    Is it ok to put tetracycline and the sav-a-chick electrolyte/vitamin supplement in the same bowl of water? It won't dilute the tetracycline or have negative effects somehow?

    I don't know - I think that question has been asked before but I don't recall the reply. I have lost track - who is ill?

    Yeah I've tried searching and haven't found anything on it so haven't wanted to risk it messing up her antibiotics.
    It's my muscovy Junie that's ill. Looking back, I think she got a respiratory illness around the middle of February when here in Florida we were having wet, cold and windy weather. I didn't realize she was sick at first though, then I think I wasn't giving her a strong enough dosage of tetracycline (I started giving it to her on last Friday, I think) but now she's getting a strong enough dosage she's showing improvement. Today she actually took a bath using her water bowl and she had a solid (though still green) poop :)

    Well, that's sounding better. I hope she keeps getting better and is all over this soon. Many happy years together. [​IMG]
