I have read and read and read... but still not sure what to DO... She isn't really eating or drinking... 1 lb 5 mo old bantam... over a day now... some strange noises and open mouth gasps. We can't "see" anything in her throat. I have a tiny bit of ultra guard plus here. (pyrantel pamoate) will this kill the worm(s)? Will it kill my already sick bird? How can I get her to take it as she seems to be not able to swallow possibly. I have NO money for a vet or to drive 25 miles to town and purchase anything if there is any way to avoid it. I really want to treat all my birds, but will have to wait until next week when the finances come in... BUT... if it would save her life, i could probably borrow a small amt of cash if this Ultraguard plus won't do it and something else will... Thank you kindly! Be Blessed! Beverly G.
