vets for the last several days and still have no clue what’s going on. Have any of you ever seen anything similar with one of your geese?
