    My Silver laced who I have been treating for Cocidia recovered from it beautiful!
    However now she has collapsed. She is looking for food but she wont eat anything, and her right leg is currently almost unusable.
    Its tucked under her and limp.
    What's wrong with her now!???
    Should I post pictures???

    Im sure no one was on, and that's why nobody was able to reply, but sadly im afraid we had to cull her...
    She couldn't move and it wasn't fair to her.
    Thank you to everyone who tried to help though.

    Euthanize.
    Sorry for your loss. It's a bummer when we lose a pet and we don't know why. We just know that it happens. Hugs. [​IMG]

    Quote:It means to euthanize, to put to sleep, to kill (in a more rasher term) and it was horrible...

    Quote:No, whats a bummer is loosing 5 pets all to the same thing and not being able to help them [​IMG] she was the sixth...
    It was determined that they were dying of cocidia, but then I treated her and she got better...Then she went down hill again...
