What are the symptoms of gapeworm? Is treatment Ivomec? What dosage if buying from a farm co-op? TY
Can you check her mouth and neck for an obstruction?
The symptoms you described look like respiratory illness. sneezing, frequent cluck sound, shaking head and esp. gasping for air. I have successfully and completely cured my peafowl with Baytril also called Enrofloxyn 10% solution, is available on line without a prescription. I treated mine with 1cc oral feeding with a syringe after diluting with 1 cc of water to avoid any CAUSTIC EFFECTS OF THE DRUG, for 7 days successively.
Baytril info for those that might be interested.
Had incident with baby peafowl with string wrapped around back of tongue and able to safely remove. Maybe need to investigate this further, I just thought it was odd that only the peahens are exhibiting these symptoms, and they are in different pens.
Where do you purchase Baytril?
Where do you live?
I live in Tennessee.
Are you sure it's not normal peahen behavior? Do they "gasp" with every breath?
They do not gasp with every breath but appears like they've swallowed something and it won't move down the throat. My husband thought its just something maybe the hens do as we are new to peafowl, but they do sneeze and shake head at times. Its a husky cough.
