    I found a vet willing to look at Sadie yesterday. Long story how I got my foot in the door but anyway she got a shot and a 14 day supply of meds. The vet does not do surgery on birds but I got a blow by blow description on how to do it myself. Basically it was the same info I got from dhyunicorn plus Shellyd2008 had the same idea. "YOU GIRLS ROCK"

    Last night while I had Sadie loose in my brooder room she was running around playing and jumping. I could tell she was feeling a lot better. The hanging wing still bothers her but in a few days that will be gone for good.
    My PM is full so feel free to e-mail me me at mopuppy5@ netzero.com Positive replys only Please.
    Thanks, SARA & SADIE

    No the med is tetracycline. Some forum members may wonder how I got baytril but this is a med I got from a vet to treat venomous snakes. There are some vets that will look at a snake for you and prescribe meds but will not treat the snake. It's all up to us to adminster dosage.

    [​IMG] That vet rocks. I can't even find one who'll answer a question about chickens or goats, much less write a script.

    I think it's wonderful that you didn't give up on her. I am so glad to hear she is doing well, I have been thinking of her daily. I hope she continues to improve and look forward to more updates and maybe a pic. [​IMG] WTG Sadie!
