    I have two questions about this.

    1. What is wrong with her

    2. If it's a disease, or infection will she carry it for life (if she lives)

    sounds like an upper respitory infection.if thats it then yes she will be a carrier for life.you can treat the secondary symptoms but she will be a carrier.sorry.theres alot of people dealing with this lately,including myself.good luck.

    ive just decided to deal with it.from all the research ive done it seems like you have a pretty high chance of getting no matter how good your biosecurity is.im so sorry i couldnt give you a better answer.the only other hope i can give you is,if its a fungal infection there is a med called oxine that is suppose to get rid of it.ive been using it on a sick orp and have seen good results.the problem is,how do you know if its fungal?
