    I'm seriously tempted to send you some Baytril and metronidazole, but would have to clear that with the boss, he can be funny about that.

    My vet recommended Braggs, and she said not to put in in metal containers.

    Probably not a good idea to mix Corid and ACV, but that's just a gut feeling, it's not based on anything scientific. [​IMG]

    And ditto the don't go overboard bit... I just managed to kill an azalea with ACV by being a little too enthusiastic with it [​IMG]

    Wow okay thank you[​IMG] also I thought it was a possibility that the Tylan was taking all of the good bacteria out of her body and that could be the reason for the watery poo. Prior to starting this second round of antibiotics I had put save a chick probiotics in her water thinking it may help and it did a little.I keep electrolytes in all my peas water at all times to help their immunsystem

    These pictures are from peafowl that had blackhead, E. Coli or both. Some recovered with just metronidazole, other had to have metronidazole and Baytril. None were treated with Corid.

    Well lots of folks have suggested that not everything mixes will with Corid... like vitamins can interfere with the way the Corid works, and then that other antibiotic I was just reading about said don't use some kinds of coccidiostats during or a week before or after, not sure if Corid was in that category & didn't have time to look it up.

    Right now, depending on what's causing the bad poo, Corid may be the more urgent need, but hard to say long distance and just guessing...

    Shay, do I take it that the poo has been nasty all along? Since before you started the Tylan?

    eta -- apparently I was typing this while Kathy was posting poo pix...

    Her poo hasn't had blood in it that I have seen but it hasn't ever been like all my other peas poo. Their poo looks about like dog poo and thats normal but hers is and has been watery on and off since we got her .
