    I took my rooster to a vet, he said rooster is infected with ND virus. He is shaking constantly and is breathing with his mouth constantly open and is sitting in one corner with his right eye closed. I need immediate help. Is there anything I can do to save my poor bird? It seems like he is not gonna make it but i wana try :( Help please :(

    Newcastle virus. That's bad, there is no cure and almost nothing you can do. It has a almost 100% mortality rate. Sorry

    What did the vet advise?
    Newcastle is contagious so the health and well being of your remaining flock, any other animals you have and yourself should be considered.
    It sounds like he is in much distress. Sometimes the kindest and most loving thing we can do for our beloved animals is to let them go.
