    New member here! I have a wry neck problem and am giving her vitamin E, probiotics and electrolytes in her water. I couldn't find selenium.... could that be why she is not getting better? Thanks for the help and I look forward to talking to you all and learning so much.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I see that you have already posted on the ER forum. I've never had to deal with the problem of wry neck, so I cannot offer any advice. The ER folks know their stuff, so feel free to ask on that forum.

    Best wishes

    It would help to see a photo of her showing how she holds her neck. What breed? How long has she been exhibiting this?

    She holds her head to the left and almost underneath herself. She is a barnyard mix that I hatched in a incubator. She hatched like this
