I have a very sick goose (gosling 8 week old) and I am unable to take him to the vet as I am disabled. I did have a friend that was going to take in a sample of his poo for me but had emergency out of town work to do. Vet said he would have done the test for just 18 bucks..uugh!
Anyways, he first had diarrhea a little then it went to every day. But he was eating and drinking still. Now he’s not eating nor drinking anything.
I have Clindamycin 300 mg capsules, if someone could give me the dosage for a 2 lb gosling, then that’s at least something I can do instead of just watching him die. He an only baby, and an inside boy, but does go out for grass 3-4 times a day.

I was also told that I should get one of these (see photos) for him that would work much better. He’s crop is good, his wings aren’t drooping, but he does open his mouth to breath if he gets too warm, even at night when he’s trying to sleep. Which he hasn’t done much of. I’m going to post photos of the medications, could someone left me know which one I should get to help for bacterial/upper respiratory infection? Also how much I should give. I’m totally new at this, he was an unexpected baby but I don’t know what I’d do without him now.
Thank you!!

Corid is mixed into water, the dosage is the same regardless of the animals weight, just make sure it’s the only source of water they drink. The directions are written on the bag or bottle depending on wether your sister gets the liquid or powder.

Vetrx is useful for mild respiratory issues, it won’t fix this problem, but it can help keep his airways clear if he starts feeling congested. A drop will do.
