    Dont reduce to half. You've got to hit canker hard and fast because it can get into the esophagus and crop as well as close off the windpipe.

    Ok, thanks dawg53! I will continue with a whole tablet once a day. She’ll be on her 3rd dose today. She’s definitely improving!

    So my hen finished her 5th dose of Fish Zole yesterday. She still has some of the cheesy gunk poking out of a pocket in her cheek. It almost looks like the pocket was closing up, but didn’t close up all of the way. When feeling her jaw area, it has a hard lump in it, as if the cheesy stuff is still trapped in there. Should I start her on another round of Fish Zole? Or should I try maybe Enfloxil 10% (Baytril)?

    If it is improving I would continue the metronidazole.

    Ok thanks! So another 5 days? I didn’t give her a dose today though. :(

    If it is improving keep giving it until two days past it clearing up.

    Okay - thank you so much! Should I try tweezing the cheesy stuff (that I can see) out of her mouth, or just leave it be?
