    Please. I tried the natural stuff and it did not work. I need something quick. And dosage please.

    I've been raising chickens for about 15 years and have never ever dealt with gleet. I'm so frustrated. I think it's the guy I bought the chickens from. It looks like another one has it now. Ugh

    This is what I went out and purchased. No clue how to use any of It.

    Can you post some photos of the chickens that are affected by the vent gleet?
    What "natural stuff" did you use for treatment?


    Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic. Do you think she has worms instead of vent gleet?

    The probios is for intestinal health.

    Vetericyn is a very good antiseptic.

    The Topical Fungicide, I am not familiar with, so you would have to research the active ingredient(s) in that. You may want to consider a anti-fungal cream like those used for athlete's foot fungus.
