I have a hen with ascites from suspected egg yolk peritonitis. About a month ago my vet drained nearly 2liters of yellow fluid from her and she's been slowly filling back up since- the only difference is this time her belly feels solid whereas a month ago it was like a water balloon (any ideas on that?). She is very skinny and not eating much these days-tho I did get her to eat a bit of watered down food tonight and she will usually take treats. She was on meloxicam and I've been giving her dandelion/milk thistle supplements. I came across these 2 sites and have questions (sites listed below...the new IOS isn't liking this site): Should I buy her a different type of feed? What is the harm in the layer feed? Should she be on a diuretic?? Is there a medication or supplement to help her absorb the egg yolk?? Should I ask for more meloxicam?
