At the shelter I work at, some of the heavier birds have come down with bumblefoot. We are a suburban shelter and the veterinary staff isn't very familiar with treating livestock. In the article on the first state vet supply website it was recommended by Peter J. Brown to treat the birds with an antibiotic first before doing surgery. the recommended antibiotics are Lincomycin, Doxycycline, or amoxicillin. The article also states that Cephalexin capsules work great for soft tissue as well. Does anyone have any experience dosing chickens with these meds? How do you administer the meds? Are they given orally or injectable? There are only 3 chickens right now that need the treatment and they will be isolated from the other birds. I would appreciate anyone's advice or info on this matter!!
